About Ryan J. Frias

I am a freelance sound editor, re-recording mixer, sound designer, and audio engineer from San Francisco, California. I have extensive sound experience in film, broadcast, online media, video games, and music.

Me

Sound is amazing. You don’t notice it unless it’s missing or if something just doesn’t “sound” right. What many people don’t realize is that the sounds you hear in movies are actually added months after the filming is done! That’s right, a lot of the sounds recorded on set are thrown away. All the footsteps, door slams, body falls, car crashes, grenade blasts… yes, there’s an art to putting all these sounds back together. This is where I come in. I obsess over finding the “right” sound. I hope I can help you with your project and shape the soundtrack in a way that tells your story.

Good Sound is Invisible
