Role Models, Pt. 1: Sreejesh Nair

0 0 December 5, 2015

Doing something a little different this time around instead of just linking to a video and dropping in a lazy caption. I’d like to talk about a person in the industry that has helped me (albeit, unknowingly) learn and grow as an engineer by giving back to the community on a number of levels.

Sreejesh Nair is a fount of knowledge on topics like audio post production, Avid technologies, and mixing for surround / Dolby Atmos. Better yet, he is passionate about sharing his experiences for all with a thirst for learning. His blog film-mixing.com has been an invaluable source on multiple occasions throughout my career. If you’re trying to dabble in the dark arts of mixing in Atmos, Sreejesh is your go-to.

Here are a few of his blog posts that have been particularly helpful or have overwise resonated with me:

The Mix Assistant
A must-read for anyone starting their careers in the field. Approaching your intern/apprenticeship with the right mindset and attitude can have lasting effects on the habits you carry throughout your career.

The LFE Explanation
Anyone who has worked in a format that utilizers a subwoofer probably recognizes how important it is to manage the low end of a mix. A fascinating (and technical!) look into the relationship phase has on subharmonic content and how you can use it to your advantage.

The Final Mix Part 1and Part 2
A detailed look into Sreejesh’s workflow on a film mix, from start to finish.

Bouns! Here’s a youtube link to Sudeep Audio interview with Sreejesh in which he responds to a variety of questions regarding his career.
