HOW IT ALL BEGAN
IT HAS BEEN ONE HELL OF A RIDE
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’.
A GIANT LEAP
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.
THE TASTE OF SUCCESS
‘Ranbhool’ was the first film worked upon while at the new setup. Slowly and steadily, the new setup gained momentum and numerous films, theatre productions, dance dramas, television productions and song albums became an important part of the story. A self produced film named ‘Paulwaat’ went on floors and during the post production stages, inspired the need of having a full post production setup in Pune. ‘Paulwaat’ was a major milestone and literally opened newer ways.
THE BIG MOVE
During the post production stages of ‘Paulwaat’, 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, Dawn felt the need to expand its activity towards providing a one-stop solution for the audio-visual needs of a filmmaker. Renaissance literally means rebirth. This led to a new Dawn.
BUILDING THE DREAM
With the support of many, we are proud to have the current setup. It has been an amazing ride so far, but we have a long way to go. 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.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Every story, they say, ends to start a new one. We hope to make every story memorable and every memory motivational. The positivity here, starts with every story we will ever be a part of. We promise you will be valued and your project will reach newer heights. We have started with newer ventures like the introduction of Dolby Atmos, Live Sound and an Institute to help budding artists and technicians.
