Hackney-based audio post house, Fonic, has now opened its new Dolby ATMOS suite.
The studio, with the latest Protools software, the “best” outboard equipment and “impressive” PMC speakers, is now fully operational.
Founder and CEO Barnaby Templer said, “It is our ethos to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology. Storytelling and creativity also of course goes hand in hand! Our new studio offers clients a fully immersive sound experience that they haven’t heard before for their projects. We are providing Atmos content for features and broadcasters that includes Netflix, Amazon ITV and BBC. Which is all delivered to their industry standard specifications.”
Christopher Swaine senior dubbing mixer said, “The setup we have created here is a huge step forward. These upgrades create limitless possibilities when it comes to creating exciting and immersive content. Using the high channel count now available to us, we can take a huge number of elements in a mix and move each individual sound around in a 360-degree environment. But what has blown me away is the quality of the algorithms involved in the ATMOS re-renders. Taking an ATMOS mix and re-rendering it down to 5.1 has created impressive results. As a mixer, being able to spend time playing around with the system has been great fun. Learning how we can push the boundaries and hearing fresh new possibilities is what is most exciting and makes this job endlessly interesting”
