Austin Chase

Re-Recording Mixer

Austin is an audacious sound editor and mixer from Los Angeles. Writing and recording music at an early age opened his eyes to the glory of sound creation.  While forever a musician, Austin began obsessing over the sound choices in There Will Be Blood and Game of Thrones.

A chance meeting jump-started his sound career – legendary Sound Supervisor Scott Hecker was having dinner at the restaurant where Austin was bartending.  Austin immediately recognized him from behind the scenes videos about his favorite films, and Scott was quick to take him under his wing.  

As he sank his teeth into post production sound, Austin began editing and mixing independent features such as The Funeral Guest and Summer of 8 as a team of one.  He learned quickly on the job, covering a wide variety of genres, languages and scopes of films.

Always committed to pushing the limits of his comfort zone, Austin has more recently been mixing TV commercials and web spots. He not only welcomes new challenges, he craves them in an endless hunt for auditory satisfaction in the world of media.

Austin brings a limitless desire to push his abilities and experience to every new project.  His ears are wide open for whatever project is just around the bend.

In each project, he records new and interesting material in order to give it a unique sound.

He works regularly as a video game dialogue editor, carefully sculpting each line to perfection, on AAA game series including Star Wars: The Old Republic, Call of Duty and League of Legends.
