IATSE Local 52
Eric Branting, NYC Location Sound

Welcome! I’m Eric Branting, an I.A.T.S.E. Local 52 Sound Mixer based in the Bronx, New York.

I’m passionate about my craft, excited by any opportunity to exercise my creativity, and privileged to be able to spend my career in the service of making art. Because the mood and milieu in which films are made inevitably have an outsize impact on the final product, I place the utmost importance on fostering a positive, respectful, and collaborative work environment.

I take a lot of pride in my work and hold myself to a very high standard in order to consistently deliver high quality audio. I also believe capturing excellent sound isn't just dependent on me and my team - it requires working closely with every other department and knowing when to compromise. To me, embracing a collaborative environment means earning and retaining my colleagues' respect and trust by understanding their needs when advocating for my own. I truly believe every department deserves credit for delivering a great dialogue track, and I go out of my way to hire teams who share this philosophy.

I could go on and on, but honestly? I’d rather be on set! Let’s make something amazing together.
