Halo Post Production has taken possession of 25 Noel Street in Soho, London, in a move that is said to mark a key stage in the company’s ongoing development, reports David Davies.

Previously occupied by MPC and, more recently, Pepper Post Production, 25 Noel Street will help enable Halo’s expansion into film sound.

The studios were purchased with a comprehensive gear spec in place from the Pepper Post days, but Halo has already made a number of additions. There has been an upgrade to 7.1 and Encore2 software for the DFC console on the main film stage, while moving forward, Studio 3 is to become fully features/trailer/commercials-licensed, housing a 32-fader D-Control desk, HD projected image and 7.1 surround speaker system. Other studios will be updated for 5.1 work.

John Rogerson, CEO of Halo Post Production, commented: “The UK film industry desperately needs quality dubbing stages like Studio One at Noel Street, not just for mixing British films but also for continuing the historic relationship London has with the big Hollywood studios. This move represents a long held ambition to enter the film mixing market and we are committed to strengthening the entire facility through investment and better utilisation of the space. Noel Street offers an opportunity to grow our business in new and interesting areas and will further position us as central within the Soho TV and film post production arena.”

Established in 2004, Halo’s past projects have included Outnumbered for Hat Trick productions, Imagine and Horizon for BBC, and Great British Railway Journeys for Talkback Thames.
