Canadore College’s new post-production facility will be the first college in Canada equipped with Dolby Atmos for re-recording mixing and playback.
Dolby Atmos is an award-winning technology that breathes life into storytelling by allowing the creative freedom to easily place and move sounds anywhere in the cinema, including overhead, to make audiences feel as if they are inside the movie.
“Combined with our new post-production program running this fall, the Dolby Atmos enabled studio will provide students with tools that give them the creative freedom to create mixes that are more immersive and life-like,” said Yura Monestime, associate dean of media, design and dramatic arts. “The unique blend of applied and experiential learning opportunities will enrich the entire learning process and is unique in Canada.”
The 2,500 square-foot facility will feature a specialized post-production theatre featuring Dolby Atmos sound mixing capabilities, recording, dialogue replacement, and studio grade color correction capabilities along with office space and a 24-seat computer lab. The studio will be used regularly in academic programming and is also available to industry for the final steps of film creation prior to production release.
