Joe Barrucco

This is the guy I recommend for sound. It can easily cost you a small fortune, but he did it for next to nothing. I can't believe it. I can’t tell you how worried I was about the sound. 90% of the sound effects are foley he made. He cleaned up all the dialogue, which is a big task in itself, got everything to be seamless, did 5.1 mixing, etc. Always have your sound designer do a demo. That’s how I narrowed it down. No matter what they say, all that matters is what they can do.

James Sizemore

This man is brilliant. We actually got to record live instruments. I didn’t think that was possible on my budget (or lack thereof). All I can say is thanks James, and thanks to all these amazing, incredible musicians. It was the greatest honor to be there and hear you guys play. We have a score I’m immensely proud of, and it fits the movie perfectly. I really wanted something extraordinary, and James delivered far beyond my wildest expectations. I couldn’t be happier.
