Sound Mixer
Working on sound is like working on the third dimension. We are the third dimension.
Martin M Messier

When a project arrives on Martin’s desk, that means his colleagues in sound design, dialogue editing, sound-effects editing, music and post-sync have already worked on it. “Mixing is the last step, bringing everything together.”

Martin says it’s like being a director of photography. “Like them, I choose where to put the focus, depending on the scene’s emotional intent.”

With attention to detail and technical finesse, he gives the work his own signature and sound continuity. “It has to be beautiful as a whole.”
