It’s getting harder and harder to find impressive facilities. Changing technology and expensive real estate has turned the beautifully equipped post house into a rare find. We’re happy to say that Polarity Post is one of those places, and it shows off very well, I mean like VERY well. Polarity is home to five beautifully equipped studios. With a variety of pro tool setups the various configurations give Polarity the ability to host any kind of project. From commercials to indie films Polarity has it all. With the addition last year of their Dolby Certified mix stage, which they built in conjunction with other local legend Dave Nelson of Outpost Film, they are one of the few houses offering 7.1 and 5.1 surround mixes. This room on it’s own makes Polarity a place worthy of a visit, and with the other rooms all we can say is wow.
This all didn’t come easy or overnight. Principals Roger Wiersema, and Senior Engineer Patrick Fitzgerald, who have a half century of experience between them, know what they are doing by now. Roger was Chief Engineer of the infamous Music Annex, one of the Bay Areas premier audio post houses. Over the years he honed his craft, building and designing recording studios, post-production studios and more. He put that knowledge to good use when he and Patrick founded Polarity Post back in 2003. They haven’t looked back since.
Some of the services that are offered at Polarity include:
Recording: Voice Over, ADR/ Looping, Foley Pits & Props
Sound Design: Custom Sound Design, SFX Libraries, Music Libraries Licensing
Mixing: For everything Under the Sun
Digital Patching: APT, Zephyr, EDNet Affiliate, Source Connect

Roger and Patrick have put together an impressive facility, which you should get to know. The work gets done with the latest and best equipment and a talented and creative staff, all housed in a beautiful well crafted, and insanely comfortable space. We didn’t have to look very hard to conclude that Polarity has remained a potent force in the local community, and should be on everyone’s short list. PHS says check them out and you are bound to be impressed.
