where-we-came-from Our facility was originally designed for Acme Spots, a spot production company, to be a comfortable home for our Southern California and East Coast clients and agencies. That's why we have more of a focus on the environment - with comfortable sofas, chairs, bar tables, desks and a conference room all with easy views of the editing process. Plus we offer the usual conveniences: sodas, snacks, espressos, cappuccinos, printers, and a very fast wireless.

Our Main Edit features a combination Avid Symphony for editorial with Autodesk Smoke for color, effects and compositing. That means effects and finishing are running on the same system for an unprecedented ease of transitions between tools, resulting in the best and most efficient post production experience.

  • Our Edit 2 is an Avid Media Composer for editorial rough cuts and simple finishing
  • Our ProTools audio room for sweetening and with a sound booth for voice over recordings
  • Every room connects to our machine room with 35TB RAID off line storage, D-5 and Digibeta recorders

It takes some talent to work the controls - we have Bob Gingg. Bob's extensive post production and finishing career began with early music videos and series work in Hollywood (Video Transitions). He then moved onto editing national spots in Santa Monica (Flipside) and San Fransisco (Varitel, Flipside, Retina). He's worked with many agencies including: DDB, FCB Worldwide, Goodby Silverstein and Partners, J. Walter Thompson, McCann Erickson, Hal Riney and Partners, Hoffman Lewis and Rapp Collins / BBDO to name a few.

Some of the clients that he's edited and finished spots for include: Taco Bell, Bank of America, Netflix, General Mills, Clorox, PineSol, Glad, Mattel, Old Spice, X Games, Yoplait, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, DirectTV, MLB, and 21st Century Insurance.
