WE MAKE FILMS BETTER
WSM Press Release 11-03-14
Wildfire Studios and Sonic Magic today announced an agreement to form the “Wildfire Sonic Magic Group” – creating the premiere independent post- production facility in Los Angeles and bringing our clients the best of both worlds. Over the coming months, Sonic Magic will integrate their operations into Wildfire’s existing San Vicente Blvd location – a move that will include the creation of additional mixing stages.
“The two companies will continue to provide our full range of services to all of our clients whilst enjoying increased flexibility across the widest spectrum of budgets at the highest standards of quality.” said Chris David, President Wildfire Studios.
Sonic Magic will be integrating its proven AVID ISIS networking technology and adding its Avid Euphonix consoles alongside Wildfire’s existing Harrison mixing stages. “I’m thrilled that we will be able to work together to bring enhanced workflows and infrastructure to the world-class facility at Wildfire” said Jonathan Wales, CEO Sonic Magic Studios.
This partnership will create greatly expanded capabilities, including theatrical Dolby Atmos installations and additional mixing facilities coming early in 2015. The facility as a whole will continue to provide full-service Picture Editorial suites and equipment rentals, Digital Intermediates, Visual FX and Titles.
“I’m excited about joining forces with Sonic Magic” says Wildfire Senior VP Leslie Shatz. “We share many of the same clients and this will enable us to expand the range of services and platforms we can offer to them and others”.
