London’s LipSync Post has invested in excess of £500,000 (€600,000) in new equipment, grading and infrastructure to expand its audio services for film and television. An Avid C|24 control surface with Pro Tools HDX software and a range of plug-ins and peripherals was also purchased for an additional 5.1 suite at its Wardour Street audio department. Paul Cotterell, LipSync’s senior re-recording mixer said, “We took our time with the spec for this room to make it as versatile as possible. It's a great pre-mixing area where we can start to prepare projects in detail - even those that are still being cut - then mix them directly in the Pro Tools and transfer the files straight into our DFC consoles. We are also installing Edicue software for ADR work, as well as dialogue editing and cleaning and sound design plugins, and it’s a perfect room for the constant feed of theatrical trailer work from LipSync Creative, our creative agency.” The facility has also purchased an Avid Artist Mix control surface and ancillary equipment in order to offer Foley services, offered at its Dean Street facility. The new room has already been used on several episodes of the sci-fi TV series The Sparticle Mystery and Uberto Pasolini’s forthcoming feature film Still Life. Lisa Jordan, facility director at LipSync Post said “Many Foley houses in and around London have closed and we thought it was a great shame that productions were having to go abroad, when they could spend their budget in the UK where we have such outstanding audio talent. We took the opportunity to fill a widening gap in the market and decided to invest in a Foley room that we can offer as an additional audio service.” www.lipsyncpost.co.uk
