Green Zone at Pepper Post

USP-equipped DFC Gemini helps upgraded facility win post production job.

Last summer, when sound re-recording for Green Zone was already well underway at De Lane Lea, London, a problem with an air conditioning duct in the next door building caused a major fire. Mercifully no-one was hurt, and the blaze didn’t spread into the post production facility. Power had to be disconnected, though, and work at De Lane Lea had to cease – for several months – while damage was assessed and refurbishment took place. And among the items affected were the DFC Gemini consoles, which had to be decommissioned and returned to AMS Neve’s factory for cleaning, checking and replacement of any smoke-damaged parts.

Life goes on, however. Other firms in the area – De Lane Lea is based in the heart of Soho’s post production community – rallied round to provide office facilities, and, of course, to help out with the workload. One such was Pepper Post, just round the corner and having recently undertaken a massive investment in its sound capabilities. This included upgrading the DFC Gemini in its main dubbing room with the super-powerful USP engine, giving it a radical increase in processing capacity. It duly played host to re-recording mixers Mike Prestwood Smith and Mark Taylor for the remainder of the post job.

The recording of John Powell’s score, meanwhile, went to plan, again in London. Gavin Greenaway conducted the London Sessions Orchestra at Air Lyndhurst, with Nick Wollage engineering on the Neve 88RS.
