LOS ANGELES—SIM Group today announces its merger with
Tattersall Sound and Picture, a Toronto-based provider of sound editorial, ADR
and mixing services to film and television productions. The move extends SIM
Group’s reach into sound post production and advances its goal of providing
productions with end-to-end services from the camera to the screen.
“Tattersall is a wonderful,
award-winning sound facility with a talented staff and a great roster of film
and television clients,” said SIM Group President and CEO Rob Sim. “They are a
perfect complement to the other companies in our group. As a SIM Group company,
they will now have access to resources that will enable them to continue to
grow and reach a wider range of clients.”
Tattersall Sound and Picture
provides sound services for such television shows as Vikings (History), Penny
(Showtime), Reign (CBS),
Saving Hope (Bell Media), Rock Icons (VH1) and Ride or Wrong (Disney). It has provided
creative sound editing and mixing services on such recent films as Zoom, Hyena Road and Beeba Boys.

As part of SIM Group, Tattersall Sound and Picture will
continue to operate independently under its current name, management and staff.
 It will also work cooperatively as a key component of SIM’s Post
Production Division, alongside Bling Digital (production and
post-production workflow solutions), Chainsaw (editorial and
post-production finishing services) and Pixel Underground (editorial
conforming, color grading and graphics).   This will allow the
company to offer comprehensive post-production solutions that, when packaged
with other SIM Group companies, including SIM Digital (camera rentals)
and PS Production Services (grip and lighting rentals), results in an end-to-end
solution for television and motion pictures, unique in the industry.   
“Our clients benefit from this alliance through
streamlined service,” said Tattersall Sound and Picture founder Jane
Tattersall. “They can come to one team for all their sound and picture needs.”
Tattersall added that the
alliance will also help her company tap further into the U.S. market by
aligning with SIM Group facilities in Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta. “It
allows us to compete on par with the biggest players in sound,” she observed.
Tattersall Sound and Picture
co-founder Lou Solakofski, a re-recording mixer, noted that the two companies
have been exploring the possibilities of an alliance for several months. “We’ve
teamed up on quotes for several projects and every time there has been contact,
it’s been good,” he said. “We admire the way SIM works.” He added that several
SIM companies were founded, like Tattersall Sound and Picture, by
owner-operators and so they share a common culture that values excellence in
artistry and customer service.
Tattersall Sound and Picture
and SIM Group have been friendly colleagues for many years. “We share a common
culture of innovation, excellence and customer service,” Tattersall said. “Our
alliance with SIM ensures a stable and long-term future for our business, which
benefits our clients, our employees and the industry we serve.”
