Sound Services for Film & Video
The show reel below features both location sound, audio post-production, voice talent directing and music editing. Audio and video post-production are handled through my production company, Cigma Media.
I believe sound can easily be more than 50% of a film or video production. Don't believe it? While watching a film, close your eyes and listen to the sound for a moment. You'll almost instantly get a sense of the mood, tone, drama and emotion of the scene. Now, open your eyes and mute the sound. Sure, the pictures are vital for creating the mood and drama, but without great sound, the emotional subtext of the scene can be difficult to determine. In most cases, you'll be able to follow the emotion of the story much better by listening to the sound than by only watching the pictures.
PLANNING IS IMPORTANT: It’s my goal to provide you with great sound, whether it’s for a company presentation, a training video, a documentary or a feature film. In order to achieve that, I highly recommend bringing me into your production process as early as possible. I'll often be able to save you time, energy and money by understanding the audio needs of your project before the shoot is scheduled.
IN STUDIO OR ON SET: Pre- and Post-production audio is my specialty. I've been producing award-winning audio for television, radio and live performance since the early 1970's, picking up 11 Emmy's® and an assortment of other awards along the way. I've worked with broadcasters, live performance, film producers and corporate clients. With my digital studio (VoiceActing Studios), I can handle just about any audio situation imaginable including: Voice track recording, ADR (automated dialog replacement), Foley, music scoring, music and sound effects editing, audio clean-up, and complete post-production for film and video. I also personally designed and engineered two television control rooms, a TV audio truck, supervised the sound installation for all meeting rooms for five major voiceover conventions and designed my own studio. How can I help with your studio sound?
Location sound can happen anywhere and experience is a great teacher. With more than 50 years of experience, I've been fortunate to handle location sound mixing and studio recording for literally hundreds of television programs, live meetings and presentations, broadcast interviews, corporate videos, film production, music recordings and radio commercials. How can I help with your location sound?
