Brand Partner

Periscope Studio
Periscope Post & Audio

Periscope is Unlock’s partner for all things game audio. When scope or timeline requires extra hands, Unlock goes to Periscope. With locations in downtown Chicago on the Cinespace lot as well as Los Angeles, Periscope regularly handles audio needs for major network and streaming shows for Fox, CBS, Netflix, Amazon, and Showtime. Series credits include Empire, The Unicorn, Work in Progress, The Chi, feature films like Kickboxer: Vengeance, POOH: The Derrick Rose Story, Come As You Are, and brand advertising for Honda, Pepsi, and Groupon.​

Unlock team members contribute music, sound design and implementation to Periscope when a project includes games or more advanced technologies to ensure the end experience is exactly what the client needs.​

Between Unlock and Periscope, there’s nothing we can’t handle.
