MAY 13, 2010 – NEW YORK CITY, USA Post FactoryNY and Bang Music have announced a joint venture that will bring complete audio post production in-house to their 35,000 sq. ft. facility in Soho. The sound room installation, overseen by Bang, will make PFNY a comprehensive start-to-finish production powerhouse able to offer all-inclusive services to the film, television, videogame and commercial industries.
According to Alex Halpern, Founder and CEO of PFNY, the audio post component has already proven to be a compelling asset to many of the companyâ€™s clients. Within three days of sound check the new room was up and running, mixing and mastering House Hunters International, a 26-episode series produced by Leopard Films USA for HGTV.
â€œPost FactoryNY is thrilled to be collaborating with Bang Music to expand our package of services to the benefit of all of our clients,â€? asserts Halpern. â€œAfter many months of searching, we felt that Bang offered a culture and philosophy that was in keeping with Post FactoryNY’s. We look forward to a productive relationship that will fuel the growth of both companies.â€?
The idea to bring the two companies together was first introduced in the fall of 2009 when PFNYâ€™s Director of Business Development, Kim Spikes, met with Bang Producer Chris Peterson and Bang Partner Brian Jones at PFNYâ€™s headquarters. It became apparent then that Bangâ€™s audio credentials and supervision could fulfill a missing production link at PFNY, completing its full service post offerings with voice recording, mixing, original music and sound design.
Commenting on the new venture, Bang Founder and President Lyle Greenfield noted, â€œOur clients and colleagues in the television and advertising worlds are excited about this. Theyâ€™re well aware of Post FactoryNYâ€™s reputation in film and TV and think itâ€™s a great fit. We definitely agree.â€?
