JUNE 2018 UPDATE!

Lots of work going on behind the scenes and several results of which will be hitting your earholes soon!   

First -

INSIDE JAWS:  The follow up from Mark Ramsey & I to Inside Psycho and Inside The Exorcist.  7 Episodes of our signature style audio rich single narrator story-telling inspired by the stories behind the making of a classic.  This is a great follow up for the Inside series - and you'll definately want to bring it to the beach!

Next

POPS! The Remarkable Story of Louis Armstrong:  Written by Mark Ramsey, acted/narrated by Reno Wilson and audio design by yours truly - this is a mold breaker.  We take the single narrator audio rich approach of the "Inside" series and make it a first person account by Louis himself - from birth to death and 6 episode of goodness in between.  Can't wait for you to hear this.  

True Crime?  Check - Sept is the release - will have more as it develops.  

A few other projects already out in the world - Trader Joe's podcast for example and several more in early stages.  Will update as allowed.  

Happy listening!

PODCAST: BEHIND THE SCENES OF INSIDE THE EXORCIST

Just a wee bit meta here - Mark Ramsey and I chat about the making of Inside The Exorcist podcast.

We cover: 

Why The Exorcist? Why tell the story of the film and its makers in podcast form? And why choose a fresh audio graphic-novel storytelling approach? Those are just a few of the questions answered in this “behind the scenes” look at the making of one of the hottest podcasts of the year. Series creator and narrator Mark Ramsey talks with the show’s amazing sound designer Jeff Schmidt. Don’t miss the discussion about the secret “Easter egg” hidden in the audio that was only recently discovered by a Russian fan, or the inspiration for the chilling ending (hint: It is a movie, but it’s not The Exorcist).

BEHIND THE AUDIO OF "INSIDE THE EXORCIST" WITH A SOUND EFFECT

Sound effect library website A Sound Effect is a terrific resource for indie sound effect libraries which I use quite often. Beyond that -  It's also an amazing resource for behind the scenes interviews with some of the most creative sound designers in media - film, TV, video games - and now - podcasts!  

I was honored to share the behind the scenes of my audio work on Inside The Exorcist and a bit about Dirty John as well. 

Check it out HERE and make sure to check out all their other interviews as well - lots of inspiration and stuff to learn!
