Who We Are

Stacks Image 14
Dynamix Productions is owned by Neil Kesterson, a sound designer for film, video, television, radio, audiobooks, theatre, games, web, and multimedia since 1985. His very first sound design job was to recreate the Bell X-1 breaking the sound barrier, of which pilot and aviation legend Chuck Yeager said was the most realistic depiction of the historic even he had ever heard.

Neil Kesterson's work has been heard on most major television and radio networks, in theaters, on video, and in arenas. Some projects of note include the television shows Treme on HBO; Mad Dogs on Amazon; Law & Order: SVU on NBC; and Mind Games and The Crossing on ABC.

Documentaries include A&E Biography: The Monkees; The Lincolns in Kentucky; Nick Nolte: No Exit; and The Johnny Cash Anthology.

Motion pictures include War for the Planet of the Apes; Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days; Strange Wilderness; and Hide and Seek.

Other projects of note include "The Dick Vitale Alarm Clock"; comedy albums for Greg Warren and Mike Macrae; and live radio broadcast work for the NCAA, The Triple Crown Radio Network, and NPR.

Awards include those from the International Broadcasting Awards, Telly Awards, Silver Microphone Awards, the American Advertising Federation, and one Emmy nomination.

Large, long-term projects can save you money if you plan ahead of time. Avoid unexpected costs and over-runs by getting a package price with contingencies and revisions built in.
Small projects can also benefit from an estimate from us. The cost to produce some elements of a production may surprise you.
