Wow and Flutter West--a music, sound design and audio post-production company in Santa Monica, Calif.--announced a company restructuring and expansion, along with details about its latest high-profile television projects.
According to founder Jerry Brunskill, Wow and Flutter West now comprises three distinct operating units: Gerald Brunskill Music (GBM,) which provides clients with original music composition, scoring and production; Wow and Flutter Post, which provides the audio post-production services to television and feature film clients; and Rellim Reeb Studios, which develops original content for film and television.
Additionally, the company, which is located in an 8,000-square-foot space, has opened Stage A, a 10,000-cubic-foot mixing theater for large-format film and television. Stage A is designed to service the rapidly expanding market for independent feature filmmakers, as well as mainstream film and television projects. The room features two-operator, dual Digidesign Pro Tools HD3 systems with dual integrated ICON consoles; a 5,500-watt THX-spec JBL Cinema Array system featuring QSC digital cinema amplifiers; a 17-foot diagonal Stewart film screen; an Eiki 6,000 lumen high-definition projection system; a Martinsound Multimax EX custom monitoring controller; Virtual VTR and Kona HD picture playback interfaces; and command seating for 15 to 30 people.
Stage A's system is capable of playing back upward of 400 tracks simultaneously and can accommodate all formats up to and including IMAX. The stage is also available for rental for private screenings.
GBM and Wow and Flutter Post have completed work on three television programs. For Desperate Housewives, the company was retained by ABC Television to produce a new take on The Kinks' classic "You Really Got Me" for a 60-second promo serving as the show’s season premiere teaser. Wow and Flutter produced the music in theatrical surround sound and in the HD format, marking the company's first HD project.
The company was again retained by ABC to provide the mix for the hour-long third season launch of Grey's Anatomy, again working in HD. Wow and Flutter's client for this project was Betsy Beers, executive producer of the show.
For the newly launched, first-run syndicated talk series The Rachel Ray Show, GBM and Wow and Flutter Post wrote and produced the program's theme music and its audio post for clients King World Television and Harpo Productions.
