Brian Berger is an audio engineer with more than ten years of experience producing, mixing, editing, and engineering for a variety of mediums. His work spans platforms such as film dialog and sound FX editing/mixing, contemporary music production, classical and jazz production, as well as film and podcast score composition and production. He served as Chief Engineer for 99.1FM WIUX, the largest student organization at Indiana University with over 350 members, before being promoted to Station Manager in 2016.
Brian has been the head sound designer on a wide range of short films since 2014, including Best Picture winner at Crimson Film Festival, “From the Ground Up”, and a film from Indiana University’s specialized Robby Benson short film class, “Fragile”. His dedication to precision with dialog and sound FX editing, as well as his attention to detail in his final mixes have presented him with continuous work in short film sound design. In 2016, he gained even more experience interning at Larson Studios in Hollywood. There he achieved the professional experience necessary to work in a high-end post production house.
While attending Indiana University, Brian produced, engineered, mixed and mastered genres that ranged from indie rock to classical symphonies. He has put in over 300 hours of recording and archiving Indiana University orchestras, jazz bands, operas, and many other performances. This experience honed knowledge in not only signal flow, mixing, and tracking techniques, but also in file management and delivery.
Brian has also composed and produced scores and original music for six films and a podcast, as well as releasing five albums with various bands or under his own name, all of which were engineered, mixed and mastered by him. He gained experience with music and voice-over editing while at his internship at Man Marketing in Chicago. He will be receiving his Bachelor of Science in Recording Arts from Indiana University in May of 2017, with a concentration in Telecommunications.
