Our facilities are state-of-the-art because we know that reliable, high-quality tools are vital to the creative process.
That said, we understand that post-production is not simply about fancy rooms and expensive equipment… anyone can do that. It’s about service, support, solutions and teamwork – that’s the difference.

ADR & VOICE OVER
We have a number of studios capable of voice over, ADR and crowd recording. These rooms can all link to other studios worldwide via Source Connect and VoIP, and are managed by our team of experienced ADR mixers.
Halo currently have around 50 edit suites situated on Noel Street, Brewer Street and Dean Street. All of our air conditioned offline cutting rooms have the latest Avid technology, natural light, client PC, and complementary fast Wi-Fi connectivity, all supported by our in house tech and engineering staff. Halo’s Avid storage solution constitutes the backbone of our cutting rooms and offers the ability to work on the same project in multiple suites simultaneously no matter the size of the project – very helpful for those high-pressure, fast turnaround projects where the deadline can’t be moved.
At halo we understand you may need a break from the edit, so whether you want to have lunch on the sunny terrace, find a quiet space to make a call or have a meeting, we’ve got it covered. Noel Street and Brewer Street are equipped with their own mac workspaces, whilst Dean Street boasts a spacious sun terrace, large coffee bar and lounge area with 55-inch UHD TV with surround sound – ideal for TX parties.
Halo can offer a customised workflow that allows complete freedom for some of the creative team to work remotely and for some to be based in a facility environment. Therefore, if you have teams who want to work on the road or from home, alongside colleagues who want to base themselves at the post house, halo will have a solution for you.
