Brighton-based post production company Virtual Post has upgraded its audio facilities as it aims to to expand into a broader range of genres, including natural history, drama, animation and branded content.
The company has added a second 5.1 mixing studio with Genelec monitoring to its new central Brighton premises and upgraded its main studio to Dolby Atmos 7.4.1 HE with Dynaudio monitoring and UHD projection.
It has also added an acoustically treated two-person voice over studio with Neumann, Sennheiser and AKG microphones, which is connected to both of the mix studios.
Yives Reed, commercial director of Virtual Post, said: “As part of our recent root-and-branch review of all aspects of Virtual Post’s operation, it became clear that we needed to further enhance our audio capabilities, and expand into more challenging genres, including natural history and drama.
“This revamp and restructure is the result. We’ve hired some of the best audio talent in the business, we’ve added capacity to our facilities and we’ve invested in next-generation technology. In short, we’re all set to make a noise in post production audio.”
The company has also restructured its audio department, promoting Jon Gray to head of audio and hiring Andrew Wilson as senior re-recording engineer.
Gray and Wilson will be supported by dubbing mixers Pete Collins and Paul James, both of whom are experienced in all aspects of sound for TV and film.
