Gateway Sound

A documentary

Gateway Sound is a documentary highlighting the issues of operating a high to mid-market recording studio in an age of changing technology, a changing music business, and the increasing prevalence of home studios. 

It shows how musicians are currently recording, and how they are using studios of all shapes and sizes. 

The film focuses on how the studios of that market have adapted to making business work in the 2010's. Gateway Sound also gives a glimpse into the history and workings of prominent commercial recording studios.

The Film is Complete!

I'm happy to announce that Gateway Sound is finished!  Big thanks to Brian Singler for the last piece of the puzzle which is the color grading. 

The other big news is that it will be playing at the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase the week of July 13th.  I'll update the page with an exact day and showtime.  I want to see you all filling that theater!  

I can't possibly extend enough gratitude to all of the people who helped make this film a reality. It means SO much to me....all the effort that was put in to this by a lot of people.  I couldn't have done it without all of you. So again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Stay tuned on this page and the Facebook page for further updates where you can see the film if you can't make the Showcase.  Our next step is to look into distribution on digital platforms.

Keep making music!

Steven Slate Interview


I just got back from LA after completing an awesome interview with Steven Slate. Steven was of course, an awesome and gracious guy and took time out of his busy schedule to let me interview him. Got to see the inner workings of Slate Digital and talk to him about his experiences in an ever changing music and audio business. Can't wait for you all to see this! I should hopefully be putting up a teaser with Steven soon.

We Hit Our Kickstarter Goal!

Guess what? Gateway Sound hit its goal on Kickstarter! Thank you SOOO much to all of the backers, I can't thank you all enough! Now that we know there is no doubt that this film is happening, lets try and take it from a good film to an AMAZING film! There are 10 days left. LETS MAKE IT TO $5,000! I know we can do it!

I've got some other great news, but I'll save that for later....
