HOLLYWOOD —Post production sound company Todd-Soundelux (www.toddsoundelux.com) has reached an agreement to extend the lease term by 10 years for its Todd-AO West facility, located at Lantana in Santa Monica. Additionally, the lease adds new space adjacent to Todd-AO West, creating Soundelux West for the company’s sound editorial presence.
Todd-AO West consists of five mixing stages, one ADR stage, one Foley stage and a number of production offices and editorial rooms. The facility recently completed significant technical upgrades to its stages. Its recent film and TV credits include Iron Man 3, Last Vegas, Lone Survivor, Nashville, and HBO’s Girls.
“Todd-AO and Soundelux are both equally critical to our strategic plans to further enhance our position as the destination of choice for post production sound services,” says David F. Alfonso, owner of Todd-Soundelux. “Our extended and expanded presence in the Westside creative community signals a tangible and meaningful commitment to providing content creators with a strong, full-service creative and technical sound partner.”
Dennis Mahoney, a partner at Empire Investment Holdings, the parent company of Todd-Soundelux, along with Mark Robinson and Arlene Sommer of Cushman & Wakefield, led the company’s negotiations with building owner Jamestown. The new space will house some of the company’s most respected creative talent, including supervising sound editors Wylie Stateman and Peter Brown.
