053 – Phil Stockton & The Sound of “Silence”

Phil Stockton is a long time Sound-Supervisor based in New York City. In this episode we talk to him about the work he did on Martin Scorsese’s new film “Silence”. Lots of effort went into creating the soundscape of this story that takes place 400 years ago. As a bonus we start off with a quick hit of Tom Fleischman’s experience as the re-recording mixer of the film.

051 – Remembering Patrick

Patrick ST
I love this picture of Patrick as a young(er) man out in the world with his recording gear.

Patrick Spence-Thomas was a pioneer in the audio post world and also a mentor to co-host Timothy’s early years in the business. In this episode you get some stories about what a great guy Patrick was and then Timothy shares a holiday message Patrick left us before he passed away.

050 – Stories of Audio Glory!

For Our 50th episode we reached out to our listeners and some industry veterans to tell us about their best days on the job.  We have over an hour of tales about audio awesome-ness.
