Pablo Betancourt Sound Design Demo Reel 2 from Pabl

I am a passionate sound designer for any kind of media….. literally any.
I like to do sounds for
. . . my cell phone, for video games, podcasts and for feature films 🙂
Any sound work you need, I am your guy.

Hello, I’m a sound designer/composer with experience in recording, field recording, editing and . . . interaction design. Since 2005, I have worked in many theater, cinema and music projects.
I was recently awarded a Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree with focus in Sonic Arts from Queen’s University Belfast (UK).

Frank Gustafson

Composer, Denmark

Specializes in: Film audio
Experience: Semi-pro

F Gustafson | Cinematic Music and Sound is the creative center of me, the composer Frank Gustafson. . . . It is based on a single concise vision: Authentic music rises from genuine emotions and creative originality.
I started my creative career by graduating from the Dutch Film Academy in 1996.
Nearly all my life I have created music and since 2008 I have produced a professional library of music suited for film, TV, trailers, commercial video spots and computer games.
Music references: Dave Porter (Breaking Bad), Jóhann Jóhannsson, Atticus Ross, Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel.

Video games have been a huge part of my life even since I was just a little kid. Sound takes a game . . . from being just a game to a memorable life experience. The sparkle noises of my fairy partner, the calming sound of a freshly lit bonfire, the horrifying screeches of the undead, and that oh so wonderful ding every time I level up. I want to keep creating those sounds that stick in gamer’s heads and bring them back to their greatest adventures, even after they’ve hung up their magic shields and talking swords.
I’m a passionate Sound Editor with experience in advertising to features films and game audio. I can . . . handle any size project and I’m not happy until you are happy.

I compose trailer music and run a recording studio in Finland.

My name is Christopher Cody Alcantara-Flick, but I go by Cody. I grew up with a love of sound and . . . video games. I now work as an audio designer for video games and it is a dream come true. My love for sound has been ingrained in me from birth by virtue of my family’s history in the entertainment industry as sound professionals. I learned to be aware of sound everywhere, appreciate it, and think critically of it. Video games were love at first sight, for me, starting with Space Invaders on my parents Apple II, which then blossomed into a deep passion when I was gifted my first home console, the NES. It was a natural progression for me to come to love game audio and pursue a career as an audio designer for games.
In college, I received a bachelors degree for Film and Digital Media, as well as Electronic Music. Through these fields of study, I become adept in two very important things for anyone in my vocation. First, I learned the relationship of sound, including music, and the visuals they accompany. Specifically, how they both combine to create something greater than the parts individually. Second, was learning the techniques of recording and manipulating the sound to reach a desired effect. With my unique upbringing these were easy concepts to grasp initially, and I continue striving to attain as much knowledge about them as I can. I never let myself believe I know everything about any subject.
I started my career in music editorial for television and films. It was a fantastic foot in the door where I was able to hone my technical skills, but I knew it was video games that I wanted to do. Now, more than four years later, I’ve never looked back. While working with the Warner Bros Game Audio Team I have worked on various AAA titles in addition to a few indie ones and have loved every minute of it. In addition to my experience with WB, I have contracted work with independent game developers. I also do work with internet video production companies such as Rocketjump to stay busy. I am self motivated to stay busy and get things done on time.

Game sound designer and integrator most recently having finished work on Get Even (Bandai Namco . . . Entertainment Europe) for PC, PS4 & Xbox One, gaining praise such as:
IGN – ‘But perhaps the strongest element of Get Even so far is the sound design’
Edge Magazine #298 – ‘Exceptional audio work’
Polygon – ‘legitimately anxiety-inducing sound design’.

I am a sound editor and designer, now living in Scotland (Thanks to my wife, who says she cant miss . . . the second independence referendum). I spent last 9 years working full time in the field of sound for picture. 8 of those in Warsaw and one year in Glasgow. Mainly in the studio, with ProTools as a main tool, I’ve recorded, cut and mixed sound for almost every type of picture. Working in commercial studios, I’ve specialised in SFX and Sound Design. I’d like to do more narrative work and documentaries, now that I’ve become a freelancer in Scotland.
Making sound for pictures is not only my work but also passion. I have an extensive library of my own recordings gather in studio (Foley library), on sound location jobs (ambiences,atmos, wallas) as well as sounds recorded with my Sony and zoom hand held recorders. My main interests lie in sound design. Ive been big fan of Omnisphere 2 for its organic and complex sound creation possibilities and so its been my first choice for making original sounds.
I also work as a location sound recordist. I own a quality location kit, which I’ve assembled for one man, documentary and TV type of work.
I’m available for both location and post-production work. Check out my vimeo site and dont hasitate to contact if you need a sound guy for your project.
thanks

If I were to meet you in real life, I would shake your hand and tell you “My name is George Hufnagl. . . . It’s great to meet you!” And it would be great, because meeting new people is great. The conversation would naturally lead to how I delight in working with game developers, live performers, toy makers, writers, and creative people of varying bents . If we hit it off, we might share ideas and laugh at all the silly ones, but then we’d land on something special. True story. Here’s how I can help:
SOUND DESIGN: sound effects, user interface audio, ambient tones, audio editing – I can assist in crafting a great user experience for the right audience.
MUSIC: from a catchy, melodic hook to an upbeat back track, I love creating whimsical, playful music with a heavy dose of levity.
