WARNER TO OPEN NEW SOUND FACILITY.

Byline: Jason Kandel Staff Writer

BURBANK - After three years' work, Warner Bros. announced Wednesday it is set this winter to open a new post-production sound facility at its Burbank studios, adding up to 70 jobs to the city's job base.

The $6 million, 52,000-square-foot building will include two re- recording stages, an Automated Dialogue Replacement stage, and 24 suites for sound mastering, editing and design.

``We are thrilled to be able to offer the industry a facility of this caliber,'' said Norm Barnett, the senior vice president for WB's post-production services, in a statement.

The announcement comes as California studios are trying desperately to lure the entertainment industry back as other states and Canada are attracting it.

The new building, inside Gate 4 at Hollywood Way and Olive Avenue, features the first major re-recording facility with automated digital mixing desks that offer a large range of choices for more detailed and subtle movie sounds, Warner Bros. said.

Each re-recording stage will include comforts such as a catering menu and an outdoor patio with a fireplace. Workers will also have access to a personal concierge service, the first of its kind in the industry, Warner Bros. said.

City officials hope the new project will lure more innovative industry representatives into Burbank.

``It's an excellent project,'' said Burbank Community Development Director Sue Georgino. ``We're very encouraged.''
