Serving the Hollywood creative community since 1952, Todd-AO provides creative post production sound services to producers of film and television, including sound supervision, sound editorial, sound design, ADR, Foley and Re-recording/Mixing.
Todd-AO was founded in 1953 as a joint venture of Michael Todd and the American Optical Company for the purpose of developing and distributing a large format presentation system incorporating a wide, curved screen with multi-channel sound.
The goal was to develop “a motion picture system that would photograph action in very wide angle … with one camera … on one strip of film … to be projected from a single machine … on a very large screen … with a quality so perfect that the audience will be part of the action, not just passive spectators.”
Over the years, the company increasingly focused on providing sound services, becoming a full-service post production sound company, servicing the film and television markets.
As Todd-AO evolved into a post production sound company it eventually became home to a number of industry legends, earning hundreds of notable nominations and awards from the Film and TV industries, including 51 Academy Award Nominations, winning on 22 occasions; 112 Emmy Award Nominations, winning on 41 occasions; and many BAFTA and CAS Nominations and Awards.
Credits include features films and TV shows such as: Game of Thrones, Django Unchained, Mad Men, Inglourious Basterds, The Bourne Ultimatum, Nikita, CSI: Miami, Entourage, Dreamgirls, Babel, Crash, Collateral, Family Guy, CSI: NY, Kill Bill, Chicago, The Pacific, John Adams, Black Hawk Down, The Sopranos, Law & Order, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, L.A. Confidential, Evita, Apollo 13, Braveheart, and many more.
