Kill The Messenger Adopts Avid S5 Fusion

News Image
Post-production house Kill The Messenger has chosen the Avid S5 Fusion digital audio mixing console for its flagship Santa Monica facility to assist its audio production for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) matches.

Kill The Messenger will use the S5 Fusion for long-form episodic mixes for UFC events, as well as for independent producers and mixers. The company chose the S5 Fusion for its ability to accommodate immediate turnarounds and a variety of workflows. Kill The Messenger's workflow is based entirely on Avid systems, including Pro Tools® | HDX which, like the S5 Fusion, is now part of the Avid Artist Suite of content creation applications.
"As an industry, we always test the limits of production capabilities to deliver the most captivating and creative content in the fastest time possible, at the lowest cost," said Mike Sak, President of Kill The Messenger. "We needed an adaptable and powerful work surface that could satisfy the most discerning mixers, producers and sound supervisors. The S5 Fusion fits the bill perfectly.
"It's given us a powerful new tool to create and integrate into our daily workflow in ways we were completely unaware existed before. It also allows us to bring 'large stage' immersive technical capabilities to 'small screen' productions at a more modest price point."
"Audio facilities are under relentless pressure from clients to produce more and more projects with much faster turnaround times – and they are provided with lower budgets and fewer resources," said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president of worldwide field operations at Avid. "With the S5 Fusion, facilities like Kill The Messenger can expand into new markets and manage a variety of formats and deliverables with ease."
