Mind City Terror: Epic short kaiju film! Monster vs Robot.

Mon, 10 Oct 2016

Mind City Terror has been a long time coming! The Kickstarter began almost 3 years ago and the film has finally had its debut and is finding its way around the indie festival circuit! It was a real thrill to see and hear this epic battle projected in 5.1 surround sound at the Castro Theater in San Francisco last year. I spent a long time designing sounds for the robot and the monster, recording a good deal of new foley and combining it with special SFX packs director Curtis Jaeger had purchased for me to use exclusively on the project. You can follow announcements about the film, read recent reviews (they're positive!) and more at the MCT Facebook Page.

Orchard Supply Hardware: 85th Anniversary Train Video

Wed, 31 Aug 2016

Here's a really touching story about a company that has persisted through many generations, told with the metaphor of a train moving through time. I love trains! This spot was shot with a real working antique locomotive and automobiles. Costumes progress through 60's and 70's to today. It was a lot of fun to work on this with director Lisbon Okafor, who is always very articulate about sound design and detail in the audio. We had lots of actual train and car sounds to work with, so it was a real joy to put this piece together.
