Widget Post Expands

POST FACILITY ADDS THE LOT 3/01/2006 7:00 AM Eastern

Widget Post Production has acquired the 37,000-square-foot audio post facility formerly occupied by Warner Bros. and Goldwyn Sound at The Lot in Hollywood, adding four fully equipped dubbing stages and more to Widget's full-service 10,000-square-foot facility in West Los Angeles. Also included in the deal are The Lot's ADR stage, Foley stage, a sound transfer department and a 130-seat screening room, as well as offices for rent by production companies working with Widget.

The Lot will remain operational throughout the transition, and there are plans to make several technical and aesthetic upgrades to the facility in the near future. The company intends to expand its staff and will be adding mixing teams and an ADR mixer.

“Taking over at The Lot is truly a dream come true,” said Brian Slack, founder of Widget. “When we opened Widget, we set out to create an atmosphere that was warm and inviting, and that offered top-quality technology and services. It is amazing that we have managed to achieve that goal — and take over one of the most prolific audio post facilities in the country in just five short years.”
