I Was There World Premiere and Festival Schedule


The world premiere for I Was There will be at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival Friday May 6th. Further information can be found here.

This will be my second straight film working with director Kris Roselli after 2014's Common Grounds and my first film credit as Supervising Sound Editor/Sound Designer.

I must give a big shout out to my colleague John Creed for his excellent sound work on the film. It was great to collaborate together again for the first time since we were interns at Danetracks.

This was such a fun project to design the sound on. Kris was great for encouraging me to always try to take something that was good and push to make it even better.

Gizmo from Gremlins was a big inspiration for the sound design.

The film will be making the festival circuit. I Was There has also been selected for the Hoboken Film Festival in June. I'm stoked for everyone who worked on the film and I hope lots of people get to check it out!

Good News Everyone!


Lately I've been working on the sound design for I Was There. This is my second film collaborating with director Kris Roselli. After cutting sound effects on last year's Common Grounds, I'm supervising the sound editorial on this short film. Look for more updates here in the future, but for now check out IWT's teaser:


A Place In Hell is set to premiere on October 25th. IndustryWorks Pictures is handling worldwide distribution. I'm stoked for horror film fans to view it. You can read more about APIH's release over at Fangoria.


That's it for now. But if you want some other awesome stuff to read, dive into Asbjoern Andersen's interview with David Farmer. He's an amazing sound designer and the interview is full of great insights on creature sound design.

A Place In Hell SFX


2014 is winding down and the past few months I've had the pleasure of working on the post sound for the independent feature A Place In Hell. Written and directed by David Boorboor, the film was shot in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with the post sound completed in Oregon.

This was my second project working with supervising sound editor/sound designer Michael Gandsey. Films with horror elements are a bit of a playground for the effects editor! Both David and Michael gave me a lot of creative opportunities to add elements of tension and foreboding with sound effects and foley.

BACK ROW: Composer ‪Mark Orton‬, Post Producer ‪Tierney Boorboor‬, Sound Designer‪ Michael Gandsey‬
FRONT ROW: Colorist John Davidson, Online Editor Dan Quintero, Sound Effects Editor Matt Dichirico, Dialogue Editor Brett Rothfeld, Director ‪David Boorboor‬

It was a great experience to collaborate with the entire post production team on this project! Check out the trailer below:
