Jason Wheeler

Jason Wheeler For most of my life I have always had the passion for Music and Film. Being able to manipulate one sound to create another, hearing each sound in cinema or on my own computer is absolutely amazing. Post production. I once went to Pinewood Studios and saw this being done professionally and made me understand what my passion was. Being a musician and also having a good eyes and ears for detail, I would love to work in the film industry. I would love to be a creative Sound Composer or Sound Designer/Engineer. After graduating from University I was able to get a real in-depth understanding of what was needed for these industry areas. I have already worked in different projects, such as Independence Day, recreating parts of the sound, dialogue, sound effects (SFX) and all music composition on the movie. Other similar movies would be The Grudge, The Ring, The Evil Within and my most recent Lunch Date. Between these movies I have been able to gain a greater knowledge for what sound design and music composition mean. My future aspirations would be to further my career in the film industry
