Dawn Studios has its roots in a proprietary firm – ‘Dawn Creations’, which started functioning in April 2007 in a small space of 400 sq. ft. Though small, the setup gained immense popularity amongst musicians and film and theatre personalities in Pune and Mumbai. However, being a setup in a residential premise, there were restrictions on the operating hours. In spite of this, Dawn Creations managed to work for many films and music projects including the Indian official Oscar entry ‘Harishchandrachi Factory’.
The increasing demand, however, forced Dawn Creations to move on to a bigger setup in a short time span of 2 years. A small bungalow in Karvenagar was now the new home for the new company ‘Dawn Studios Pvt. Ltd.’ In addition to a small and simple recording setup, we hosted a 5.1 premix room, a state-of-the-art music recording studio and a facility for video editing to cater to the needs of increasing production houses and advertising agencies in Pune and the rest of Maharashtra.
But still, for the final surround mixing, producers had to rush to Mumbai, as no setup in the rest of Maharashtra was competent enough to have been approved by Dolby. It is a well-known fact that Dolby is a final word as far as Film sound is concerned. And therefore, DSPL felt the need to expand its activity towards providing a one-stop solution for the audio-visual needs of a filmmaker.
Way back in the 1930’s, Prabhat Studios was started in Pune, which marked the beginning of a new era in Indian film history. Dawn is a synonym for Prabhat and we wish to follow the footsteps of our ancestors.
