About Me

Who is this guy?

Tyler Faison - Location Sound Mixer Dallas, TX

Working almost exclusively in reality, I have several multi-track rigs and contacts throughout the country to get your show staffed and geared at a moment's notice. Whether you're shooting here in Dallas or an international travel series, you'll be in the right hands for your production. Get the experience and equipment you need to make a truly professional and uneventful production by having someone who is familiar with the process of what it takes to make a full season of a show. Understanding the workflow all the way through post-production is clearly important, and I've been there...a lot! You will be happy, Post will be happy, and most importantly your audience will be happy! Just give me a call or e-mail to get things started for ANY type of shoot.

Experience

I've been doing location audio since 2006, and have been fortunate enough to work with the best people in the production industry. Whether you're an out-of-town producer or a local production company, I strive to exceed your expectations. My reputation is always on the line, so there's (almost) nothing I won't do to protect it. I've worked with a variety of cameras and formats, including Sony, Panasonic, Canon, JVC, RED, miniDV, HDV, HD, 35mm, and tape or tapeless. Knowing this, you can trust that I will take care of you and your production and know what's being recorded and where. No matter the project, you'll get professional sound and service.

The Gear

Everything you see here will be customized to accommodate each production. What you see below are individual components of kits that are commonly used on multi-track reality shows.

Whether you're hiring us or just renting gear, all kits include a tidy "emergency pack" full of all the commonly needed extras so that if something goes down in the field you will have what you need to replace it...including a spare lavalier.
