06 Jun Studio Upgrade
Having recently worked with a number of corporate brands, including Audible, GoPro and Google, we have given our studio facilities a facelift to help accommodate the increase in demand. Investing in our business in order to better service our clients is the Stellar way, with this renovation including a change to both the interior design of the space and the technology within it.
The new space has been custom-designed by co-founder and board member, Helen Lynch. With a modern edge, the space nods to our Australian heritage, with commissioned artwork from a young Indigenous artist, Maawa Mumbulla. She has designed a gorgeous rug that incorporates her family heritage across the saltwater country of Gumbaynggirr and the freshwater country of Nooghaburra.
With Helen’s keen creative eye and background in interior design, there is no one better placed to fully bring the Stellar Studio brand to life. Working with Kenny Hickson from Newform Interiors, the space has been furnished in a stylish, practical manner. Hickson is greatly trusted by the team at Stellar, having supplied furniture for the studio for the past three decades.
“With the coming together of new equipment, new design and ergonomic furnishings, this will be a fantastic space for our clients to use in the production of world-class content,” said Brad Power, Creative Director at Stellar Studios. “It’s incredible to think back to our first small space on Regent Street, Sydney, operating in the analogue world, to see how far we’ve come.”
With the latest digital technology comes a greater capacity for more projects. “We’re installing the Avid S6 Pro Tools console, which has 5.1 surround mix capabilities,” said Senior Sound Designer & Mixer, Ryan Burrows. “Not only does this streamline workflow, it’s also a beauty on the eyes!”
The upgrade is across both of our sound studios. Studio A has been relocated into a larger room to accommodate sessions with multiple producers and directors. This room has the Avid S6 console with a Sony 75inch 4K screen and Focal SM9 speakers. Studio B has been refitted with the latest Mac mini alongside Artist Mix faders for smaller recording and mixing sessions.
With a range of exciting projects in the pipeline, it is the perfect time to give our facilities a small refurb in order to continue offering the best service possible.
