Hollywood, CA, Sept. 6, 2007 – SonicPool, one of Hollywood‘s leading post facilities, specializing in audio and video finishing, edit suite rentals, and full post-production services, has announced the company‘s most recent work in the areas of feature films, film trailers and film festivals. These projects include the company‘s work in the areas of providing editorial suites, mixing/sweetening and providing online services. The announcement was made by John Frost and Patrick Bird, co-founders/Supervising Sound Mixers, SonicPool.

SonicPool‘s latest feature film work includes:

Providing Full Editorial Suites:

“Bratz:” The feature film “Bratz” was edited in SonicPool‘s state of the art editing suites. The film‘s editor, Jeff Canavan, utilized two edit suites, utilizing SonicPool‘s fiber channel shared storage. Previously, Canavan had edited another indie film at SonicPool, entitled “Watching the Detectives,” and will soon be editing a third.

Sound Design and Mix for Feature Films:

“Lonely Street:” For this comedy/mystery/thriller, SonicPool will be providing sound design and mix. “Lonely Street” stars Jay Mohr, Robert Patrick, Joe Mantegna, Nikki Cox and Paul Rodriguez. The film tells the story of a private detective who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a tabloid reporter, after being hired to snoop on him by a mysterious celebrity. The client for this project was Patrick Newall, Chris Brinker, and Coni Fry of Lonely Street Productions.

“Midnight Clear”: For client Jenkins Entertainment, SonicPool will also be providing sound design and mix for “Midnight Clear.” The storyline: On Christmas Eve in the Arizona desert, a middle-aged man (Stephen Baldwin) and an old woman (K Callan) contemplate suicide. But through chance run-ins with strangers and perhaps some divine intervention, they cross paths and change each other’s life forever. Based on a story from best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins, this Christmas Special is a parable for today about how random acts of kindness can, unbeknownst to us all, have a life-altering impact on others.

Mixing/Onlining for Feature Film Trailers and TV Spots:

“Fierce People:” For client After Dark Films, SonicPool has provided mixing and on-lining for the feature film trailer and TV spots promoving “Fierce People.” That film starts Diane Lane, Donald Sutherland and Elizabeth Perkins.
