Emmy Award–nominated audio engineer/sound designer Brian Beatrice has joined Bionic Media (New York City), the editorial/audio post-production house founded by Steve Beal and Todd Feuer. Beatrice joins Bionic following a three-year stint at digital mixing facility Tonic in New York City.
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 in New York, working his way up from assistant to audio engineer/sound designer. In 2002 Beatrice followed accomplished composer Peter Fish to Tonic until joining Bionic.
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.
Bionic Media has also added Avid’s DS Nitris HD system. The addition compliments Bionic’s HD arsenal, which includes Avid’s HD Adrenaline, Digidesign’s Icon audio systems and Sony’s HDCAM deck.
“So many of our clients have launched HD channels in the past six months that now we’re fielding many more requests to originate or repurpose spots in HD for network promotion, TV and cinema use,” says Beal.
