About Us

Welcome to Nightfall Studios, an award-winning post-production facility offering Creative Editorial, Visual Effects, Color Grading/Finishing Services, and Full Audio Post-Production catered to indie filmmakers and distributors.

Our in-house award-winning Editor/Colorist has over 20 years of experience finishing and delivering independent content for both theatrical screenings and television broadcast. We recently delivered the critically-acclaimed feature film DISPLACEMENT for a limited theatrical release as well as for world broadcast to A+E Networks/Lifetime , plus DVD and VOD platforms. We’ve also worked with and delivered content to media companies such as HBO, 20th Century Fox, SyFy Channel, Lakeshore Entertainment, CBS Films, Uncork’d Entertainment, All Channel Films, Oddyssey Motion Pictures, Cinema Epoch, and many more.

We offer full Audio Post-Production via our affiliate VirtualMix Sound Studios and award-winning Sound Designer Patrick Giraudi. Established since 1991, with a list of credits reaching 500 titles, our goal is to give your project a pristine audio soundtrack without the huge overhead associated with traditional Post-Production facilities. The studio features a 5.1 theatrical Pro Tools mixing stage as well as ADR and Foley stages, with more than 10Tb of custom and commercial Sound Effects libraries.

Plus our parent company Maderfilm is a full service motion picture production company, so together we can create content from development through delivery, all under one roof.

Check out samples of our work and let us know how we can help you with all of your post-production needs.
