Although Audio Rents in CA has a 2-day minimum. Plus, of course, you have to pay for shipping.

The two words I have to say are "meh" and "feh".

There are a buncha audio post facilities in New York. Like:

I'm going over much more detail about mixing for film at blog.pleasurefortheempire.com because it's such an incredibly exciting topic.
