January’s Featured Sound Designer: Elliott Koretz
New year, new month, and of course, a new featured sound designer. This month our special guest is sound designer Elliot Koretz.
I was born and raised just outside Boston and got my start in the industry very early. I guess I was always fascinated with tv and movies. When I was fourteen a cable tv/public access facility opened in my hometown and I got a job there (sometimes volunteer sometimes paid) working in tv production. It was great exposure and training. A number of years later when my dad got a job transfer to the Los Angeles area I moved out to L.A. with the thought that this really is the ultimate place to be for the film industry. I had a degree in film and went looking for work. After what turned out to be a very short search I landed an entry level position at Walt Disney Studios. I worked in the mail room for and then I had an opportunity to get into the editing dept which started me on my my way to being a sound editor and designer.
I am married with two children, two birds and a dog.
