Last month we signed leases for two offices and have since been converting them into a mixing and Foley studio. The mixing studio will be equipped with a 5.1 surround sound system running Yamaha HS8s and a JBL 10" sub. The Foley studio is packed with shelving and props for Foley performance, a tv, and of course, a Foley stage.
Both studios are almost ready, but if you've ever browsed audio furniture you may have noticed how expensive some simple things are, like acoustic panels or speaker stands. Other pieces are just hard to find (and would probably be expensive), like Foley boxes, so we will be building those ourselves.
Our goal is to have functional studios by the end of March, which means we will start mixing our first feature film in April!
