Glenn Berkovitz has worked in the world of sound-for-picture since 1981. Beginning as a music engineer, sound editor and post-production mixer in multi-track studios, Glenn transitioned to location production mixing in 1985. His credits range from Hollywood features to globe-trotting documentaries, with every variation of television and commercial programming in between. Feature films in twelve states, documentaries in eight countries, and broad experience configuring old-school mono and modern-day multi-channel audio recording systems all contribute to help Glenn adapt to his profession’s wildly differing sound demands.
Glenn frequently teaches production sound at the Los Angeles Film School and Los Angeles’ Inner City Filmmakers, and is a guest lecturer for West L.A. College’s Hollywood CPR program, as well as at high schools in the Los Angeles area and the Los Angeles Recording School. Glenn has instructed and trained engineers in production recording on-site in Nicaragua and Honduras, and has collaborated with fellow mixers on field recording projects around the globe. A continuing member (and recently retired Board member) of IATSE Local 695 (film sound union) and the Cinema Audio Society, and a longtime member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and the Audio Engineering Society, Glenn maintains an active and widely networked presence in the world of motion picture sound.
Glenn’s recent production mixing work has kept him home in L.A. for the most part. A (generally accurate) work history may be found on the Internet Movie DataBase: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0075453/ .
