NoiseFloor Ltd. added a fifth audio room to its River North studio in September.
Designed for sound editorial, SFX creation and sound design, the new facility marks the year’s second major expansion for the company, which introduced an AR/VR/360 studio in January.
“We were in need of more support in the sound creation area,” explains Jamie Vanadia, who, along with Cory Coken, is a NoiseFloor partner. “We are expanding into a few markets by the end of this year.”
Among the discoveries that Cory Coken and a team of sound designers from NoiseFloor made while preparing to build a new augmented reality / virtual reality (AR/VR) studio was, “there’s a lot of voodoo out there.”
“That’s the fun thing,” he adds. “VR is kinda like the wild wild west. Everybody’s got different ideas and theories. There’s probably a million non-productive work flows.”
NoiseFloor intends to tame this sonic new wild west inside a recently launched 24 by 18-foot inhouse studio that boasts 15-foot ceilings and walls of reclaimed wood.
Mixer/sound designers Corey Coken and Jamie Vanadia’s NoiseFloor audio post company is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the addition of its first outside rep stretching out into new markets and a record year of business.
BIG PARTY TONIGHT hosted by Corey Coken and Jamie Vanadia’s NoiseFloor to celebrate the opening night of the seventh consecutive year of CIMMfest, which, in association with city-sponsored Lake FX Summit + Expo, is our answer to SXSW.
NOISEFLOOR’S JAMIE VANADIA mixed sound for a 20-minute video about survivors of the 2005 Pakistan earthquakes, produced by StepFilms and Media of Washington, D.C. , a company dedicated to making media with a conscience.
The doc was directed by filmmaker Stephanie Foerster, producer of docs, TV series and web-based viral media, and a longtime Noisefloor collaborator and a Uof I alumna.
Noisefloor partner Cory Coken estimates the renovation underway at their new 4,000-sq. ft. studio at 308 W. Erie should be completed within two weeks.
Undaunted by advertising’s tough stretch, sound designer/mixer Jamie Vanadia feels “the timing is perfect” for the opening of his new audio post house, NoiseFloor.
“We can offer all the talent services of a big audio house but without the overhead costs,” he said of his move into Jim Olin’s long-established Rhythm Caf?’s consortium of music-makers at 62 W. Huron.
Apparently Vanadia’s strategy is working since he started with business in hand and future jobs on the books.
