Prime Focus Mumbai has recently completed the audio work on four prestigious projects: Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya Jodi Breakers and London Paris New York. Completing the audio mixing for these four movies was a challenging task as we had to finish all four films in a span of 40 – 45 days says Ajay Kumar chief sound mixing engineer at Prime Focus India. Each of these movies needed a different kind of treatment and approach which would excite the audiences and keep the excitement constant. This was possible because of Prime Focus's world-class sound facilities and an excellent team of dedicated talented sound engineers. Working on these movies was an altogether new experience as they were my first projects with these Film Directors. Understanding their brief and delivering the best in the allotted time was our main aim. 

 The audio industry has grown massively in the past few years. Kumar says When I started in this industry the sound format available was 35mm magnetic tapes (which can play six tracks twenty minutes of program) which then progressed to digital recorders like Akai and Hi8 tapes and then to digital workstations (Pro Tools). With the progression from 35mm mono sound track to Dolby SR Dolby Digital 5.1 6.1 and now 7.1 with digital formats and digital workstations one can see that the industry has evolved and grown to a great extent. Both London Paris New York and Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu used a location sound track and Prime Focus sound mixing engineers enhanced the sound tracks with a realistic sound treatment. Prime Focus has long experience of providing sound design and mixing services to some of the most prestigious projects such as The Dirty Picture Shor in the City Patiala House Tanu weds Manu Tees Maar Khan and many more. There used to be only 30-40 tracks to work on; today the tracks have increased 10 times says Kumar With trends changing rapidly in this field Prime Focus is all set to continue contributing world class sound mixing for feature films for many years to come.
