Steve Nelson, CAS is a production sound mixer based in Hollywood CA with more than seventy films to his credit over more than three decades in the industry. He earned his MFA from UCLA in Motion Picture and Television Production where he was fortunate to study with the ground breaking post-production mixer Richard Portman, and, as his direct mentor, the international documentarian Jorge Preloran.
The late great David Ronne took me under his wing as I worked my way through the low budget world of independent filmmaking, highlights of which include Repo Man, Night of the Comet, The Waterdance, Mortal Kombat and American History X. Subsequent larger budget entertainments include Live Free or Die Hard, Fast and Furious, S.W.A.T., Neighbors, Dr. Strange and many more. There has been some television along the way, most recently the naval-themed action drama, The Last Ship on TNT, about to set sail on season four. I've been fortunate to work with some of the most talented people in the world and I'm excited to be sharing some of what I've learned over the years with the students of the Maine Media Workshops.
