Post Magazine Article on Blaine and PPS

Blaine w/Kirstie Ally
Blaine Stewart began his video and audio career when he moved from his native Los Angeles to Utah and  worked his way through college as a sound reinforcement mixer at Brigham Young University from 1975-1979.  While at the university he gained a variety of experience in many broad areas of audio production.  One day he'd be setting up sound in a 25,000 seat arena for a rock concert and that night he'd be mixing sound for a live theatrical performance.  While at the university he sound designed the SFX and mixed 500+ performances of over 25 plays staged by the school's drama department during his years there.  He also gained much experience recording classical, jazz, and rock for the university in their recording studios.  He set-up and ran mobile sound systems and huge "portable" sound reinforcement systems as well for many indoor and outdoor concerts.  While there he was introduced to and trained in acoustical and studio design.  He had the opportunity to wire a 16 track film scoring studio and later rebuild the audio system for a 25,000 seat arena at BYU.

As a communications and music student at the university Blaine studied music composition and arranging and photography and film production.  He gained skill as a conductor while learning to play over a dozen instruments.  For the past 30 years, Blaine has conducted various church and community choral groups.  While in school he also studied communications, acoustics, electronics, theater, and film.

After leaving the university in 1979, Blaine helped start the Osmond Studios in Orem, Utah.  He became the Audio Operations Supervisor.  He supervised and mixed audio for television and film (production and post-production) and music.  He had the opportunity to sound design and mix the first television production to the U.S.A. out of Red China and the first stereo program for the Disney Channel-The Velveteen Rabbit starring Marie Osmond.  He did the pre-production orchestral recordings for many television productions and then would go out to the 16,000 sq. ft. sound stage to mix the production audio.  Then, he'd follow through with the post-production sound design and mixing as well.  He was deeply involved with all aspects of audio production.  While there, he designed and built several 24/48 track studios for both television production and music recording.

In 1986, Blaine returned to the Los Angeles area and free-lanced for various post facilities including: Complete Post, Grace and Wild, Alta Video, AME, Inc., etc.  In 1989 he accepted a staff position at AME, Inc. in Burbank where his first assignment was to design and build two audio post-production studios.  The acoustics were designed by Jeff Cooper and Blaine and a crew wired the rooms.  The studios were state-of-the-art with SSL mixing consoles and Studer 24 track machines.  While there, Blaine established professional relationships with many of the clients he continues to work with to this day.

In 1989, he left AME to work for the new Fox Television Network.  In 1991, Blaine returned to AME (renamed All Post) to the rooms he built several years earlier.  In 1994, Blaine was offered a position at Framework Sound in Burbank.  It was there he made the jump to lightspeed by shifting from 24/48 track linear to 48K digital.  He quickly learned the Synclavier system.  While at Framework, he work with Synclavier Direct to Disk and then Audiovision.  Finally, when ProTools came along, he quickly learned that.

Near the end of 1999, Blaine began plans to open his own video/audio post-production studio in Burbank.  He talked to many of his clients, past and present  and forged ahead.  In May 2000, Blaine opened his own studios named Post Plus Sound.  Using his past experience at BYU, Osmonds, and AME, he designed and built the audio studios and edit bay at Post Plus Sound.


In 2010, Blaine moved his operation and Hollywood/Burbank clients to Murray, UT and reopened as The Stewdio, LLC.
