Wild Woods Sound adopts Retouch™ for Survivor
8 February 2006
Following the worldwide launch of CEDAR Tools™, we are pleased to announce that audio services company Indian Hill Media Inc. has purchased Retouch™ for Pro Tools for installation at audio post-production facility Wild Woods Inc., where Terrance Dwyer, Chief Engineer/Supervising Sound Mixer uses it alongside his existing CEDAR DNS1000 Dialogue Noise Suppressor. Dwyer explains:
"CEDAR Retouch has the magical ability to reduce to a whisper screaming layers of insects that would diminish - sometimes demolish - the intelligibility of a scene. A very important tool when your projects are recorded in jungles around the world, its effectiveness is astounding and, combined with the CEDAR DNS1000, it is the only must have, can't-work-without sound tool that I've come across in twenty-five years of mixing."
Based in Los Angeles since 1995, Wild Woods is a leader in audio post-production for reality and documentary programming. Terrance Dwyer has provided Chief Engineer/Supervising Sound Mixer services to Wild Woods since 1997, and oversees the audio post-production at Wild Woods on the prime time series Fear Factor and eleven series of Survivor. He has received three Prime Time Emmy nominations and won a Prime Time Emmy - Outstanding Sound Mixing for the Survivor series.
