Hollywood, CA (November 17, 2006) — Award-winning sound re-recording mixer Ken Teaney has joined Todd-AO Hollywood, where he will team with re-recording mixer Lisle Engle to focus primarily on episodic television projects, the fastest growing segment of the facility’s business.
Teaney and Engle are currently handling audio post work for the ABC series Men in Trees and for TBS’ My Boys. Recordist Richard Camara assists the pair.
The pairing of Teaney and Engle is the latest move in the ongoing expansion of Todd-AO Hollywood. The facility has recently effected a number of technical upgrades, in part, to facilitate its growing roster of television clients. “Ken and Lisle are first-class talents and make wonderful additions to the Todd-AO team,” said operations manager Richard Burnette. “We have placed them in a superb mixing environment, equipped with the very best technology, so that they can maximize their talents, work efficiently and deliver an exceptional product to our clients.”
Teaney formerly held a staff post at Wilshire Stages and brings a long list of credits in episodic television, feature films, commercials and other media. His television work includes the series CSI, Las Vegas and The Division. His more than 300 film and MOW credits include Friday, Blade, The Count of Monte Cristo and Menace II Society. He has also mixed more than 30 large-format IMAX films. Teaney expects to continue to handle large-format and feature film projects as his television schedule allows.
Engle comes to Todd-AO Hollywood from the company’s Burbank facility, where he recently worked on the series Alias and Without a Trace. He, too, has a background in feature films as a sound effects editor, including such titles as About Schmidt, Bend It Like Beckham, Vanilla Sky and Monster’s Ball. An accomplished songwriter and musician, Engle began his career in the recording industry before segueing into audio post production.
Teaney and Engle will work out of a newly-remodeled mixing and screening stage equipped with Digidesign Pro Tools and a ProControl.
