Nylon Studios has officially launched in Melbourne, with a new custom-built studio – a 2,800 square foot space, adjacent to coffee mecca, ST. Ali.
The new Nylon includes two new state-of-the-art post suites equipped with recording booths, with 5.1 and cinema sound capabilities as well as ample client and staff collaboration spaces.
Its current full-time staff includes executive producer, Ceri Davies; composer, Lydia Davies, head sound designer, Paul Le Couteur; sound designer, Ramsay Demarco; and producer, Alice Vanderwey.
The new studio expands and diversifies Nylon’s global network. The Melbourne studio is designed to share work across existing studios in New York and Sydney. The growth of Nylon’s cross-pacific offerings will continue to allow the studio to provide its clients with virtual around-the-clock creative services as well as a global roster of talent.
Nylon global executive producer, Hamish Macdonald, comes from Melbourne and felt it was essential to hire artists that were native to the local market. “With the addition of our Melbourne facility, we still aim for our studios to remain boutique and personal, while adding to a powerhouse network of collaborative talent,” he explained.
“We have a line-up of incredibly skilled and dedicated individuals that can facilitate any workload, and the strengths of the new Melbourne team will help to add fresh energy to our network as a whole.”
The custom-designed space was crafted to facilitate and nurture the talent that was assembled to launch the new studio. To support Paul Le Couteur’s expertise in working with actors to get dynamic performances, a spacious 200 sq. ft. booth was created for his use, as well as comfortable client areas. Further extensions are underway to build a customised composition suite to support the work of full time in-house composer, Lydia Davies, as well as visiting composers from other markets. The additions will increase the Melbourne scope to three post suites and one composition suite.
