SNK Studios is one of London’s leading audio post companies, specialising in sound for commercials and longform dubbing.
We produce creative audio for TV, radio and digital platforms. Clients include major brands like Hasbro, Paddy Power and NBC Universal.
We’re a mix of arty, geeky, techy, creative types who deliver exceptional products for our clients every single day. We’re continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and we always celebrate our successes along the way… we love an excuse for a party!
In the last few years our team has doubled, doubled and then doubled again. We’ve extended our audio facility to 11 studios, including one of the few certified Dolby Atmos suites in central London. And we’ve opened an office in New York so we can expand our offering into new territories.
We're creative (standard). We're honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We're all equal and we laugh at ourselves… and each other.
We're unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers (meat, veggie and vegan).
We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We're people pleasers. We're all very different and we love that about our team.
We praise each other and recognise achievements. We like going to the pub.
We don't quit, we fix. We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed.
We like to dance. We say please and thank you. We're passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.
The Person We’re Looking For
Organisation and accuracy are in your DNA. You've probably got your own personal store of highlighters and post it notes, although you use more sophisticated online tools now. You’re very thorough, that goes without saying., and you’re a stickler for detail and you’re big on process, efficiency and keeping systems up to date.
You work off your own initiative but you’re not afraid to ask questions and learn from the team around you.
You’ll have worked in a similar role for the last couple of years so you’ll have an understanding of finance, and possibly the ad industry.
The finance department is a small, busy team that is looking for an executive to help with all aspects of the day to day processes within the department. The ideal candidate will have at least two year’s experience. The position is full time, but with an option of shorter days.

Kathleen Moroney, creative director at Red Apple Creative, shows how brands can enter the podcast space without disturbing the balance between podcaster and listener. Working across original content creation, writing, producing and consultation, Kathleen is constantly innovating what the audio space could look like.
Check out her recent interview with LBB about podcasting here.
"I've always been a fan of random music experiences, wherever they come from. Every Field Day festival I'd always end up spending a load of time watching artists like Omar Souleyman, Imarhan, Mbongwana Star, Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté and Ata Kak etc.
SNK Studios recently collaborated with creative experts LEAP, on the production of their latest Duracell UK TV Campaign.
To provide an insight into the production process from start to end, and to see how SNK were involved, here is the latest press release from LEAP’s Creative Director, Danny Coster:
LEAP are proud to have been selected as a production partner of choice for Grey London on the Duracell account for the past two years. So when Grey's creative team Nathan Holley and Paul Moran had the idea to create a piece of disruptive advertising, they turned to LEAP to see what was possible within a tight production timeline. Always up for a creative challenge, LEAP Creative Director Danny Coster paired up with Director Rob Toay to create the full film production and post of a 'pastiche' sports brand commercial for the Duracell Bunny to make a surprise appearance.
Shot at dawn in the Queen Elizabeth Park against the backdrop of the Olympic stadium and Aquatic Centre, the commercial needed to feel like a genuine sports brand advertisement. Trusted DOP Cliff Evans worked closely with Rob Toay and the visual effects team to film our actress performing her morning warm up routine and embarking on a run. As she rounds a corner, the animated Duracell Bunny unexpectedly enters the scene to challenge her to a race.
Working closely with Agency Producer Roger Lairisa and Grey’s other production partners including Mikros Studios in Paris, LEAP’s team co-ordinated the pre-production and blocking of theDuracell Bunny scenes. This ensured that everything on the director’s storyboard was achievable on the shoot day and enabled the combined live-action and CGI commercial to be completed in post production on time on budget.
The live-action, sports-style ad takes place after a fully CGI spot in which the Duracell Bunny races the less effective (and cheating) rabbit(s) through a perilous landscape. To bring the ads together with just the right blend of continuity and disruption, we arranged for the talented team at SNK Studios to add sound design and voiceovers.
Watch your commercial breaks closely for the disruptive Duracell Bunny, broadcasting now in the UK.
