Heard City Goes Digital With New Office in Brooklyn DUMBO
Boutique audio post production company, Heard City, announced today that it will open a second office in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood. Heard City Brooklyn, which will service the advertising, motion picture and television industries, will include a lineup of mixers and producers.
Heard City founders, Philip Loeb, Keith Reynaud and Gloria Pitagorsky, all recognized the need to open a second office and have been searching for the perfect location in DUMBO.
“DUMBO is a digital creative hub, and our clients are playing in this space more than ever,” says Gloria Pitagorsky, Managing Director. “We’re thrilled to be a neighbor to all of the hottest digital agencies, start-ups and tech companies and want to add another layer of creativity to the mix.”
The new 4,000-square-foot space at 20 Jay St., which will be designed by Murdock Solon Architects, has unobstructed views of the Brooklyn Bridge. It will be similar in design to the Flatiron studio’s palette, featuring natural light-filled rooms, wood, metal and clean lines, all streamlined to create a very comfortable place to work. The space will consist of two mix rooms, a live room and music control room. Employees from the Manhattan and DUMBO offices will be free to work from both locations, furthering Heard City’s collaborative way of working. The office will officially open around Thanksgiving.
“Within our industry, the creative landscape is quickly expanding on both sides of the East River,” says Phil Loeb, Partner. “At Heard City, we are respecting this truth by being one of the first audio post production companies to have a full fledged set of studios in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Innovative and important work is being produced in DUMBO, and we are very excited to become a partner and resource for the neighborhood.”
Heard City was founded in 2012 and works with clients including AT&T, ESPN, IBM and Bud Light. The company has grown 50 percent since its inception.
