The Filmmaker's Guide to Audio

Hey guys, my name is Brenden Bytheway. I’m a song writer, producer, and recording/mixing engineer. I’ve been able to have my music heard by over 1 billion people. I’ve been lucky enough to have songs featured in some of the biggest TV shows, worked with top celebrities, and some of the biggest names in the industry. I’ve also done lots of audio work for some of the world’s top brands. 

Working with these clients has taught me a lot about audio production and the film industry and I want to share some of the things i’ve learned with you.
