Formosa Group, which serves film, broadcast, commercial and interactive clients, will re-open the facility formerly known as POP Sound (Pacific Ocean Post). The Santa Monica-based facility closed on July 7 of this year.
“We are pleased to re-open this outstanding post-production sound facility,” said Formosa president/COO Robert C. Rosenthal. “With this addition, we will now have an expanded west side presence. It also enables the core clientele to continue their great work here with many of the accomplished creative artists and support staff formerly associated with POP.”
The former POP Sound features 10 mixing stages, eight voiceover booths and an ADR stage. The facility will be refurbished and rebranded for a launch this month, with some of the existing gear.
Rosenthal is reportedly in talks with several of the former POP artists and staff members to rejoin the facility under Formosa’s management; it’s estimated that approximately 10 will rejoin.
Formosa Group, based at The Lot in West Hollywood, also has a second West Hollywood location, along with West LA and Burbank locations.
