Ever since his graduation from The University of the West of England, Balazs has worked as a freelance sound person for TV and film productions small to big.
His  dedication to recorded sound is rooted in having worked with Simon Clark, Jo Vale, Simon Bishop (in the UK) and Mac Ruth (in Europe).
Balazs is interested in acoustic ecology, immersing himself within the sounds (and noises) homo erectus, animalia and nature produces on Planet Earth.
His hobby is recording (and listening to) acoustic music*.

Career Highlights

His longtime business partner gave him the final push: in 2015 Balazs started production sound mixing for films.
Amongst other things he has been helping to bring Watney home, he saw Benghazi set on fire, he saw replicant K searching through his past, and he has joined the Fremen to hear the rumble of sandworms on Arrakis.
