“I haven’t posted in a while!” I bet you have never read that line on a blog before! Well, here’s another one for you to read:
I haven’t posted in a while. I have had the blessing of being a busy guy most of these past 6 months. I have a couple of fun posts I’ve been slowly tapping away at for a while now. (Topic hints: My girlfriend recorded sounds in Ukraine for me! And I still like recording trains!) In the mean time, I figured I’d share some of the work I’ve been involved with since my last post.
Tasmanian Tiger is one of the most fun films I’ve ever worked on. If you can’t tell how freaking wonderful the film is by this trailer… then you’re just wrong.

This was my first dark/absurdest comedy I’ve had the chance to work on, and it was a blast. I was the sound effects editor on the project. There were so many fun elements to design, and being able to add hints of comedy to moments that called for heavy sound design was something I’d never done before. Couldn’t be happier with the end product. Keep an eye out for this one!
Buddig – “Ice Time”
I never used to get that emotional over lunch meat and/or children’s hockey. That was until I was asked to work on this Buddig deli meats spot.

I’m not kidding, I almost can’t make it through this without getting teary eyed. I don’t know why. I don’t have a child; I never played ice hockey. I do enjoy deli meat. Really though, it’s just a wonderful piece (with some great sound design and mix!). Go ahead and show this one to your mother… she stands no chance.
I’m not quite sure how to sum up this one in a quick blurb. I will say this is the most intense, beautiful, and thrilling film I’ve ever been involved in.
Without a doubt, Scopia has been the most sound design intensive film I’ve ever worked on. It has pushed my skills to new limits and made me a much better sound designer. Scopia is currently in post-production.
Sunburst Races – “Last Cup”
I love working on comedic material. Sound can always help communicate a message but in comedy, it can sometimes be a much more obvious notion. In the case of “Last Cup”, it meant completely over designing the sounds in an otherwise dull situation.
