LONDON Central London will soon have two giant, movie dubbing theatres and audio post spaces, thanks to a $10 million investment at Whitfield Street recording studios.
The 2,400 square foot ArtsMedia 1 and the 1,000 square foot ArtsMedia 2 facilities will be open for business by July.
Robin Millar, the producer of multi-platinum selling singer Sade, bought the five-storey Whitfield Street complex from Sony Music a year ago and is now aiming to capitalize on its proximity to Soho – the centre of the UK’s film and TV post production industry – to drive more business to the studios.
The studios have a 30-year history of serving Hollywood in orchestral sound staging through work on such movies as Rambo, Die Hard and Bridget Jones Diary.
Millar says: “Our clients have identified a strong need for a really large, sumptuous movie dubbing service within walking distance of the Soho hub. Our heritage assures that we are specialists in understanding and fulfilling the needs of the busy producer, director and mixer. This has never existed in central London before.”
