Brad Engleking has been a sound professional in the film industry since 2000 when he graduated from Texas State University with a BA in music/sound recording technology. During this time he has worked on a wide range of film projects from Robert Rodriguez's Sin City to Terrence Malick's Song to Song
Brad's 15+ year collaboration with director Robert Rodriguez and Troublemaker Studios began in 2002 with Spy Kids 2. This movie was one of the first ever action films mixed on Pro Tools. Brad helped to design and install the system, which at the time was revolutionary in the world of large feature film mixing.
Brad and and his partner Sergio Reyes have worked together as a mixing team since that time. They excel at bringing a polished and artful sound to the screen and a laugh to every client that they meet. Brad is now also the co-sound supervisor at Troublemaker on charge of overall sound concepts and artistic direction. Brad, Sergio, Robert and co-sound supervisor Tim Rakoczy continue to form the heart of the sound crew at Troublemakers Studio.
In addition to his work with Robert Rodriguez, Brad particularly enjoys working with young directors and on independent films. His work on numerous experimental and documentary features and shorts can be seen at festivals around the world.
In an effort to help educate future filmmakers, Brad has taught classes and lectured at The University of Texas at Austin Radio Television and Film department and at Texas State University's Sound Recording Technology department, and has participated in panels at SXSW. He has also been featured in industry trade publications including: Pro Sound News, Editor's Guild, and Studio Daily.
