Halo Post Production has snapped up the premises and assets that previously formed Spirit Studios as part of a major expansion plan.
Spirit Studios appointed liquidators and was wound up in February. Its 5,000sq ft London premises has two large dubbing theatres with ADR and Foley recording areas.
Plans are underway to add a Digital Vision Nucoda grading suite and two switchable Final Cut Pro and Avid online suites, as well as new office space.
The new building will be used primarily for finishing commercials, drama and corporate work.
Existing Halo facilities in Great Portland Street and Chancery Lane will continue to house offline, online, audio and grading services for its core television work.
Company director Alan Jones said: “Halo’s business model was always based around growing a series of boutique facilities and this acquisition fits in with our plans. With the addition of online and grading, [the building] becomes a one-stop finishing boutique.”
The acquisition comes on the back of contract wins, including BBC science strand Horizon, a 20-part series for Talkback Thames and a 50-part series for 12 Yard.
