Meet the Crew

Colin Hart – Owner

Colin is a sound recordist and editor. He enjoys engaging conversation and long walks on the beach. If you’re lucky, you might catch him staring up at the stars and listening intently to the wonders of the world around him.

But on a serious note… I’ve been doing sound for about 15 years now. I started out doing live sound gigs in high school for a number of years, and then I started to develop an interest in film sound, but I got my foot in the door in music. I attended Full Sail University, where I received a degree in Recording Arts and a degree in Entertainment Business. I moved to NYC and worked at Electric Lady Studios for a little over a year. I worked with, on, and around some killer projects, but didn’t really like the industry, so I finally followed my heart into film. I studied what resources I could find in books and online, and I did a few cool gigs here and there. I eventually became tired of New York City and moved back down to Orlando.

That leads me to now. I have been recording sound effects for over 3 years now, and I’ve gotten fairly good at it. I started to see guys around the sound community (Tim Prebble, Frank Bry, Chuck Russom, Michael Raphael, and more…) start selling “independent sound libraries”. They really started to catch on in the community. Quality sounds from guys that know what they’re doing. And they’re WAY cheaper than huge libraries. I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to make a difference in the sound community.

I wanted to create something different too. My first library I decided to do was my Industrial library (Hart of Steel). You can get these types of sounds everywhere, but you can’t get a multitrack version with Isolated mics everywhere. That’s just the start though. I only intend to improve on what I’ve achieved so far! I’m always trying to push boundaries and try new things. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t. You can see a lot of my trials and errors in the blog section.
