Getting to know us

Stereoimage Studios is an all-rounded creative audio production house. Run by a team of passionate principals who are creative yet technically-knowledgeable, the firm has come to be known for its mindful and meaningful creativity, streamlined and organised management of projects, as well as its technical knowledge of audio requirements related to various platforms and genres.

Projects are led by a close-knit group comprising four principals: Michael Koh (Managing Director), Kenji Zhuang (Director of Audio Services — overseeing foley, sound design and audio post-production), August Lum (Director of Music Services) and Isaac Tong (sound designer, recordist and audio engineer).

Together, the firm has worked on a multitude of projects for over fifteen years in the fields of animation, live-action, theatre, concerts, site-specific projects, theme park attractions, corporate work, education and commercial music releases.

On the creative side, storytelling is very much a principle of its creative process, best exemplified by the musical scores and sound design work for films without dialogue. In the process of doing so, its creatives seek out a distinctive audio identity for every production it works on that complements its visual elements as well as cultural background. Yet this is done very mindfully and meaningful, adding value to the production without being irrelevant.

On the technical side, the firm provides a wide range of audio-related services: recordings (including Automated Dialogue Replacement), editing, mixing in both Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound. These may be packaged and tailored to a production’s needs, and all logistical and scheduling needs will be overseen.
