(Hollywood, California--January 27, 2014) Post production sound company TODD-SOUNDELUX today announced that Music Mixer Joseph Magee has joined the organization, where he will lead the company’s strategic development of an expanded, integrated music services offering.
A highly regarded music specialist for feature film pre-record, production and post mixing for on-camera music, Magee has completed more than 80 feature film projects. His recent credits include Saving Mr. Banks, Metallica Through the Never
, and Pitch Perfect
. He is currently working on Blackbird

We see a meaningful opportunity in the market to create additional value for content creators by offering a more integrated suite of best-in-class solutions for creative post-production sound services and music services, which will enable us to partner with our clients from pre-production all the way through post-production,” said David F. Alfonso, the owner and chairman of TODD-SOUNDELUX. “Joseph Magee is a highly versatile and well-respected talent, one who is uniquely positioned to successfully bridge these various components of the filmmaking process, leveraging his vast experience to add tangible value along every step of the way.”
“Having worked extensively with Joseph Magee, I am excited to welcome him into the TODD-SOUNDELUX community,” said Kevin O’Connell, who in addition to working as a Re-recording Mixer at TODD-SOUNDELUX, also serves as the company’s Chief Creative Officer. “In the world of feature films, complex pre-record, music playback and live recording on set, are just some of the many areas of expertise where major studio clients have come to rely on Magee’s distinctive talent. It is a testament to his approach that, more often than not, Magee’s production clients will also ask him to follow the project from pre-production to final stem mixes in post. How a production approaches sound and music at the very early stages of pre-production influences the ability to predictably budget and manage costs, and, ultimately, the success of the whole venture.”
“I see my role as bridging the sometimes separate functions of production and post-production,” said Joseph Magee. “When a filmmaker brings me in early for the pre-production process, I can develop a comprehensive template for the technical music needs of the project – a process which considers the unique requirements and considerations of the story, talent and every department that will touch the project, all the way through the final sound mix. As a small dedicated team, we coordinate the creative efforts of the music producers, supervisors or musical directors and guarantee the safe arrival of their elements to picture, for final; maintaining creative and financial accountability. The musical, sonic and sync to picture benefits are significant, enabling the re-recording team to complete the final sound mix with amazing results.”
Some of Magee’s other notable credits include The Lone Ranger, The Muppets, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides; Iron Man 2; Hannah Montana: The Movie; Into the Wild; I Can Do Bad All By Myself; Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert; Spider-Man 3; High School Musical 3; Ali;
