During the cranberry harvest in northern Wisconsin, Red Bull’s Winch Sessions created some beautiful photography of wake skating on the bogs.  I enjoyed recording the production sound for this piece, and Nick Mihalevich did a great job with the post sound.

I recorded the production sound for this video for Victory Motorcycles that features stunt riders Tony Carbajal and Joe Vertical ripping around the track on bikes built for cruising across the country.  This version of the video stripped out the music to let the sound of these machines drive the excitement.

Clyde Doepner let us into his world for a day to create this piece about the Historical Curator for the Minnesota Twins.  I recorded the production audio for this profile piece about “Clyde the Guide.”
