Windmill Lane Pictures has put a new management team at its Number 4 audio studios and is working on plans to expand its studio capacity next year.
Studio director Deborah Doherty and head of audio Mick Creedon will now front Number 4, which is Dublin’s largest audio studio complex which now spans two sides of Herbert Street in Dublin 2.
The latest addition to its team of over a dozen employees is Fionan Higgins, a sound mixer and features dialogue editor with over twenty years’ experience.
According to Deborah Doherty, to cope with additional demand Number 4 will soon be adding to its three studios in the main Windmill building with two re-designed and re-outfitted studios across the street, and a sixth opening in 2015.
Amongst the TV ads Number 4 has recently mixed include those for BMW, Toyota, Littlewoods, Fáilte Ireland, Mini, Bank of Ireland, Bord Bia, Club Orange, Heineken, Laya, Lidl, SuperValu, VHI, McDonald’s, EuroMillions, RSA and Electric Ireland.
Number 4 is also very active in the world of features and TV programming. RTÉ’s critically acclaimed thriller Love/Hate, which pulled in over 1m viewers last week, was mixed by IFTA award-winning Mark Henry and dialogue-edited by Fionan Higgins while The Guarantee was sound-edited by Morgan Carparelli and mixed by Richie Naughton.
