Primetime Television Specials for FOX and PBS

I had the pleasure of working on a fun primetime 1-hr special broadcast for FOX Sports. Titled US Open Epics: Tiger & Rocco, the documentary looked back at one of the greatest extended tournament matches in US Open golf history between Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate. Directed and Produced by Bryan and Amy Storkel, who I recently had the pleasure of working with on White Tide: The Legend of Culebra, it was a blast sound editing and mixing this film and watching it play on the flagship FOX channel during Sunday primetime in advance of the US Open!



I also had the joy of working on another broadcast 1-hr documentary piece, this time for PBS, as part of their Emmy award-winning Artbound series. Called The Art of Basketweaving, this program looked at the culture and history of basketweaving amongst Native American tribes along the West Coast. Directed by Corbett Jones and made by the people at The Range, it was a wonderful project to be a part of.

New Short Film Projects

I recently completed mixing work on Sara Newens’ beautiful short Footprint, a purely observational portrait of how visitors engage with the World Trade Center Memorial. Sara reached out to me in the months before filming to discuss strategy of how to best capture audio for the delicate film, and I fell in love with the project and am happy to have worked on the sound editorial and mix.

The film has played AFI Docs, IFF Boston, the Nashville Film Festival, Florida Film FestivalMaryland Film Festival and many others, it won the Audience Award at the Denver Film Society RSC Shorts Fest, and the History Award at the Dallas International Film Festival. The film will release this fall as a New York Times Op-Doc.


And lastly I joined forces once again with John Ross and the team behind Crypt TV’s The Thing in the Apartment for another fun horror short, this time for FOX Digital Studios and a film called Gregory. Playing as part of their Bite Size Horror anthology, the film premiered at CanneSeries, and will play at LA Shorts Fest, Hollyshorts, and ScreamFest in upcoming months.


Field Adventures and Upcoming News

I’ve got some very exciting project news up ahead on the horizon, as well as some new film festival debuts ahead I look forward to being able to announce. I also recently completed a fun field recording trip out in the Midwest where I got to try out some new equipment and some new Ambisonics recording techniques in some pretty unique environments. I may not be awarded any style points for the fashions I had to wear, but it’s always fun to go out into the world and experience new things and capture new sounds. Balancing time between being in the studio behind the console and being out in the world is always a healthy mix. And new gear and new ways to record in surround are always things I enjoy. With luck there will hopefully be more recording travels abroad in the near future as well! In the meantime, back to the studio, back to work mixing, and I look forward to announcing some of the new projects in the next update! Thanks for reading!
