Our award-winning creative staff, state of the art technology and highly skilled engineering staff work together to meet the needs of a diverse range of clients in a campus-like setting in Burbank, CA.

The Walt Disney Studios Post Production Services has a rich history in Dubbing dating back to the early 1940's when Fantasia was mixed in the Main Theatre. Fantasia went on to win several technical achievement awards from the Academy as it was one of the first to mix in "Stereo" and it actually incorporated an early form of surround sound termed "Fantasound".
