History

Sunrise Sound Services was founded on New Year's 1950 by Japanese-American sound designers Hideyoshi Kinoshita, Yuko Kinoshita and Kazumi Yoshida after their previous company, Kinoshita Sound, failed.

When the company first opened its doors for business, the staff consisted of the two Kinoshitas and Yoshida. Together, they answered phones, recorded sound effects and foley, mixed the shows, did all the transfers, and cleaned the studio. Hiring help was the only way to keep up with a steadily increasing workload.

Sunrise Sound Services' staff of sound designers and re-recording mixers have either won or been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound and Best Sound Editing every year since 1975.

Mixing stages, editorial services, and scoring stages are all located in a central 'Tech Building', with dining areas and living quarters in the vicinity but separate from the main work area.

In 1980, they recorded all the custom music of Carwardine Colony.
