Emmy Award-nominated audio engineer/sound designer Brian Beatrice has joined New York’s Bionic Media, the editorial/audio post house founded by editors Steve Beal and Todd Feuer. Beatrice joins Bionic following a three-year stint at Tonic, New York.
Twice nominated for Best Sound Design Emmy for his work on PBS's Behind The Lions, Beatrice began his career in 1997 as an assistant at the legendary National Video Center and Recording Studios, New York, working his way up from assistant to Audio Engineer/Sound Designer. In 2002 he followed accomplished composer Peter Fish to Tonic until joining Bionic, a company that Beatrice believes is perfectly positioned for the future of postproduction.
"I definitely think the Bionic business model of offering an array of creative services, talent and technology while maintaining a boutique vibe that's comfortable for clients, is their key to success," said Beatrice. "I'm proud to be a part of what Steve and Todd are trying to build."
Beatrice is currently working on a variety of projects, including spots for Nickelodeon, Sci-Fi and The History Channel, and long-form work on ABC's reality show Wife Swap.
In addition to Beatrice joining the company, Bionic Media has also made significant advancement to HD by adding Avid's DS Nitris HD system to aid in the creation of commercials, films, TV programs and theatrical spots. The addition compliments Bionic's already impressive HD arsenal that includes Avid's HD Adrenaline, Digidesign’s Icon audio system, and Sony's HDCAM deck.
