Benchmark Post founder Pedro Jimenez
Benchmark Post, a new and independent audio post-production company catering to film and television content creators, announces plans for opening its newly acquired Burbank facility, previously occupied by Todd-Soundelux, in fall 2015.
“We are thrilled to re-open the doors of one of the industry’s most iconic sound studios and look forward to welcoming fellow talent and clients with a new audio destination in the city of Burbank,” says Pedro Jimenez, re-recording mixer and founder of Benchmark Post. “Our state-of-the-art facility will offer a fresh and innovative approach to post production sound with an environment that supports the talent and enhances the creative process.”
Renovation plans for the 2901 West Alameda location include remodeling two mix stages, adding a third mix stage and converting the current 3,000-square-foot vault into client editorial suites, bringing the total space to nearly 20,000 square feet.
Benchmark Post will also implement industry-leading technology including Dolby ATMOS, Barco Auro, IMAX, 4K video projection with 3D capabilities and the latest AVID hardware and software, including dual operator System 5 mix consoles.
The facility will offer audio post services for feature films, television, documentaries, movie trailers and foreign markets, including Spanish-language Latin entertainment.
The development of Benchmark Post comes after the success of Jimenez’s company Benchmark Sound Services, a full-service audio facility specializing in theatrical trailer mixing and editorial for motion picture marketing, located on the Universal Studios lot.
Pedro Jimenez also serves as President and Founder of Benchmark Sound Services. Founded in 2008, Benchmark Sound Services is an audio facility specializing in theatrical trailer mixing and editorial for motion picture marketing. The company has worked on hundreds of trailer credits including Furious 7, Jurassic World and The Hunger Games.
