Daniel Ignacio

Production sound for film & television

Metro Detroit, Michigan
Since 2016
I am a production sound mixer and boom operator for film, and A1 and A2 for broadcast television. For two years, I’ve worked on indie shoots, TV production trucks, big-budget movies, and in multi-camera studios.
I love the challenges that come with delivering quality sound for picture, and I dedicate much of my time to finding new solutions. You can always reach me by email and call/text. I’m down to chat.
