Mandorla Final MIx Wrapped at Skywalker Sound
7/30/14 – I’ve been working as the Sound Designer and Supervising Sound Editor on Mandorla, directed by Roberto Miller. We spent the last week and a half mixing the film up at Skywalker Ranch, and had a fantastic time working with Zach Martin. It was a lot of work, but it’s great to hear everything finally come together as a cohesive soundtrack. I’m looking forward to the day this piece makes it out into the wild!
