Word in the biz is...
I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Jeffory Haddad for the past 7 years. Jeff’s work makes my job as a re-recording mixer easy. His material is full-bodied, clean and as a result, requires little to no ADR. His attitude is always positive, upbeat and genuinely friendly. He's visited the mixing stage on numerous occasions to be sure all was well with his tracks. Very rare. I just hope I get to work with him again. Highly recommended.
Jeff is a tremendous asset to our team. He is meticulous, positive, and a joy to work with on set. Jeff is always prepared, engaged and ready for any challenges we throw his way. Sound can be demanding at times and I am always impressed with Jeff's ability to manage those obstacles. He is respected and loved by our entire cast and crew.
I've had the pleasure of working with Jeff and his staff for five seasons. Jeff handles challenges during the course of a workday in a very professional and caring manner. Jeff's work throughout the day is seamless and he has a great passion for his profession as a production sound mixer for the motion picture industry. He has a great passion for his family and co-workers, not to mention love of music. I consider it a real pleasure to be able to work with Jeff and his crew.
Jeff worked for me during a production for Marvel Studios, which included night shoots in the freezing desert. Yet, he was always professional, innovative and easy to work with.
In physics, sound is a vibration that propagates as a typically audible mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through a medium such as air or water. In physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Haddad as our production sound mixer on many episodes of the drama series, Pretty Little Liars. We have been fortunate enough to have as many as 25 episodes per season, which makes for a sometimes long and grueling schedule. Through it all, Jeff has always been extremely conscientious, professional, talented, and all accompanied with an unusually wonderful attitude. From my experience with Jeff, it has been almost non-existent to need ADR due to noise, even though we shoot on the WB lot which is a very noisy location. I value Jeff as a team member and look forward to working with him in the future. I would enthusiastically recommend him as a production sound mixer, without reservation.
Jeff is a 1st call for me. I enjoy working with him and it is very clear that the cast and crew do also. He is always fair and honest and passionate about his work. He is a great sound mixer.
Jeff delivers a solution driven sound team I can always count on to get the job done unobtrusively, be a fun part of the process and most importantly, less time in ADR for the actors.... "CPT" CLEAN PRODUCTION TRACK! Take him if you can get him.
As we wrap up 7 seasons of Post Production on Pretty Little Liars it seems like a good time to let you know what a pleasure it is to have you as our production sound mixer.
Thank you! In a total of 160 episodes we have never had to re-record any dialogue because of recording quality. If we’ve ever had an issue with the mix track, your ISOs have always saved the day. Even in the greenhouse set with glass walls, a glass ceiling and a concrete floor you gave us excellent sound. Your tracks are clean and closely recorded with good consistent levels and no blowouts. This feat is even more remarkable given that the show is shot directly underneath the flight path of Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.
Additionally, you are nothing but thorough on your sound reports. They are always very detailed and that saves us valuable time in post.
That you manage to deliver such high quality sound to us day after day with a smile on your face and a ready sense of humor only adds to the long list of reasons why we were so happy to have you as our mixer. You will be the standard that I use to measure production mixers from this point on.
Thank you so much for your consistently excellent sound. I can’t begin to tell you how much time, effort and money you save us here in post, but I can tell you that you, and your work, are most appreciated.
