The new LA facility will work in close collaboration with Pivot’s Amsterdam studio to provide clients with around-the-clock service.

“Sound is so personal and tied to specific emotions and moments, so the most important thing for us is being able to work as closely as we can with clients to understand their vision,” says Amitai. “At Pivot our clients are partners in the process, and we aim to be completely accessible and build the intimacy it takes to produce the very best creative. We’ve already worked on many projects in the US and as we move forward as a company, it makes sense for us to finally establish a permanent physical presence here.”
