PAX EAST / AT&T eMLS CUP 2018: SOUND EDIT+ MIX FOR SHORT DOC

Junior Birdman Audio provided post sound for this recent short doc of the first-ever eMLS Cup at PAX East 2018 in Boston, featuring Jimmy Conrad and sponsored by AT&T. The mix had to be lightning quick, including polishing announcer and interview dialog captured in a difficult situation. I created a sound design replete with assorted accents and crowd audio from my personal field recording library, then whipped up a mix and delivered on a tight turnaround.

SOUND EDIT + MIX FOR MEDICAL ANIMATION: iTRACK, ELLEX MEDICAL

Sound edit and mix on a promo featuring med tech by Ellex Medical for glaucoma surgery. The client wanted VO way out front, FX and music low-key and understated. Many sonic events hover on the horizon line at the verge of perception: an enjoyable challenge to balance all the elements.
