New video is up now!

Join me as I show you how I mixed the Recorded-At-Home Choir on the Main Theme by Jack Wall for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War!

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the session choir singers here in LA were unable to join together to record in a studio so each of the 16 singers recorded themselves at home and sent in those recordings for me to mix with Strings, Brass, and Prelays. This presented a little bit of a challenge to make the choir sound as if they were recorded in a big studio so I had to work a little magic to make it work.

I even rock my default pandemic garb of Swoveralls and a T Shirt so you'll get the comfy vibes with me in my home studio.

Knots is incredibly proud to share that we won Best Documentary Feature at #MANIFF!

We are so thankful to the city of Manchester, the Manchester Film Festival, and everyone who came along to support our film.

Honoured to be among so many incredible films and most importantly to raise awareness about forced & child marriage in America. This is for all the survivors out there, for everyone who needs to know they’re not alone.
