Things we're able to do

Voiceover Recording

We can help with every aspect of the voiceover recording process. From casting and script writing to directing voice talent in session, we'll make sure everything goes smoothly. Projects include TV and radio spots, web videos, video games, ADR, audio books, phone IVR and more.

Audio Post-Production

"Sweetening" is essential to the finished product. After recording, we'll make sure everything sounds perfect. EQ, compression, removing pops, cutting and pasting- it's all part of the process. Then add some sound effects and the perfect piece of music, and voila! Perfection.

Music Composition

Aside from being able to audition, choose and license music from a huge needledrop library, we can create a custom music composition to fit your project. Whether you need a chill music bed, a rockin' extreme sports theme or an upbeat jingle, we can do it.

Video Editing

Footage capture, editing, asset collection, motion graphics, audio sync and layback, color grading, and final render. We can even setup a full shoot on location or on a stage. Lights, camera, action!

Graphic Design

Say your company needs a fresh new logo; your band needs album artwork, your event needs a cool poster, you need help designing and setting up a website...we can do 'em all.

Consultation & Training

Contact us about home studio consultation and group and individual training sessions. Topics include studio setup, audio recording, editing and mixing, Pro Tools for dummies (and smarties), and voiceover technique.
