We specialize in sound editing for animated productions, having cut nearly 400 episodes of broadcast animation. Azimuth has been busy helping animated series come to life with imaginative and creative soundscapes. Working mostly on sound effects editorial, Azimuth Audio has also edited Dialog, Footsteps, Ambience and Music on animated series. These projects ranged in content from science fiction, shoot’em up space battles, to cutesy pixie-dust fairy adventures..... and everything in-between.
In addition to the Animation work, Azimuth has focused on Documentary projects as well. CTV’s flagship investigative journalism program W5 has featured sound editing (and mixing) by Timothy Muirhead since the 2004 season. That’s over 150 hours of programing, completed on time and exceeding the standards both the network, and their millions of viewers, have come to expect over the course of the show's 46 years on the air. That experience has been extended on dozens of documentary features and shorts as well.
Azimuth has expertise in cutting sound for features and movies of the week-recently completing work on the Christian Slater film Sacrifice. The Azimuth team also contributed towards the sound effects for the massively successful mobile video game Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. The game recently was nominated for best sound at the Canadian Video Game Awards, along with 10 other nominations.
Before starting Azimuth Audio in 2003 Timothy gained experience as an in-house sound editor at Spence-Thomas (Toronto) for 6 years and Bartmart (Ottawa) for 1 year. Timothy is a graduate of the Sheridan College Media Arts program.
Azimuth uses Protools and an extensive array of plug-ins as its main sound editing platform. Through years of field recording, Azimuth has built up a massive sound effects library of unique and powerful sounds all ready to use in your productions. Plus with a diverse collection of microphones and recorders, almost any sound can be captured and tailor fit to your production’s needs.
