Deluxe New York, a Deluxe Entertainment Services company, has opened a new sound mixing stage. This high-end space represents a significant expansion of the company's feature film post-production offerings in New York City.
Located in the 435 Hudson Street facility, the mixing facility features a fully outfitted stage for sound artists working on any size feature or TV project to come and work, the company says. The 18-seat theater includes an Avid ProTools Dual Icon board and full complement of inputs for additional drives and workstations, and an environment 32-feet long, 25-feet wide and 16-feet high with a 19-by-11-foot screen. Projection systems are the finest available for film and digital projection, and the room is capable of audio playback in every format, including 5.1 and 7.1; Dolby SR, Dolby Digital (SRD); DTS.
"Recently, we've seen a considerable increase in demand for major mixing stages in New York," said Deluxe New York's General Manager, Domenic Rom. "This luxurious space offers producers a chance to mix any kind of feature or television project. For the many productions also working at Deluxe NY for their color grading or editorial needs, this top-flight mixing stage in the same building is an extra convenience."
As soon as it opened as a mixing stage, the renowned Supervising Sound Editor and Re-recording Mixer Craig Henighan (Black Swan, Snow White and the Huntsman) and his team christened the space for some work they were doing on a major studio feature slated for release next year. "The technical setup was completely familiar and the room sounds very good," Henighan said. "We were in there as soon as the paint was dry and we could do our work exactly as we would at any top-level mixing stage."
"This theater is one of the best and most advanced in the city, and the very best in the downtown area," noted David Feldman, director of sales for (sister company) Company 3, NY. "The mixing stage is a great new option for all feature productions interested in posting in New York."
In the beginning, there was film. Images captured on light-sensitive material that could be shared among many viewers. Later came magnetic material called “videotape” and it was good for many things. Then a revolution! The computer and digital charged onto the field.Read more...
The western states, as a whole, are filled with more scenery than people. There are, of course, pockets of population that skew that logic – Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, and a few other cities – and they tend to be very urban areas, filled with views that can be found in cities east or west, But the grandeur of the land away from the cities is what attracts film makers from all over the world.Read more...
In the western United States, studios and soundstages often come with a distinguished Hollywood heritage. In Santa Fe, N.M., Garson Studios was founded by an Academy Award-winning actress. In Hollywood, Fox Studios carries the cachet of one of the legendary major studios. Moving north, the stages of San Rafael, Calif.’s 32TEN Studios once hosted Lucasfilm blockbusters, while the new Reno Tahoe Studios in Nevada seeks to establish its own heritage as production incentives promise to attract film and TV business to the state.Read more...

A blue sky sprawls between ridges frosted in deep evergreen, framing Alder Gulch much as when Native American tribes traversed this landscape 800 years ago. The town of Virginia City sprang up virtually overnight in the summer of 1863; within one year, it was the largest city in the Inland Northwest, with an estimated 10,000 residents. These days, few people continue seeking gold in Alder Gulch. But for filmmakers seeking ready-made Old West locations, the towns of Virginia City and Nevada City offer one more chance to strike it rich.
