Vaudeville Sound Group Opens Culver City Studio

Leading Immersive Sound Design Firm Expands West Coast Presence; Incorporates Full Dolby Atmos Capabilities

Vaudeville Sound Group, a leading global audio design, production, and post-production group, today announced that it has opened a world-class recording facility in Culver City, California, at 8500 Steller Drive, offering clients in film, TV, and digital projects with the capability to conduct immersive audio mixes for everything from episodic to commercial work to podcasts, video games, and augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) projects. Vaudeville has maintained a studio in Burbank, California for several years, which caters more to its line-up of film and TV clients, including Netflix, Hulu and Warner Bros. Discovery, among others.

        The 3,000 square foot studio space incorporates four rooms: a master control mixing and mastering space with full Dolby Atmos capabilities; a sweetening room, and two insert studios for ADR, voice-over, and podcasting. The natural light space – with a rear deck view of the Culver Stairs - is accompanied by a commodious common area and production space, which will be used for a variety of events, including a regular series of immersive audio salons, as well as live recording, and other industry gatherings for the burgeoning Culver City creative community. Annabelle Dunbar-Whittaker will act as executive producer for Vaudeville Culver City.

        “We have witnessed an explosion of talent pouring into Culver City in the past 5 years, and this has occurred as major industry players – including Apple TV and Amazon Studios – have opened large facilities within walking distance of our new studio,” said Mirko Vogel, Managing Partner and head of Immersive development Vaudeville Sound Canada. “When we launched our immersive audio division last year, we knew that Culver City would be a major part of our overall expansion, and this build-out has only increased our appetite for work in this amazing town.”

        Vaudeville Sound established a new department in 2020 that is focused entirely on developing and producing immersive audio. The company has pioneered the use of enhanced ambisonics and native 3D audio for TV and film and has broadened its capabilities for the creation, capture and design of natural and hyper realistic 3D sounds and for creating synthetic audio for a diverse client base. Key recent clients in the immersive audio space include Shutterstock, for which Vaudeville created the world’s largest immersive audio catalog, with more than 60,000 assets. Vaudeville also recently completed the full Atmos sound design, mix and master for Jamie Oliver’s ‘Billy and the Giant Adventure,’ the industry’s first-ever Dolby Atmos audiobook for Penguin Random House.

Vaudeville Sound has developed an industry-leading expertise in sound objects, which are speaker-agnostic 360 sound fields that contain all the spatially accurate information that a scene or object contains, giving the user the feeling of being physically present within the asset itself. 3D sound objects are completely interoperable between sound reproduction environments, including Dolby Atmos, 5.1, Aura 3D, IMAX, HOA as well as traditional Stereo and Binaural outputs.
