Post house LipSync has appointed re-recording mixer, Sven Taits, to join its sound team.
Veteran re-recording mixer, Taits, joins the leading production house following a 20 year career working at Sound 24 and Warner Bros. De Lane Lea Studios, before going freelance.
Taits will join the sound team at LipSync Post from May reporting directly into Facility Director, Lisa Jordan.
Taits’ credits include ‘Bird Box’, ‘Adrift’, ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’, ‘Layer Cake’ ‘The Constant Gardner’ and ‘United 93’.
Over the last five years LipSync has invested over £4 million in new technology which includes a recent £650k overhaul of its two main audio mixing theatres, adding Dolby Atmos facilities and integrating different control surfaces. The rooms include a hybrid Frozen Fish Design mixing console, which integrates AMS Neve DFC 3D and Avid Pro Tools S6 control surfaces. The refresh of its audio suites enables the sound department to respond faster to recuts and edits.
Sven Taits said: “I’m very excited to join LipSync and their talented team. Having worked with them previously on a freelance basis, I know just how dedicated and passionate the sound team is about its craft, I can’t wait to get started.”
LipSync director Peter Hampden added: “We’re delighted to welcome the incredibly talented Sven to LipSync. It’s a challenging time for the creative industries with Brexit looming large and continuing to attract top talent such as Sven is a key priority for us.”
