The edit and the music for this Billions trailer had to work together hand in hand to match the rising conflicts, so we sweetened the music track by adding guitar and synth!
This History Channel promo showed how typography, editorial, and some sweet sound design can engage audiences while continually showcasing the programming in unexpected ways.
Originally presented in 5.1-surround sound, the sound design was created to feel bold, direct, and emotionally raw to match the spot’s rising tension.
Engineer and Sound Designer
Todd has used his creative ear to mix and develop sound design for ABC, Staples, ESPN, Bud Light, New Balance, HBO, Hasbro, Applebees, NBC Sports, Wendy’s, Microsoft and HGTV.
In 2008 Todd decided to head back to New England where he grew up. Prior to joining Dog Ear Sound (a Viewpoint Creative company), Todd worked in New York City as a sound engineer for Hothead, Sound Hound and the NBC Olympics. His Emmy-Award winning sounds range from TV commercials and entertainment promos to radio spots and long form documentaries. He is a master with VO talent and makes sure you have everything you need for an outstanding session.
He has an amazing ability to blend creative sound with superior quality for each and every project he touches. To impact the listener on an emotional level is the closest thing to his childhood dream of being a rock star. He loves every minute of “making lots of noise for everyone to enjoy.”
DogEarSound is Highly professional...and with a welcoming atmosphere that's conducive to writers, producers and talent creating their best work!
