Insomnia Studios was established in 2015 partially due to the demand for a facility and a network that could compete in the international market of film and TV post production. We have been in partnership with Post City since 2016 and have addressed a wide variety of post-production demands that cater for the international Market as well as some local high end production. Since Cape Town has become a major film location for international features, it was observed that most of the post-production work would still leave the country to be serviced by various overseas facilities and professionals. We have brought a group of highly skilled and internationally acclaimed professionals together to form a team that can compete with international teams and facilities. While our main focus is on sound and music, we also have post production and workflow supervisors, facility managers, offline and online editors in our team as well as colorists, animators, VFX artists, conceptual artists as well as storyboard artists.

We take great pride in the fact that production quality and client satisfaction is our main priority. We aim to deliver all our projects on time and within budget, aiming to communicate effectively in the stormy landscape of film post production. We have a very effective online workflow management system that can track the progress of all aspects of the workflow effectively and accurately, in order to give credible feedback to the customer in terms of progress, milestones and many more deliverables on an ongoing basis.

Our World class facilities constitute of 3 studios, 2 in Johannesburg and 2 in Cape Town. All our facilities are linked and integrated via high-speed broadband in order to ensure coherence and smooth workflow for our distributed model. We also currently have the only Dolby certified Atmos Soundstage in Africa with a 46.4 surround system, delivering Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D, Dolby 7.1, Dolby 5.1 and Stereo mixes, as well as 2 recording facilities where live orchestras and bands can be recorded.

OUR SERVICE

We give you a great head start on the creative process.

Our job starts long before the film is shot, in some cases we start a dialogue and an exchange of ideas with the director long before pre-production. Geo Höhn leads a team of relating and networked composers to ensure the crafting of the perfect musical tone and genre for your feature.

We include discussions on sound design as well as either working with existing professionals and companies, or in-house sound contractors of Insomnia Studios.

SUITE OF THEMES IN PRE-PRODUCTION

We work closely with the director, often already in the final draft stages of the script, to develop thematic material for the film.

THEMATIC MATERIAL AVAILABLE AT TIME OF THE EDIT

At the time of the edit we can supply editors with existing compositions or mockups in order to avoid the over use of reference music. This greatly enhances the uniqueness of the musical landscape.

FRAME ACCURATE SCORING ON LOCKED PICTURE

We make sure that the score complements the pace and rhythm of the edit enhancing it in a seamless manner.

FINAL MIX

Depending on the genré and complexity of your feature our sound team can range from very small to enormous. We make sure that you have a sonic masterpiece. We create test DCP’s to reference your MIX in multiple theatre environments.
