In 1992, AnEFX began as a small sound effects company but has grown into a state-of-the-art facility providing the highest quality sound package services for television, feature film and video game/web content producers.
Since silent movies began, producers and directors have been looking to improve the overall quality of their films. Filmmakers then realized they could control the sound of a picture through audio post-production, the process of creating a soundtrack for a visual program. In television, sound was originally heard live but evolved into videotape and film programming which increased the need for audio post production. Today, most feature films and television shows endure extensive audio post-production.
At AnEFX, clients are given the finest audio design supervision. The AnEFX team customizes, records and
tailors the sound to meet your specific needs. For almost 20 years, AnEFX has been delivering the best in audio post-production.

Welcome to AnEFX's virtual studio tour. Our state-of-the-art facility provides the highest quality sound services to projects throughout the Los Angeles area.
A natural sound is the audio taken from the actual source. Sometimes natural sound does not meet audience expectations because they are disappointed by the sound of reality and influenced by sound ideology.
Our sound designers help in the planning stages of film and television shows. We work with the director and post producer to shape the overall soundtrack of the film/show to manipulate the audio elements and create a desired mood.
The audio recorded on set needs to be properly mixed by a dialogue editor. At AnEFX, locating the proper take from the recorded audio, checking sync and eliminating extraneous noise so that the mixer can clean the dialogue is all crucial.
Foley supplies the film with subtle and everyday sounds that the microphone often misses. These background noises refer to anything from footsteps to doors closing to splashing in the pool that makes the film/show seem realistic.
ADR is the process of recording and replacing voices after the original shooting sequence. If the film is shot on a sound stage, the dialogue recorded will probably be used in the final film because there is usually no background influence.
