Location Sound Mixer

Sound Supervisor & Sound Mixer

My name is Brian Galyean,  I would like to record sound for your up coming project. My sound kit includes a Sound Devices 664 Mixer/Recorder, 4 Wireless, 2 other recorders for smaller scale jobs and vehicle kits, Sanken Shotgun and Sennheiser 416 shotgun mics as well as Time Code Slate and lock-it boxes.  IFB Listeners for producers.  I can provide everything you need to capture the highest quality sound possible for any project. Please see my IMDb page. I have worked on large budget productions like Paramount Pictures feature Nina, starring Zoe Saldana and Mike Epps, to smaller local Indies like Doo Dah Man starring Glenn Morshower.  I have mixed 18 feature films in the last 3 years, and numerous documentaries, TV shows, interviews and commercials. Some of my most recent Television experiences have been for the Netflix series Dirty Money, Food Network, Discovery Channel and Showtime.  Fast paced days are not an issue and I work well under stress. I do love to have fun on set but at the same time stay professional and courteous.  Please let me know if you have any questions I can answer. I am a dependable crew member who will make long days on set seem shorter.  I have a great sense of humor and love animals.  My mom says people really like me.

Everyone wants the best deal they can get and everything is negotiable within reason. I will match any legitimate quote from any qualified mixer with the same gear for the same job.
