Suffolk, UK (June 22, 2010)–UK acoustic and studio design consultancy White Mark Ltd. has been awarded the contract to design and build a new film facility for Russian company Cinelab.
Due for completion at the end of 2010, the new complex will have a total of 14 studios including four dubbing theatres, two of which are very large and will be built to Dolby Premier License criteria. It will also feature an extensive and highly specified Foley suite, multiple edit and pre-production suites, sound design rooms and a large orchestral studio.
White Mark Ltd. beat off stiff competition from other studio and acoustic design companies to win this contract–a fact that the company’s managing director, David Bell, puts down to its solid reputation for delivering first-class results.
“In recent years we have been very fortunate to work with many of the top post production facilities in Soho and around the world,” says Bell. “We have also won prestigious awards for our facilities in the music recording field with our projects for the Hit Factory and for Red Bull in Los Angeles. Coupled with our work for such large film facilities as Savalas in Glasgow, Real World Post and our work with Grand Central at the Parliamentary Inquiry into Crossrail, our profile has been raised and people are understanding that we have an almost unique experience of all aspects of technical design, along with an ability to produce a comprehensive solution to any mix of facilities needed by their business, wherever they are in the world.”
White Mark is working closely with local architects and builders to completely refurbish the building that will house the new Cinelab complex. Cinelab already owns a number of preview theatres and edit suites close to the new complex. The new complex will allow Cinelab to expand its remit and offer an entire audio post production service to its customers.
