Cam Girlz

– Sound Editing/Design, Post Sound Mix, Soundtrack Mastering –

In February 2015, our good friend and frequent collaborator Sean Dunne gave birth to (what I’m calling) ‘fraternal twin’ feature documentaries: the masculine ‘Florida Man‘ and the feminine ‘Cam Girlz‘. While the two films are quite different thematically (and in construction), they are both similar in that they feature the voices of fascinating people who (for the most part) happily operate on the fringes of mainstream American society.

American Juggalo

– Mixing, Production Sound Recording –

In this documentary short, director Sean Dunne takes us inside the world of the Juggalos – an intriguing American subculture who meet once a year at a music festival called “The Gathering of the Juggalos“. As Bob Lefsetz put it, the Gathering represents “an endless carnival of the disenfranchised. An underbelly pushed under the rug, joining together to have a good time.” I had the great pleasure of recording the production audio for the film as well as handling the mix in post. Since its release, the film has gone on to become a viral sensation. You can watch the entire documentary below (note: there is a good deal of strong language and instances of brief nudity in the film – it is not appropriate for children to watch).

Meet The Filmmaker

– Mixing –

Meet The Filmmaker is a series of 13 broadcast spots which aired on the Sundance Channel. The documentary-style pieces profile a handful of the directors whose films played as part of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. In addition to mixing the broadcast versions, I also mixed the director’s cut (web) versions. Below, you can watch the spot with Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine). More of the spots can be viewed here.

The Next Big Bang

– Sound Design –

This History Channel documentary, hosted by particle physicist David Kaplan, follows the story (and theory) behind the construction of the “Large Hadron Collider” at the CERN laboratory in Switzerland. I contributed original effects for the film, in collaboration with the sound mixers at Gramercy Post. The film was produced by Silent Crow Arts.
