Celebrating its 30th anniversary, theater sound design specialists Autograph Sound Recording (London) unlocked its new recording studio and post-production facility. Studio design consultant White Mark transformed, refitted and extended the original studio facility, which was built 12 years ago, to include an adjoining sound booth and a second room. Studio 2 is now available for recording and post projects, product demos or seminars. For the company's sound designers, the refit brings enhancements to scoring music and creating sound effects with an extensive online library, a 24-channel Pro Tools control surface and a 43-inch plasma display.
According to Autograph's managing director, Terry Jardine, “The in-house team with White Mark have designed a very classy, functional and inspirational space in which to work.” Company sound designer Simon Baker, who assisted in the redesign, founder Andrew Bruce and other personnel have been putting the studio through its paces on projects such as Jailhouse Rock and the upcoming Mary Poppins and The Lord of the Rings DVDs.
