Mark produced amazing mixes of the audio to my project, for both Cinema and Streaming. Incredible clarity with every sound and dialogue crystal clear.
It was wonderful working with Mark! He patiently elaborated the process for me and worked on the surround sound with absolute precision. He is also very open to feedback and changes. Recommend him for sure!
Elite, "World Class" mixing and Foley by Mark, a true professional at the top of his game. Incredible attention to detail in mixing my narration and soundtrack for my animation. 11 out of 10!
Mark is a true professional and his experience in sound mixing is priceless. I am so pleased I have used Mark to mix my project and I will be using him again. He is 10 out of 10.
I am very impressed with the level of professionalism and quality of work that Mark delivered. He was able to accommodate our needs and understand our expectations despite project complexity. Indeed, he contributed a lot to the success of our project and i hope we can make it together again.
Mark is one of the most professional, courteous, and experienced engineers I have worked with to date, especially for someone new to working in the Dolby Atmos format. His résumé speaks for itself, you won't regret hiring him.
Extremely kind, patient, and helpful, in addition to his technical and musical abilities, extensive experience and achievements in Atmos/Surround creation and mixing. Went way above and beyond for someone new to the format, can't say enough positive things. I doubt anyone who hired him would be disappointed, the job will be done correctly and most likely exceed your expectations.
Mark really shaped and controlled the sound of this project to be as impactful, clean, and effective. With a project that will be used exclusively for live sound he made so many accommodations and thought through how to make the project the most effective it cold be.
Working with Mark has been just great. Great communication and, something I felt was very important for this project, great imagination. - I'm not overly technical with my instructions, but Mark was able to quickly turn my ideas into reality. And the final mix is simply Top Quality. Highly Recommended! And thanks!
Mark gave great advice when preparing tracks for mixing, shown a lot of patience and has provided a great result. I would recommend him to anyone wanting the best mixing available.
Working with Mark was a great experience and pleasure. Not only did Mark bring my composition alive through his excellent mixing and mastering technique and ability, but he was professional and input his valuable experience in a way which I can practically apply.
I will definitely continue to look to Mark for my future requirements.
He fully understood what I would like to pursue to achieve my vision in music, and every response as well as delivery was incredibly fast and clean. Absolutely satisfied to work with him.
Mark is really great to work with. Very intuitive and so accepting of feedback. He delivers such a great product every time.
Amazing mixing engineer! Will work with him again :)
Mark is the best. 1) He is fast. 2) That speed does not waist his efficiency. His intuition is spot on. 3) He is a really nice guy. 4) Those credits mean something and you feel the wisdom gained through his experience in your tracks. I don't know about you but I want that in my music.
Mark is an absolutely gifted engineer who has golden ears. He exactly not only knew how to make orchestral sounds solid and come alive, but carefully paid attention to all of my detailed requests. He's undoubtedly professional and I strongly recommend working with him.
Mark is really great! Recommend to working with him.
Mark got ears made of Gold. Efficient, very sensitive about details, wonderful tastes for how music suppose to be placed. I can sense how he's been enjoying in his profession and how he treats music like it's his own. I'll be thrilled to recommend him if anyone is looking for a professional work with beautiful delicate music tastes! That'll be Mark
I would enthusiastically recommend Mark for anyone seeking professional sound mixing work. We had surround sound mix issues for a documentary, and Mark was able to solve our questions intelligently, professionally, and efficiently. Highest rating!
Mark is a real pro. He made my poor sounding recording sound powerful and was able to make corrections I would never have thought could be done.
He is a great communicator, very structured and quick.
Interview with Mark Willsher
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say the ability to step back from all the minutiae and see the bigger picture. Does the track make me want to listen - does it encourage me to lean in or to step away - is it conveying the artist's intention - is it supporting the storytelling?
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Can I get any demos you have, as well as conductor scores (if they exist)? and picture (when mixing for film)? I will also have questions about the story, and how you approached writing the music.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I have found that the ideal way to communicate about music and sound with someone you haven't worked with before, is through examples; which will help lay the foundation for a common language. Without examples the same verbal descriptions can mean different things to different people.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I played trumpet and piano through college (BMus), which is when I got involved in recording. After college I did a year and half stint at the Banff Centre for the Arts as an Audio Associate working primarily on chamber music and jazz projects, as well as live concerts. Early in my career I had no interest in film music and just wanted to make records. Unexpectedly I ended up working on three film projects back to back in 2002 that took me as a scoring mixer to Moscow and Seoul, and as a music editor to Abbey Road (London) and New Zealand. After that I was hooked and realized that I loved working on films as much as - if not more than - records.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take no gear.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If something is bothering you fix it at the time - don't assume you can fix it later.
