SIDE LA Massively Expands Game Dialogue Production Facility

By June 29, 2022 Industry News

Los Angeles, US: Award-winning game dialogue provider SIDE LA today opened their expanded production facility in the heart of Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles.

Recently celebrating its fifth anniversary, SIDE LA has been providing full dialogue management and VO services to game developers and publishers worldwide. In coordination with sister studios SIDE London and SIDE Shanghai, SIDE LA produces dialogue for major game releases, including LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Fortnite, Halo Infinite, Far Cry 6, Cyberpunk 2077, Returnal, and 2021’s Game of The Year winner, It Takes Two.

SIDE LA’s expansion more than doubles the studio’s capacity for dialogue production. This enables the team to facilitate even more projects while providing the high degree of expertise and game audio excellence that SIDE has become known for over the past 25 years. SIDE LA’s footprint prior to expansion was 3,000 sq. ft. across three studios; now, developers will have access to 7,400 sq. ft. and six studios in which to voice their visions.

Anthony Hales, Technical Director at SIDE Global, added: “The new spaces have been designed with identical specifications to maintain the revered ‘SIDE Sound’ and allow for seamless integration with the rest of our audio suites. Each studio is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and software, and of course we take every security precaution to keep developers’ IPs safe.”

SIDE LA is led by Jessica Kent, a 12-year veteran of game voiceover, having previously headed dialogue production at Riot Games. On how SIDE LA’s new space enables her team to better work with game developer clients, Jessica commented, “We are so thrilled to be able to offer more studio space to our devs and clients. This expansion doubles SIDE LA’s capacity to record simultaneously, has additional production space and features a secluded and spacious green room with private facilities, ideal for accommodating High Profile Talent.”  

SIDE LA’s expansion forms the latest in a series of exciting developments for SIDE, which includes winning the 2021 TIGA Award for Best Audio Services Supplier, partnering with mocap specialists The Imaginarium Studios, and producing the successful ‘In The Game For Ukraine’ fundraiser with IGN and the game industry’s biggest voice talents. Looking ahead, SIDE continues to develop their offerings for game developers worldwide, providing the same level of service, creativity, and passion, but on a greater scale.
