Spectrum Films settles in with new team at Fox Studios

16 March, 2016 by Staff Writer

Spectrum Films has moved into its new home at Fox Studios after a raft of key appointments. 


The new site on the second floor of the Frank Hurley Building at Fox Studios Australia is now operational. 

With Adam Scott now a partner in the business working in tandem with Josh Pomeranz, Spectrum Films "3.0" offers refined technical services including edit suites, online picture finishing, colour grading and a custom built sound mixing theatre, as well as sound design, editing and post sound management.

The new post facility will be looked after by recently appointed post producer, Catherine Armstrong, and head of sound, Angus Robertson.

Armstrong, whose credits include Please Like Me, Tanna, Dance Academy, Underbelly and Paper giants: Magzine Wars, had previously worked at SoundFirm for almost two years as post producer.

Robertson's credits include Dead Calm, The Year My Voice Broke and Black Robe, as well as his more recent work as part of the 2016 Oscar winning sound team on Mad Max: Fury Road.

He has also worked on Truth, The Railway Man, Australia, Happy Feet, The Great Gatsby, The Sapphires, Lord of the Rings, Babe, The Adventures of Priscilla – Queen of the Desert and Little Fish.

It's the second time Spectrum, which was established in 1964 by Hans Pomeranz, has shifted its operations.

Spectrum moved from Willoughby to building 53 on the Fox lot when it opened in 1998.  

Spectrum managing director, Josh Pomeranz, said the company's rich history gives it the foundation to consistently strive to be ahead of the curve.

“We have designed this new creative hub to honour my father’s legacy of a community for filmmakers, whilst catering for the evolving needs of the industry both domestically and internationally,” he said.
