ToyMakerz Season 3: TV Show: History Channel

Just finished up all the post audio for ToyMakerz season 3 on the history channel. 8 episodes / 10 promos / 45 network ID’s.

Dialogue edit, Sound Design, SFX Vehicle Recording, Re-Recording Mixer,

This season I was also involved in the production based in NC.

I was hired to record the unique vehicles in the show along side the talented production mixers Westly Moore and Jeremy Childers.

Over 200 hours / 250 gigs of audio was captured of multi mic’d recordings of the unique vehicles.

From that I created a SFX library with 50 gigs / 2000 files of useable audio to work with while sound designing each episode.

Some very loud cars!! The willy coup was hitting 140 dB+ while revving in the shop.
