US TV network, ABC has chosen Real World Studios for the second season running to pre-record vocals for their hit TV show, Galavant. Galavant is a musical fairy-tale comedy television series which is being shot primarily in the west of England. It is is written by Dan Fogelman (Tangled, Cars), with music from Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act).
Director, Chris Koch (My Name is Earl, Scrubs, Malcolm in the Middle) had this to say about working at Real World:
“From top to bottom, working at Real World couldn’t have been a better experience. In spite of the fact that they’re this legendary studio, they somehow make you feel as comfortable as you’d feel in your own house.
The mix of old world surroundings and cutting edge technology sets a really cool vibe. The place has a real charm to it that somehow permeates the work you do.
Yeah you’re working, but Real World makes it feel more like a working vacation.”
The Big Room at Real World Studios has become the first facility in the Bristol and Bath area to be fully licensed by Dolby for film mixing. The Big Room has a reputation as one of the world’s leading music studios, and recent additions have brought film mixing to the portfolio. With a 7-metre screen, Christie projection and a bespoke monitoring system by Exigy the studio provides a genuine large-room film-mixing option in the West Country. With the majority of film and television projects being Pro Tools based a D-Control mixing console with Pro Tools HDX systems is the standard set-up.
Also available on site is one of the country’s largest (and quietest) foley stages, as well as the smaller Red Room studio which is ideal for film premixing and TV sound post. This room also offers ADR recording and Source-Connect options .
Real World also offers residential options and has on-site catering facilities for clients.
Disneynature’s “Monkey Kingdom” is the latest film project to pass through the facilities. All of the premixing took place in both the Red Room and the Big Room with foley done on-site in our Foley room.
