The animated short film, “If Water Had Eyes.” Animation by Alan Becker with sound by Daniel Chase.
My name is Daniel Chase, and I’m a sound editor based in Southern Oregon. My interest in audio started as a kid during the ’90s; recording waterfalls, footsteps, and punching sounds in my backyard with my first Panasonic hand-held cassette recorder. Technology has changed a lot since then, but it was a great training ground for me, opening my eyes and ears to the amazing world of sound.
After I graduated, I became the audio production lead for Phoenix Online Studios, producing audio for video games and a few short films. Currently, I’m a full-time audio engineer at theDove TV and Radio. As a sound designer, I record all of my own sounds, and my sound design and Foley work is original and unique for every project.
