Sound for Pictures Track Event TT6
Sunday, October 28, 1:00 pm — 3:00 pm (Tech Tours)
Technical Tour: TT6 - Polarity Post Production and Outpost Studios
Two powerhouses of postproduction under one roof; the proximity of Polarity (polaritypost.com) and Outpost (outpostfilm.com) makes this the premiere destination for post projects of any size.
A full service audio post house, with 5 studio's ranging from stereo to 5.1 and a Dolby Certified 5.1/7.1 mixing stage, Polarity represents the penultimate environment for creative sound design and mixing. Lead engineers Patrick Fitzgerald and Eduardo Mendoza have worked on projects for HBO, ABC, MTV, The Food Network, History Channel, Nat Geo, and the Disney Channel along with many national ad campaigns for SF's, and other national, ad agencies. Recent projects done at Polarity were "True Blood" (HBO) and the "Great Food Truck Race" (Food Network).
San Francisco veterans of sound design, music, Dolby mixing, voice-over/ADR, and Foley for feature films, TV, and gaming, Outpost has built a new Dolby 5.1/7.1 calibrated control room and mix stage. Supervising Sound Engineer Dave Nelson, one of the most sought-after sound designer/engineers in the industry, will lead the tour. Recent Outpost projects include the new Robert Redford feature “The Company You Keep,” and Kiefer Southerland’s “Touch” for Fox.
