We proudly present WOY23's first single "Can't Stop Me Now" from his upcoming debut album "We are not quite done yet". The single is currently available on Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and iTunes.
With honor we are announcing our newest member to the Studio Istanbul team. Sertac Toksöz, who already joined us in February 2015 as a Media Designer for Picture and Sound is currently starting his thesis in Mastering for Feature Film Sound. He is looking forward to receive his master degree in Sound Technologies from the Bahcesehir University later this year.
Since February Sertac did not only help us out with the daily news business editing, but conducted sound mixing and sound design for documentaries, voice over recordings for commercials and ADR sessions for international feature films. Furthermore he did short commercial clips shootings on his Panasonic GH4 and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema cameras.
In his free time Sertac is a keen referee at local table tennis tournaments in Istanbul and loves to talk and philosophize about the latest adventures in the cinema landscape. If you would like to get to know him better, just stop by for a Turkish coffee or two that he will gladly enjoy with you.
A couple of days ago we had the honor to host Mr. Gregory Johnson for an interview with Fresh Air's Dave Davies. In the interview Mr. Johnsen talks about the current crisis in Yemen. Read on for a link to the interview.
The Worldfest Filmfestival in Houston, Texas just awarded one of our edits with Platinum in the category "Background of a Single Current News Event". We thank everyone involved and are very proud to have been part of it. Read on to see the English version of the safety conditions of Turkish miners.
A couple of weeks ago we updated our flycam gear in order to get ready for spring season. Our new setup now allows a much smoother operation with greater stability and longer flight times than before. Stay tuned as our new demo reel is up next.
Lets take out the champagne and celebrate. Today, exactly one year ago we released Woy23's "The EP". If you still did not get your hands on it, now you have the chance to do it for just 2.99. Depending from which iTunes store you access the link it will be charged in EUR / USD / TL. Enjoy.
In the end of February we hosted Cicek Tahaoglu (Bianet), Zeynep Kandur (AKP) and Canan Arin (Turkish Women's Rights lawyer) in our sound booth for interview recordings with The Inquiry for the BBC World Service.
We just spend a couple of days trying to get Media Composer and Pro Tools to work with our Mojo DX. We had some issues with the AVID DX drivers and the online help from Avid was more confusing than helping. We wanted to quickly share the best approach with you.
With Media Composer 8 we can natively work with 4K material - but what if you are still using Media Composer 7 for all of your post production needs? Recently we had an offline edit with Alexa material (ProRes4444, progressive, 25fps). We are still running Media Composer 7 (it's a perfect match with a Pro Tools 11 co installation) and had to find a workaround. This is how it's done.
Studio Istanbul is a post production company based in Istanbul, Turkey. We love our business, but we also love to watch a good movie at home with the family. Our passions are art and film, pleasant sounds, nice venues and delicious meals - things that make us feel excited. We want to tell you about them, so it drove us to create this blog - to report and share the tiny but still important things in life.
