Recent Mix: Let's Talk by Dominic Bartolini

An excellent short documentary I had the pleasure of mixing for director Rachel Klein was posted to REI’s YouTube channel. I enjoyed working on the film and Chris Andrews’ message.

Chris Andrews walked 3,200 miles across the United States to research the effects of digital overuse on our wellbeing. His spiritual and social journey challenges Americans to reimagine their relationship with technology and find balance in the digital age. This film meets Chris in Joshua Tree National park after 2,900 miles on the road.

Recent Mixes: 23AndMe / Icarus Films / Riverkeeper by Dominic Bartolini

A few projects were recently posted online. First is a wonderful mini-doc for 23AndMe produced by the talented folks at Transient Pictures.

An excellent short doc about an environmental advocate in New Jersey by Sara Leavitt. This doc had some audio issues with the primary interview being done on a moving boat, however the end result cleaned up well.

A trailer for the 40th Anniversary of Icarus Films. (A challenge blending all of the various archival audio).

2017 Review Part 1 by Dominic Bartolini

This last year has been super busy and exciting for all things audio. I now have two adjoining independent 5.1 mix suites, allowing me to take on projects of most any size. Additional photos of Studio B (and revised photos of Studio A) to coming soon.

Among many exciting projects in 2018, this fall I mixed the doc-reality-musical series “Shade: Queens of NYC” for my talented friends at Cowboy Bear Ninja. Shade is a truly unique and fun show that documents the drag community in NYC. Check it out on Fusion!

Recent Mixes - A Busy 2017 by Dominic Bartolini

It has been a busy 2017 for my studio and myself - Unfortunately, I rarely ever have time to post about my recent goings on. By the time I am able to publicly post about a project, I am often already busy with the next one! I have been fortunate to have been involved with a number of excellent projects for a wide variety of production companies and filmmakers. Moving forward I am going to post more video content that is publicly available online.

In coordination with various production companies and studios in 2017... 

I have sound designed and/or mixed promotional spots and other content for such as outlets USA, VH1, LMN, AMAZON, WeTV, SpotifyAMC, The GuardianNHK, etc...

Mixed a number of independent long and short form films in stereo and 5.1. More info to come on those as their premieres are announced.

Edited and mixed episodes of Follow The Data for Bloomberg News.

Mixed commercial spots for T Brand/Creative Media Design, Cowboy Bear Ninja, and Veekast.

Sound designed and mixed documentary videos for 23AndMe (via Transient Pictures).

In coordination with Bridge Multimedia, edited and mixed the descriptive audio channel for the Academy Award nominated documentary, I Am Not Your Negro - as well as descriptive content for JP Morgan Chase.

And the list goes on...
