Berkeley, CA (February 18, 2020)—Bay Area-based audio post houses IMRSV Sound and Berkeley Sound Artists, whose combined client roster includes Disney, Marvel, Facebook, Apple, Google, and XTR Media, have merged and will operate under the IMRSV name with an expanded service offering.
“We will provide the highest caliber, and most heartfelt post-production sound work available in the Bay Area, says Jacob Bloomfield-Misrach, CEO of IMRSV Sound. “It is a privilege for me to add a full-service recording studio to what Jim LeBrecht has already built, and to offer additional services to this community of filmmakers.”
Berkeley Sound Artists has operated in the Bay Area for over 25 years and has been a leading force in the independent film sector, with services including sound design, dialogue editing, and mixing. The new company will add music composition, orchestration, and an array of commercial voiceover and sound services.
LeBrecht, as well as being the founder of Berkeley Sound Artists, is co-director, along with director Nicole Newnham, of Crip Camp, a Netflix and Higher Ground production which will premiere at this year’s Sundance film festival.
LeBrecht says, “I wanted an audio post company that reflected my strong interest in creative sound design and high production values. I am grateful to have found a partner in Jacob that not only matches my passion for quality audio but will help elevate what we are able to provide to our clients.”
IMRSV Sound, a full-service sound house providing ADR services, film scoring, 5.1 surround mixing, sound design and dialogue restoration, will continue operations at the Fantasy Building, in addition to serving clients in Los Angeles and on the east coast.
