SNK AND RED APPLE BECOME FOREVER AUDIO
20 March 2023

Forever Audio is a new brand formed by the combination of award-winning audio post-production house, SNK Studios, and specialist audio agency, Red Apple Creative.

The creation of Forever Audio enables the company to combine services which were previously run separately at the company's London and New York offices.

The track records of SNK and Red Apple provides a great launching pad for Forever Audio to offer a powerful integrated service at their Tottenham Court Road HQ.

Forever inherits SNK's acclaimed reputation as one of the most highly respected providers of ADR in the UK. Over the past few years, their studios have hosted actors from high-profile series such as 'The Crown', 'Bridgerton', and 'Ghosts'. And they also worked on Denis Villeneuve's 'Dune', which won the Oscar for 'Achievement in Sound', as well as 'The Menu', which was nominated for two Golden Globe awards.


We felt it was time to lose the heritage names that we started our journey with back in 2005 and bring everything together under one overarching brand.

SNK have also contributed to a number of global ad campaigns, from Amazon and Adobe to Range Rover and Sky, delivering voice casting, voiceover recording, sound design and mixing for both TV and online projects.

The company's impressive base in Tottenham Court Road is home to eleven studios, including three ADR stages, and a Dolby Atmos suite. These are remarkable resources for a company that many in the advertising realm may not yet have come across, and they really ought to be on everyone's radar.

Company co-founder, Seb Juviler, says of the rebrand: “We’ve always worked really closely behind the scenes, with the studios sound designing and mixing everything that the creative teams write and produce. We felt it was time to lose the heritage names that we started our journey with back in 2005 and bring everything together under one overarching brand.”


The rebrand to Forever Audio is really designed to bring all of these amazing offerings together and give clients a clear understanding of everything we have to offer.

 ”

Red Apple Creative's key proposition, now incorporated into Forever Audio, is a creative team specialising in short-form advertising and long-form content. As a preferred creative partner of Spotify, they have worked on numerous global campaigns in a plethora of different languages.

They recently completed a world-first project for Audible which entailed adapting six books into fully immersive audio scripts and productions with an ensemble cast.

Co-founder Paul Golliker says: "There’s no business that offers the number of audio services that we do all under one roof. We’re completely unique and on a daily basis we’ll have studios recording voiceovers for animated series and feature films. Then we’ll be creating bespoke sound design and mixing TV ads, audio dramas, audiobooks and podcasts. We’ve got specialist composition teams creating sonic identities for brands, writing teams who are experts in audio short-form commercials and long-form content.

"And we have media planning and buying across all audio platforms, plus a digital team who are completely focussed on interactive digital experiences for audio platforms.

"That’s a lot to communicate when everything is under a different brand! So the rebrand to Forever Audio is really designed to bring all of these amazing offerings together and give clients a clear understanding of everything we have to offer.”


These are remarkable resources for a company that many in the advertising realm may not yet have come across, and they really ought to be on everyone's radar.
