ADRENALINE Studios launches ADRENALINE Kids!

December 11 2023 London, United Kingdom

ADRENALINE Studios are pleased to announce the launch of their ground-breaking new facilities based in Fleet, Hampshire.

Designed and based around children talent, the three recording studios have been built to bring out the best in young performers, including bright interiors, screens at child-height and extensive break out and play areas. There are also areas in which parents can sit and watch their offspring create magic behind the microphone, while being connected to their own work at the same time with dedicated desk spaces.

ADRENALINE Kids is believed to be the very first studio facility of its type in the world and is aimed to revolutionise the dubbing and localisation industry with a focus on nurturing and training young actors from diverse backgrounds and cultures. In addition to localisation, the studio will also provide original voices for animations and can offer package deals in which all music, sound design and voices can be recorded to allow animation companies to quickly pitch new shows to distributors.

John Harley, Founder and CEO of ADRENALINE Studios explains, “In an era where representation and diversity are crucial, ADRENALINE Kids recognises the importance of giving young actors a platform to showcase their skills and amplify their voices. The studio believes that every child has the potential to shine and make a lasting impact in the entertainment industry”.

Emanuele Latina, operations director of the new ADRENALINE KIDS and father of four himself, has spent a lot of time talking to his own children and the talent he directs to find out what the children really want to see in the new studio environment. ‘’ Vending machines came up a lot he says as wells as gaming platforms, toys and arts and crafts. We have been able to fulfil these requests along with green space and a play area, I’m still working on the vending machine! It’s my belief that by creating an inclusive and supportive environment, ADRENALINE Kids will help nurture the talent that comes through its doors plus hone and pave the way for young actors to excel at their craft whilst having a lot of fun in the process” ADRENLAINE Kids is and always will be a ‘Happy Place’ to work.

The key highlights of ADRENALINE Kids’ approach are:

Nurturing a Diverse Talent Pool
ADRENALINE Kids actively seeks out young actors from various backgrounds and cultures, providing a platform for underrepresented voices to be heard. The studio is committed to celebrating diversity and ensuring that every child's unique talent is valued and embraced.

Comprehensive Training Programs
ADRENALINE Kids offers comprehensive training programs designed to develop the skills necessary for success in dubbing and localisation. With experienced instructors and state-of-the-art facilities, young actors receive guidance, enabling them to reach their full potential.

What the actors are saying about us!

January 19 2024 ADRENALINE Kids, Fleet

Happy Friday!

Going the distance

October 13 2023 ADRENALINE London

We love creating Audio Description, and it is true to say that, at ADRENALINE, we do a LOT of it.

As a fun Friday exercise, I decided to calculate just how much AD we had created since we began this service in late 2019, and was surprised to find that it totals a cool 778 hours.

Let's just put that into perspective. If you were to lay out the film-stock end-to-end from our London studios, it would stretch all the way to Edinburgh. Impressive, I think you'll agree.

And, since it's Friday, I shall raise a wee dram this evening to celebrate the incredible work of all our dedicated describers, narrators, audio engineers and, of course, our faithful clients who turn again and again to ADRENALINE, trusting us to do this particularly important job that gives access to entertainment to thousands of people daily.

Cheers! Read more

Then Barbara met Barbara!

February 25 2022 ADRENALINE Studios

Accessibility is a serious business, it's true. However, that doesn't mean it can't innovate also.

And that's exactly what ADRENALINE did when creating and recording the Audio Description for the movie, 'Then Barbara met Alan'.
Written by Jack Thorne and Genevieve Barr, It tells the true story of Barbara Lisicki and Alan Holdsworth, two disabled cabaret artists who met in the late Eighties and became the driving force behind Direct Action Network (DAN), whose protests pushed disability rights into the spotlight.

"In order to make the Audio Description even more special" explains John Harley, "I decided to try to reach out to Barbara Lisicki herself and pitch the idea that she could record the AD in our studios. Amazingly, she said yes, and the rest is history!"

One of the tenets of descriptive audio is that the sighted and unsighted audience should have important parts of the plot revealed to them at the same time and, as Barbara makes a cameo appearance in the movie, meeting her on-screen self, ADRENALINE were able to finely time the description so Barbara reveals it is her meeting herself and that it has actually been Barbara describing the movie all along.

Barbara had a great time recording the AD, and, true to form, added several 'cheeky' extras to the written lines, transforming this very British, anarchic slice of life into something even more relevant and fitting.

Also true to form, Barbara gave ADRENALINE constructive criticism about their disabled toilets, prompting a well overdue re-fit!

Check out this fantastic movie on Netflix.

The London-based Dubbing Specialist ADRENALINE Expands Into Africa

March 27 2022 ADRENALINE Studios

ADRENALINE Studios have expanded their operations, acquiring a studio complex in Cape Town, South Africa, bringing their already impressive offering of five studios to nine.  John Harley, Founder and CEO of ADRENALINE Studios commented,
“Given the incredible amount of content being produced for international consumption these days, especially by the streaming companies, we decided the time was ripe for us to expand into an international market and replicate the success our UK studios have enjoyed. Having, for a number of years, worked with this studio in Cape Town, we are delighted to have come to a purchase agreement.”

The company in question, Africa Audio Post who employ 23 people, all of whom will be retained, will be renamed ADRENALINE Africa and form part of ADRENALINE Studios. The decision to acquire studio facilities in Cape Town was made easier due to ADRENALINE’s parent company, Arnsbo Group, already owning studios in Pretoria that handle their burgeoning voiceover business under the banner of VoiceArchive.

Søren Arnsbo, Founder and Chairman of Arnsbo Group stated,
“Following a year of unprecedented growth for both ADRENALINE and Africa Audio Post, we are very excited to expand our dubbing operations in Africa. The language service provider division of Arnsbo Group, currently consisting of Voicearchive and ADRENALINE, is a global leading voice over and dubbing entity, and, since Africa is home to approximately one-third of the world’s languages, the presence of both companies in Africa is crucial to us.”

The team at Africa Audio Post are similarly excited for the future. Wayne Hirschson, who will remain CEO of the new company stated, “We are entering into a new phase of our development here in South Africa. The leverage provided by becoming part of ADRENALINE Studios will allow us to become an even greater force within the South African dubbing industry.” Harley added,
"Our commitment has always been to bring the content owner’s vision to life in a creative and, most important, an authentic way. The addition of our African studios gives us even more opportunities to work with more and more content owners, distributors and steamers alike. ADRENALINE Africa is officially open for business!”

The new company officially begins trading on May 1 and is already gearing up for the increased productions it will handle. It is also anticipated that the facility will expand the studio count throughout 2022 as there is further floor space within the facility that can be utilised.
