Pip Studios expands with accessibility and transcription services

May 15, 2024

Pip Studios, part of Molinare Creative Group and leaders in audio localisation and accessibility for the film, TV and games industries, today announces its expansion into access and transcription services. The company has harnessed its unmatched expertise in localisation and content deliverables to expand its offering, ensuring content transcends borders and barriers, embracing audiences worldwide, with inclusion and accessibility at its core.  

The new services further bolster the post production eco system offered by the Molinare Creative Group. Productions will work hand in hand with the post-production teams at Molinare, seamlessly integrating with Pip Studios at the editorial stage all the way through to access services, QC and localisation. 

The access services, spearheaded by Pip Studios’ head of Client Services and Business Development, Shannon Sewell, sees the company leverage the team’s diverse perspective, bringing unparalleled expertise to every project. The new offering includes, closed captioning (CC) and audio description (AD), for theatrical, broadcast, online and corporate, with Pip Studios’ award-winning talent. The new services ensure every viewer, regardless of location, language or ableness can enjoy content at its optimum.

In addition to its access services, Pip Studios now offer pre and post edit transcription services, including AI and human pre edit transcription as well as standard, detailed and network specific as broadcast scripts. The new services were born out of Sewell’s previous experience in the sector, having identified a need from clients, requiring a seamless experience under one roof.

 Further to adding new services to its roster, the company has expanded its existing QC department. Following a growing demand for QC work, Pip Studios has invested in two new additional suites, boosting its QC capacity across to 10 new suites as well as availability within their 6 theatrical stages across all audio formats.

 The expansion of services cement Pip Studios’ diversification and global growth plans, alongside its commitment to leading the change in the industry.

 Sewell comments on the new services, “When I joined Pip Studios six months ago, it was my goal to harness all the talent we have in-house and apply this to a diverse set of new services. I couldn’t be prouder to announce our new services today, having teamed my experience in the access and transcription world with the incredible talent we have in the studio. In today’s global marketplace, it is essential for productions to create inclusive and accessible content, from regulatory compliance to social responsibility and I’m happy to say Pip is on that journey.”

Mark Sheffield, managing director, Pip Studios, adds, “When we started Pip Studios, we focused on becoming the very best audio localisation facility in the UK. As we develop and understand our customers’ needs, we will answer those needs with the same passion and dedication to the services that we are built on. Since joining us, Shannon has been a great asset, utilising her experience to diversify Pip’s services and identifying new revenue streams. Adding more strings to our bow only strengthens Pip’s proposition, creating an end-to-end, seamless workflow, as part of the Molinare Creative Group.”
