I’ll link to show audio as soon as it’s mixed.
This weekend I will be at the Hear Now Festival in Kansas City, MO with my friends in Chicago’s Wildclaw Theatre company. I’ll be backing up Foley designer Ele Matelan at the foley table as we present the award-winning short audio drama “Skinny” at the festival’s AUDIO Tonight event on Saturday.
Also at the festival, Wildclaw will be presenting my brother Tim’s short audio drama “Imaginary Fiend,” as recorded at Deathscribe 2015.
Be there or be absent!
I recently completed the sound design for this short video for Americans for Responsible Solutions, a nonprofit founded by former House representative Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, in the wake of 2012’s Sandy Hook shooting. The spot was conceived and realized by my fantastic co-workers at Ogilvy & Mather Chicago.
This Adweek article talks about the video in detail.
I’m thrilled to be working once again with the lovely folks at Chicago’s Wildclaw Theatre on their annual “Deathscribe” event. I’ll be co-music directing the show with Paul Foster.
The Ninth Annual International Festival of Radio Horror Plays will take place on Monday, December 5th, at 8:00pm. This collection of bone-chilling audio nightmares will be performed live at Deathscribe’s NEW VENUE, Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago. A new ticket structure will also be in place for this year’s Deathscribe with admission at $35 for lower level seating, $30 for upper level seating and $25 for standing room only so be sure to purchase your ticket EARLY to reserve a seat!
I recently created the sound design for this piece featuring the real-life Mrs. Meyers. The feel of the piece was to be intentionally somewhat scrappy, so backgrounds were played loud, as if the sounds were captured in-camera. But they were all created in the studio!
This month I’m working on post-production sound for Wendell Etherly’s feature-length drama Market Value. I’m working with a fantastic crew on this picture. For Foley I’m joined by Steve Baldwin and Ele Matelan, who have performed Foley for the last several films I’ve worked on. Additionally, the immensely talented Shannon Nicole Hill has come on board to direct Time Loop Chicago*, my loop group ensemble. I had a great opportunity to make recordings of two of the main picture cars in the film, courtesy of lead actor/executive producer Chandra Michaels. We’re about half-way done with post sound and hope to mix in about three weeks.
*Time Loop Chicago is (this time):
Awhile ago I did postproduction sound for a short film called Fate Accompli, directed by Eric Neal and featuring the fantastic Walt Sloan and Erin Breen. It went through the festival circuit (Best Thriller Short, Illinois International Film Festival 2014) and is now viewable on Youtube. You can also see it on my Videos page.
