NEW YORK CITY — Sound Lounge (www.soundlounge.com) is expanding its Film + Television division, which provides sound editorial, ADR and mixing services for episodic television, features and documentaries. The studio is upgrading the division’s main mix stage to support editing and mixing in the immersive Dolby Atmos format. The studio has also added veteran supervising sound editor/designer/re-recording mixer Evan Benjamin to its team.

He has more than 130 credits, including work on documentary series for Netflix, Paramount Network, HBO and PBS.
According to Sound Lounge Film + Television division executive producer Rob Browning, the studio expects to begin mixing in Dolby Atmos by the beginning of next year.
