POST BREAK- The People Behind the Board: Revealing the Hidden World of Sound Mixing


For the 9th in our PNYA POST BREAK series - this week we jump into the world of Sound Mixing with a lineup of award winning panelists to give us an overview of this hidden and mysterious art form. Each from a different background and entry point, the conversation will cover the pathways and challenges of getting into the field, navigating the current remote process, and thoughts on creating opportunities to foster a more diverse talent pool.


POST BREAK- The People Behind the Board: Revealing the Hidden World of Sound Mixing

Thursday, June 18th at 4pm on Zoom


Andy Kris
, Re-Recording Mixer, Supervising Sound Editor

Andy has been working in the New York sound community for the better part of 25 years. He made the move to NY right after college where he found an internship at Good Machine, and a front row seat to the independent film explosion of the 90s. That led to the post production facility, Spin Cycle Post, where he was able to be a part of the digital post production revolution which kickstarted his career in sound post. He is forever grateful to have worked with many of the legends in the industry at a multitude of NY facilities, including: C5, Good Edit, Gun for Hire, Goldcrest Post, Sound One, Postworks, Sixteen19, Harbor Sound, and Warner Brothers NY. Recently, Andy has been navigating his greatest technological challenge, mixing and delivering television shows at the kitchen table with a laptop and headphones while trying to share internet bandwidth with his kids’ school Zoom classes.

Glenfield Payne, Sound Supervisor/Mixer

Glenfield has been working in Post Production sound since 1992. He’s been lucky to work with such amazing directors as The Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz and Cary Fukunaga to name a few. While he mainly works on feature films he has done quite a bit of television these past few years. He also really loves when he gets the opportunity to work on documentaries. He has branched out from an FX editor, to a supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer. He still feels that it’s better than working for a living.

Chris Chae, Sound Supervisor/Mixer

Grew up in Queens - attended Ithaca College and graduated from their Television Radio - Audio Production program. I always was determined on becoming a mixer - originally thought I would go into the music industry - but I got involved in post sound and discovered what a re-recording mixer was and it all clicked - hence turning my focus towards becoming a re-recording mixer. I had started off in NY as an intern at Soundtrack - due to some great luck of opportunities and support from the senior editors and mixers - I had become one of the editors and mixers on staff and remained there for several years and recently made the transition to freelance. Recent projects I’ve mixed are Country Music by Ken Burns - Never Too Late (Dir. Michael Lembeck). Currently I’m supervising and mixing - a film by Billy Crystal called Here Today and been working with Ken Burns’ UNUM team on their shorts for the web.


Julienne Guffain, Sound Designer/Mixer

With over a decade of experience, Virginia native Julienne Guffain has worked in every capacity of Audio post production, from Foley to Sound Design, Stereo to ATMOS and across a wide range of film, commercial and branded projects. Her passion for Audio comes from the nuanced ability to breath life into the flat image. Having worked at boutique shops like Hobo Audio, to leading the sound department at Crew Cuts, Julienne is now a part of the award winning Sonic Union team. She's worked with top clients such as Urban Decay, NBA, and Cadillac.

Brian Bowles, Dialogue & ADR Supervision

Brian Bowles has collaborated with Bill Condon, the Safdie Brothers, Jim Jarmusch, and most recently Jon Chu on In The Heights. As a Dialogue and ADR Supervisor, he has worked closely with directors and actors on a wide range of films from Beauty and The Beast, The Greatest Showman, Mid90s, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Only Lovers Left Alive. Episodic series like Fosse/Verdon and High Maintenance. As well as documentaries for Errol Morris and The Museum of Natural History.
