Sound postproduction company Formosa Group has completed the acquisition of Seattle-based postproduction house Clatter & Din, which will be rebranded as Formosa Interactive Seattle. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Formosa, a Streamland Media company, has a client base that encompasses features (Greyhound), series (Lovecraft Country), interactive (Call of Duty: WWII), music and commercials in eight locations in Los Angeles, including bases in Hollywood, Burbank and Santa Monica. The new Seattle location, Formosa's first outside of Southern California, will focus on interactive work under senior vp of Formosa Interactive Paul Lipson.
According to Formosa, the Clatter & Din team, including co-founder Peter Barnes, will remain with the company. Barnes assumes the title of director of operations for the Seattle operation.
“We are thrilled to provide regional support to our partners as we expand our award-winning pipelines and team of exceptional creative talent," said Lipson in a released statement.
