Chris,
We miss you! Your recordings and mixdowns in season 1 of “Stranger Things” provided us with such an amazing
launchpad for exploring the soundscape possibilities of our cinematic series. Iso tracks were clear and the avid mix
required very little futzing. Netflix never bumped or bothered us on the recordings or intelligibility. We were free to
devote our focus elsewhere since you spared us any clean-up work. We’re grateful!
Thanks,
Rand Geiger
Co-Producer / Post Production Supervisor “Stranger Things”

Chris –
Thought you might appreciate some positive feedback (if you’ll excuse the sound pun). I’m cutting most of the
production
sound on “What to Expect…”, and I just want you to know that your obvious hard work is paying off. Yes, there are
some scenes in ridiculously noisy locations, but between your good lavs and my careful use of noise-reduction
plugins I
think it’s all going to work quite well at the mix (first temp mix starts Jan. 3rd).
Thanks for doing it right!

Chris,
Congratulations on another season of Teen Wolf and we look forward to working with you again on the next 24
episodes.
I just wanted to commend you and your team for providing excellent and well-managed recordings for dailies.
Your persistent attention-to-detail helped us to deliver the dailies in the most efficient manner possible and it did
not go
unnoticed by me and my team. I truly appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Sincerely,
Stuart Huggins

Hi Chris,
David Briggs, Supervising Sound Editor here on The Red Road in New York.
First of all, great job. Challenging locations sometimes for sure but the recordings are great.
Our ADR studio engineer here at Goldcrest Post here in New York wanted to ask what types of mics you used on
set for
booms and lavs so he can get his best match for principal ADR recording here. (with the exception of the
Kopus/Harold
rain scene in 102 outside the burger joint, ADR has mostly been for additional lines for storytelling points, and the
occasional
minor tech issue and occasional New Zealand accent slip for Martin/Harold.)
Thanks,
David Briggs

Thanks Chris, nice job. We’ve just stated mixing and the dialogue sounds great. We always have the mics we need,
which is no easy feat with so many people running around.
