Yellow Cab Studio C - Atmos

Yellow Cab Studio C - Atmos

Well boys and girls, here we go!
We are starting work on a new film mix stage, Studio C. It will be in our Aubervilliers facility, just North of Paris, where we opened our big Foley room (Studio D) back in 2014 (sh*t, time flies).
Here's the lowdown on the Studio:
- 500 cubic meters (17657 cubic ft) within the acoustic treatment (the inner shell is larger)
- Size within acoustic treatment: 7.8m/25.5ft (W) x 10.88m/36ft (screen to back wall) x 5.5/18ft (H)
- normal perforated screen with a 7m base (23ft)
- LCR speakers will be JBL 4675C
- 34 surround speakers

We just did the first phase of construction to prepare for the main act.

We needed to first build a wall for the outer shell of the Atmos studio, to create a new machine room between it and the Foley room. This will allow us to get the Foley room (Studio D) running again (downtime sure costs money) and have enough isolation that we wont be bothered by the construction work on the new room.

This is the space we'll be using. Yes, it's a mess.

Taking down the small machine room

Clement removing the gear from the 3-rack machine room. The new one will have 6 racks, and serve as an acoustical buffer between the Atmos room and the Foley room.

Studio D is stood down for the first phase of construction. Using it as storage for the gear from the machine room.

Always practical to get the WHOLE truck inside to unload...

Fast forward a bit. There's a new wall up at the back of the space, to separate the machine room (which will also serve as an acoustical buffer for the Foley room).
25 and 20mm high density plasterboard, with a layer of tar sheet between.

The opening in the middle is just for practical reasons while the workers build the projection booth floor.

Here you can see where the door to the Studio will be. I like to be able to see who is entering the mix room when I'm working. And it allows for a better sense of 'space' for clients when they see the console and raised dais behind it.

We changed the machine room door position, so as to allow for as much space as possible for the studio.

From the other side, you can see the HVAC for the Foley room:

Er....not sure I'm comfortable with this way of getting the machine room and projection booth AC units onto the roof....



Found a better solution: pop the skydome and lift it straight up to the roof.

Studio D (Foley) and Studio E (surround TV Mix) are getting powered up again, and the AC is being tested.
We will be adding 3 more racks for Studio C.

I didn't know that they wouldn't show up on a Mac. I'll try and repost them differently tomorrow.
