Feature sound mixer with post sound experience based based in Los Angeles, CA. Competitive rates with professional and efficient work ethic. I own x3 Sound Devices mixers, x10 Lectrosonics lavs, x12 Comtek IFBs, x2 Smart Slates, Schoeps, Sanken and Sennheiser booms. I also own a covered trailer for long distance shoots.
My favorite sound mixer (everybody has one, right?) is Mark Ulano. His work hasn't needed a line of ADR in the last 20 years and I believe that is because of his preparedness. That's why I read scripts multiple times, take extensive notes, make an excel sheet for wilds and effects needed, and contact most department heads prior to every production. Every department affects and is affected by sound, which is also a reason to have a positive, efficient and professional attitude while working and problem solving.
