We're well into 2011 now and the variety of sessions we handle is always continuing; we do wonder where it will end and what we will be asked of next! It seems the old-fashioned days of straight VO recording are behind us; Remote sessions via Skype/Telephone/ISDN, ADR with Quicktime/Digibeta and/or remote link up...
The latest series of Skins kicks off tonight on E4; we've been busy recording the ADR for the show for the past few months and as ever are excited at being involved in one of TV's most orignal shows.
2011 is looking to be an exciting year for us; we're currently freeing more space to be available as a client area so anyone attending a session has somewhere to sit and chat with their clients, and all while drinking some of the worlds best coffee they've picked up from theFernadez & Wells Espresso Bar next door.
Looking back on 2010, it's been a tough year for everyone but has bought us some memorable sessions. We, as ever, have continued to evolve with better remote directing facilities such as dial-in over mobile, skype, iChat, Source Connect, all running sessions from around the world. We have also given our Studio1 booth a makeover with improved acoustics and it can now easily accomodate upto 10 actors. We look forward to what 2011 brings...

Starting 12th October, Wheeler Dealers is back for a new series on The Discovery Channel. Trident has worked and polished the audio from VO record through to mix and delivery. Now in its seventh series Wheeler Dealers is still at the top of Discovery's schedule and while Mike and Edd are still turning around great car restorations it looks set to continue.
In recent weeks Trident has been lending a hand to some upcoming directors from the Metfilm School at Ealing Studios. Trident got involved with 2 productions, 'Love Story' by Tricia Dipre and 'By The River's Edge' by Garry Simpson, and undertook all sound design including ADR, Foley, FX and final mix.
Trident would like to welcome Gemini's Lance England into the studio for his Chuggington project for Disney.

Based in our Studio3 with Pro Tools, Lance will be re-recording all the cast throughout September and into October so choo-choo for him!
We're very proud of our rock 'n roll roots as a music studio; in the 60s & 70s recording the likes of The Beatles, Bowie and Queen. However sometimes the message that we are now purely an audio post facility gets lost, so that's why we've changed our web address to better reflect our business: tridentaudiopost.com.
Well not quite Boy George himself, but the actor playing him in the BBC's biopic Worried About The Boy; Douglas Booth. The show's ADR was recorded here at Trident across a week in early April and the show features lots of iconic characters who would have once crossed Trident's threshold as a music studio back in the 80's.
We see many types of bookings here at Trident; from 1hr sessions for recording single line scripts, to week long block bookings for film and TV ADR, but even we had to scratch our heads preparing for a recent job. Have a look at this photo of the session in action and see if you can guess what's going on (click on it for a larger version):
With Spring nearly upon us we bounce into series 7 of Wheeler Dealers for Discovery; another 10 x 1hr eps of narration and dubbing for us with Mike Brewer and Ed China getting their spanners out again, this time featuring a much anticipated Cosworth! With a few more TV series almost in the bag, we look forward to a productive time ahead. All your projects are important to us though no matter their size, so whether a VO for a 15 second promo or a 200 page e-learning script, we are always here ready to help you. If you think we can be of service on your current/upcoming project, then pleaseemail us with any questions you may have.
2010 started off with a bang for us with plenty of ADR; for TV, film and even computer games. For the new decade we've even changed our web/email address to make it more in keeping with our services -firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget though that whatever your needs in sound, the team here at Trident are best suited to help with a diverse experience in all things audio post - Voice Overs, ADR, mixing, sound design, sound processing...
Looking back on 2009, it's been a bumper Hollywood year for us here at Trident with highlights including: filming with Sir Paul McCartney, ISDN ADR links with Kate Hudson, voice-over recording with Kate Winslet, computer game narration with Tom Wilkinson, and all mixed around our other bookings of coporate/foreign language VO records and program mixes.
Here at Trident since 1993 our work in audio has been incredibly varied; good for us so we never get bored and always like a challenge, but even better for our clients as our experience in the field of audio is vast; from ADR to VO records (local, remote and self-produced), and from TV show dubs to multi-lingual flash presentations.
Welcome to our September newsletter! As one of the most established audio post studios in Soho, central London, we would like to keep you informed of what we do, what we've done, and hopefully be of help to you in an upcoming project.
