IDEAS Opens New VO / ADR / Foley / Insert Stage

IDEAS Opens New VO / ADR / Foley / Insert Stage

IDEAS announced the opening of its renovated ADR/Foley/Insert Stage today on the heels of opening its new post production audio mix room earlier this year. The rooms were constructed at the IDEAS Studio in downtown Orlando. The stage is capable of audio recording (Foley, ADR, VOs, etc.) as well as accommodating photo or small production shoots.

“The stage will allow us to do the voice over recording, ADR, and Foley we have done in the past with the added bonus that the new stage is also an insert stage,” commented John Lux, COO of IDEAS. “This enhancement, in addition to our new acoustically designed and built audio mix room, will allow us to continue the post audio work we have done in the past in addition to accommodating production and photo shoots. We did an ADR session for a feature film as well as numerous production shoots during the soft opening with great success and we’re looking forward to opening up the stage to everyone.”

The Stage includes multiple custom-built stationary and mobile acoustic panels, mobile Foley work services, a mobile 32″ LED monitor for ADR work, and a cove that is 30’ wide by 15’ tall with a curved corner. This is in addition to the post audio mix stage that houses a 32 fader DigiDesign ICON integrated console, custom designed speakers and subwoofers from Bag End and Panasonic 1080p projector with a 12’ screen.

“The IDEAS team has been doing great post production work for many years,” Jennifer Pennypacker, President, Film Florida, said. “To have them make the type of investment that they have says a lot about their commitment to the production and post production business and the Central Florida community and reaffirms their place as a top destination for post production work in the Southeast region.”

The award-winning team at IDEAS, lead by Sr. Audio Mixer Rob Hill, has been involved with thirteen movies in recent years including the Emmy® Award Nominated and Golden Globe® Winning miniseries Elvis (CBS), four movies for Lifetime, four movies in the Roxy Hunter franchise for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon, and three independent films in addition to numerous other network and cable broadcast and corporate projects.
