2iiZ-audio-room

People often ask about audio.  Many companies send out projects to get the audio done as an after thought. Most studios dont even offer the service at all. We have a Dolby Studio Certified editing room we use to design the audio from the start of your project and work through it to the end.  This helps us time animation, fx, foley, and dialogue early on rendering a much more dynamic look and feel to the project.
