Where are you from and what do you do?

So, I've gotten to know quite a few of you at this point, and I know where a good few of you work from. Luckily I've been able to meet up with a few people for lunches and all. Every time I'm glad I met the person.

So, in order to continue building this network, I propose we map out where everyone is from and what you do. Sort of like our own little sound professional directory.

I'm a sound recordist and sound editor, and I live in Orlando, Florida.

Colin, it was found on another topic I originally created that it makes more sense to ask these community questions on behalf of the community wiki as it is after all a common subject we are all equally interested in, as opposed to more targeted questions we regularly post on this board.

I live in Falls Church, VA (DC metro area), and work at an independent production/distribution company.

My job is kind of cool in that I get to be a jack of all trades as far as audio goes: location and acquisition, and everything associated with post of course. Lately it's been a lot of short stuff for corporate clients and fixing other peoples' programs which aren't in any sort of broadcast spec. But we're gearing up for a new non-fiction series which I'm just itching to start.

I'm from France, but I left when I was 17. Lived in a bunch of countries and at the moment I'm based in South Africa. I'm aiming to get to NYC where my girlfriend lives.

Most of my paid work is for recording and editing sound effects for features and commercials. I also do some sound design, mixing, location recording, programming and lecturing... basically I do a bit of everything. If someone phones me up and I can do the job and I have time, then I do it. I really do enjoy all aspects of sound!

What would be awesome is if I could create interactive media all the time! I would love to do more of is create art installations, and use Max/MSP and Arduinos and general physical computing. I really enjoy programming and geeking out. This is the kind of stuff I really enjoy! I'm thinking to do a Ph.D so I can delve deep into all this.

@ianjpalmer haha! It's weird, cause I usually hate academia, but I love being in an environment where I can research my own interests and develop my own specialties independently from the pressure of earning money. It's an awesome space to experiment and be encouraged to do so. However, I'm much more interested in the technology side of all this then concepts and theories... I'm looking for a place where the projects have more value than the thesis. And where grammar is less important than the outcome! – Andrew Spitz – 2010-07-22T09:07:57.517

@Justin which country? France? My family is there so I do visit every now and then. Depends how far I am. When I was doing my Masters in Edinburgh, I would visit quite often. I see you spent 3 years in Edinburgh, was that at the University of Edinburgh? – Andrew Spitz – 2010-07-22T09:10:22.257

@Andrew I have to say I love both worlds. However, the MA I did had a particular ethos that I really like. Theory imforms practice and practice informs theory. The two are in a symbiotic relationship and shouldn't be treated otherwise. – ianjpalmer – 2010-07-22T14:29:39.387

I'd love to work in the sound post crew on french films. From the films i've seen, the soundscapes are so textured (even though i hate using that word) and detailed. But my french c'est pas bien... – Roger Middenway – 2010-07-21T22:47:03.013

Ha ha, I just went to the cinema 5 hours ago to see a French movie. It was also the first time I went alone, and I paid so much more attention to the details than when I'm accompanied... But then I hate it that I only get to see silly French overdubs of 98% of the movies on Earth... – Justin Huss – 2010-07-21T22:56:25.803

1Ahhh yes. One of the french voice artists i work with told me that they record their dubs in a strange way: the words come up on screen and are stretched to represent how fast/slow they're delivered, and you have to hit them when the moving line hits them... a lot like karaoke. Which is just crazy, because then the actor is too worried about hitting the words at the right time to deliver a good performance! – Roger Middenway – 2010-07-21T23:41:26.513

See, I saw that on TV a while ago, I didn't even imagine it would be the French standard way of working... well, at least we're left with some good French movies when they do get made! – Justin Huss – 2010-07-22T08:49:03.517

If my E3 change of status is approved; sound editor and recording engineer in NYC. Mainly foreign language dubs for obscure tv shows, plus whatever indie shorts and features i can get my hands on.

If not; freelance sound assistant/editor and audio assistant in Sydney, which would involve chasing the big boys for some work and probably calling up my friends at Channel 9 and asking for some shifts.

My day job is as an A/V technology specialist - I deal with corporate and live A/V systems with a focus on video conferencing/streaming technology and control interface programming. I do a some video and audio editing for the corporations that employ me. I also freelance as a FOH or M1 mixer in local venues when I get the chance.

During the nights, weekends, and every spare moment I do work as a dialog editor and sound designer for primarily independent films. My wife and I also team up to work as production sound recordists with me at the controls and her on the boom. We also write and produce when we have time in between sound-related work.

I am relatively new to film sound and it's been an awesome learning process. Thanks to resources like these, I'm constantly expanding my understanding... thanks, you guys and gals!

Hello - I'm from the Netherlands, living/working in the south of England (Brighton). I mainly do sound effects design for video games (usually iPhone, PSN/Xbox Live kind of games, so fairly small scale stuff so far). I'm freelance, working from home - I love that! Occasionally I also produce music + sound effects for promo videos. Most likely I'll be working on my first feature film this winter (doing sound design), so that's an exciting prospect.

Because of all the great blogs and sites like this, I've over the last few months become extremely interested and enthusiastic about location recording, so I'm doing more and more of that these days, trying to integrate it with my daily work routine.

80% of my work time is split between dialogue editing and mixing, film or tv series, as a freelance in Rome, Italy.

20% is soundfx editing/design, I love it... and try to make this my first job

I am a freelance sound designer/editor/mixer for film and video games currently in Columbus, Ohio.

I am also a member of a theatre company here, as an actor, but when our sound guy can't do a project I will sometimes pick it up (mixing a musical next month for example).

Most of my clients are in a different state.

(Currently working on a high profile independent video game, a AAA video game, and a full length independent film.)

Hi there!

René Coronado - lead sound designer at Dallas Audio Post Group

I came here straight out of school in Dec of 1999, and have grown up with the company. I love living and working in Dallas because its a great sports town (we work with the Stars, Mavs, and Rangers - working on the Cowboys), a good production town, and your money goes a long way here compared to other places.

60% of our work is from out of town, with big chunks coming from DC and LA. I've personally cut ADR for Cats and Dogs 2 that's coming out, The Last Airbender, and of course we do all of the ADR for the network shows that are being shot in town (including The Good Guys, Midland, etc). We also recorded both George and Laura Bush's upcoming audio books for Random House, so business is good!

We're a right to work state, so no unions here - which means that I have to triple count my blessings with regards to the company I work with. The founder, Roy Machado really lives up to his promises to keep us engineer folk the best equipped and best paid in the region. We're also set up like a law firm, so after x number of years engineers become vested partners in the company. We're always consulted on gear and procedures, and its rare that a need doesn't get filled.

I'm not a musician, but Roy and Brad are and they are some of the best.

On the side, I shoot video and timelapses with my Canon 7d, and I always have my Sony PCMD50 on me to record the world around me.

I currently sell fx on a few different sites but I'm hoping to create a site along the same lines as Chuck Russom & Tim Prebble in the future.

I am in Virginia Beach, Virginia working in the field of Audio for a major Television company. I do audio post work when I am not doing live shows. I have developed into a all around audio engineer through the years and I have been very blessed to do a lot and learn a ton. I truly love what I do and could not imagine doing anything else. Not sure where it will take me from here but I am always open to things. BTW this is an awesome site and I am very glad I found it.

I enjoy all aspects of sound related work, but the creative soundtrack design for moving images seems more fascinating at the moment. This is a nice community - keep it up!

Hey, My name is James Bretz and I'm from Bellingham, Washington. Started my own company, Auddity Sound, when a friend asked me to do the post sound on his film about a year ago. So now I do free lance sound design, production sound, post production, and still try to record and mix bands when I can and sprinkle in a live recording here and there. It's not full time yet... but soon.

I live and work in NYC. I'm been working in Radio for 10+ years and have dabbled a bit in post and game sound as of late. I've been on the content and technical side of radio production, mostly working for NPR shows in the US. During that time I've also been a recording nut.

I also run this SFX company: http://rabbitearsaudio.com and this Blog: http://sepulchra.com/blog/

My background is in Industrial Design, with a master towards sound design.

Besides some music and sound stuff for various small projects, I haven't achieved much yet, I am very much a newbie. So I eagerly soak up all the knowledge and expertise that is shared in this community!

I'm in Winnipeg, Canada. I've had a lifelong fascination with sound, and have been messing with synths, samplers, and DAWs for the last 15+ years. I only recently started investigating the world of proper sound design (i.e. outside of making sounds with a focus on music) and field recording, and I am completely hooked!

I recently helped a friend out by making a few sounds for a really cool game project and I am very hungry for more work like it. I currently work as a software developer, but my ultimate goal is to somehow make a living working with sound because it's my true passion in life.

This site and its contributors have been an essential part of my learning experience, so thanks very much to all of you for sharing so much useful information.

Alreet!

I am currently Lead Sound Designer at Radium Audio in London. I mostly do broadcast, digital and branding but we're getting into live installations these days as well.

Started out playing the drums and wanting to be a rockstar! Eventually that wore off and I fell in love with sound design instead, which seems to be working out so far.

I'm new to this site, and loving it. Really nice interface and I can see myself going a bit Pokemon for the badges. Good to see such a diverse mix of people on here as well :)

I am a budding sound designer based in Launceston, Tasmania (Australia).

My day job is varied as I run a new media company. I produced podcasts, consult on new media/trans-media. Lecture sometime for AFTRS and other places. I have worked on feature films and shorts as either sound technical assistant or sound recordist. Occasionally I also produce projects (video games, short films, radio). Basically I am a jack of all trades, but love sound.

Started working in sound about 15 years ago but always mixed it with my other passion of technology. My main claim to fame is producing one of the longest running pop culture podcasts in the world, (Cool) Shite on the Tube (don't listen if you are afraid of some naughty language and un-PC commentary). I am also the technical director of Supanova Pop Culture Expo (the Comic-con of Australia).

Loving this site. Heaps of great information and people. You all rock!

I wish I'd known about this site much sooner. I'm a freelance location sound mixer/boom operator/sound utility for film and television based in Albuquerque, NM. I used to edit radio for a number of years and work out of my home production suite before I met a great sound mixer (and great friend) David Brownlow, who helped me get involved with film.

I'm originally from NYC, born and raised in the bronx and moved to Brooklyn right after high school, plus lived in Florida for a short time years back. I fell in love with sound as a kid through music, and I think I love sound more than music today. I've been fortunate to work on a few great films, TV shows, and some Docs with great people and learn great things. This site is my new great place to listen and learn. Thanks for making this possible.

Hi all,

I'm a born and bred Johannesburger, in South Africa and I work as a location sound recordist, whilst playing about with animation on the side!

I've worked feature films as a boom operator and also worked as a sound mixer on one low budget feature. Mostly though, I do commercial shoots, documentary shoots and corporate shoots. I'm keen on learning to do final mixing and foley recording and building up my sound library!

This site is great, I find it much more user friendly in comparison to many other forum sites and the knowledge I have gleaned in the last few days of browsing the site has been great!

Thanks for everyones inputs!

I'm also a sound recording artist, and progressing in that field, making "cinema for the ear" multi channel recordings and installations. My piece 'Airtight Orange Plastic Coffin' will be presented in a completely dark cinema environment at the Walter Reade Theater / Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City next April as part of 'Unsound', a festival of experimental music and sound art. If any of you New Yorkers are interested, let me know and I'll give you more details.

Hi all! I'm a sound editor and re-recording mixer in Sweden.

I spend my time pretty evenly divided between film and Tv, editing and mixing. I also work with a great composer doing the score music mixes for the features he works with. When i'm not sound geeking or recording weird sounds I love the odd moment of silence and of course I'm also a long time sail bum.

Sound editor/designer in Hollywood California.

Started cutting on film using a Moviola when as a sound editor you had to know how to do it all. Dialogue editing, sound FX, Foley, ADR, backgrounds etc. It gave you the broad view and an understanding of how everything worked together. A great way to learn.

Worked non-union at first the way you did back then. It was a huge deal to get in the Union. Very excited when I got in. The MPSE was actually kinda difficult to get in back then too. Now ... not so much.

Work pretty much exclusively on feature films.

Hey All,

Great question (and site) @Andrew! I live and work in Toronto, Canada as an sonic gun for hire. I get to wear a ton of hats from SFX supervisor to mixer to ADR director to sound designer. Every so often I get called upon to write some original music, but not so often that I bill myself as a composer. In addition the post audioness of my life I'm also writing and pitching some projects for TV with a partner. It occurs to me that I may have an issue with focus.

Every once in a while I update my blog here: http://www.adbofdifference.com/blog/

I live in London England, I'm sound mixer and engineer (which means I do everything sound orientated in this place) mainly mixing adverts, promos and tv shows for a terrestrial TV station.

I'm also recording, designing and mixing short films when and where I can, in the hope to better myself and move into the film industry.

I also co-run a sound studio in central London which is part of a new production company.

I'm a student currently living in Dubai, UAE hoping to get into film and game sound, I'm going to be starting film school in Jan 2012 in Auckland, NZ. I guess I could say my mindset about working in sound is pretty immature like I think it would be cool and funny if someone shoved a hydrophone up their butt and farted, I even got Mr. Nick Maxwell The Ableton Tutor to create something with my brothers fart for fun haha (I know it sounds like it but I don't have a fascination with flatulence). I'm just trying to experiment and have fun with sound until I actually end up working on something of importance, I've just been doing this for a year now just reading and doing research and building my knowledge and experience.

Recently I've been helping a friend at his studio he's been nice enough to sort of mentor me and give me real experience on producing music, its really been great in helping me be more serious and in showing me how hard you need to work to get projects done and things.

I'm a sound editor/designer in Los Angeles, CA under the moniker/company Stavrosound. I supervise some shows, while serving as part of a crew on other shows. Additionally I own Simultaneous Contrast, a new sound effects library offered presently through Sounddogs.com, still growing at about 3,800 assets to-date. I love going out to record new material at every opportunity.

I am a dialogue editor by trade (and fiercely at heart), although I have been in high demand lately for BGz, EFX, and Design work. It sort of ebbs and flows like that.

Hi, I'm Fred and I'm an aspiring Sound Designer.

I studied Sound Technology at LIPA in Liverpool, UK, before moving down to London and running at Hackenbacker for a year. I'm now running at Envy and I run a royalty-free sample library called Arrowhead Audio (http://www.arrowheadaudiosfx.com).

I love SSD and visit regularly, mostly reading it rather than posting and this thread is a fantastic idea. It's nice to read about what all you guys are doing!

Cheers

Fred Pearson

Hello All,

I have been a follower of this forum for a little over a year now, but only recently began participating it more. It is a great resource and thanks for creating this additional directory.

I am a sound designer, re-recording mix engineer, ADR/Narration/VO engineer, sound editor, and part-time composer working in NYC. I went to Berklee and have been in NYC for the last 5 years.

As we all know, working can suck and there days when I just don't want to do it, but then I remember that I just get to mess around with audio all day. And even though (at least in film and visual media) it is often an over-looked and under-appreciated aspect to the finished product, I have begun to notice that filmmakers and producers understand its value.

Thanks to a great community!

Apparently I missed this one!

I'm a freelance Sound Editor/Re-recording Mixer based out of Los Angeles working on projects ranging from short and feature films, TV shows, commercials, game audio, and web content. I also occasionally work on location recording dialog or FX, and have spent time doing FOH, orchestral recording, DJing, and video editorial/engineering.

Hey everyone! Recordist/Sound Designer/Mixer/ADR/Musician (Pretty much anything that has to do with sound I enjoy!) I'm coming from Seattle, Washington however have currently situated myself in San Francisco, CA. I'm a student getting my bachelors. However, I'm trying to get all the necessary gear and needs to start my creation of a professional sample library which I will deliver online. Besides that aspiration, I do almost all the sound for my friends student films down here in SF to start building my show reel.

BTW I'm available to contact if anyone people in the Bay Area wanna meet up for a recording session at some location to start building those sample libraries! :)

Best, MichaelBrennan

Jacob Paul Proctor here from Salt Lake City, Utah. I was shocked to see others from SLC on here! David sonnenschein too, his book is really good! I got my audio engineering education from the Los Angeles recording school, and worked at various studios out there before moving to Utah and starting my own studio. It's a pleasure to meet you guys!
