Kevin Brazier, the former managing director of dB Post, the audio post-production facility that closed at the end of last year, has joined St Anne's Post as its new head of sound editorial, working alongside dubbing mixer and head of audio David Old, writes Kevin Hilton.
With Old and his team of mixers concentrating on dubbing long-form drama and documentaries, Brazier will be responsible for building up a supporting and complementary editing and track-laying department. The intention is to offer a complete audio service, which itself can be part of an overall package of video editing and telecine.
Commenting on the new arrangement Old said: "My background is in drama but we also have dubbing mixers specialising in documentaries. Now Kevin is here we will be developing the track-laying side of things and doing that in-house rather than using freelancers, which is what was done before."
Brazier added that Old's reputation within the UK post-production industry is pulling in more drama work and that four of St Anne's five audio suites will concentrate solely on that market. He added: "My main task at the moment is to promote the track-laying operation with the attraction of David and his team doing the mixing. I hope it will be an attractive package."
