NoiseFloor's New Partner
January 7, 2020 by Screenmag
Chicago-based audio company NoiseFloor is adding a new partner for the first time since it opened its doors in 2005, industry veteran Bryen Hensley.
“This was a long time coming. When Bryen joined the company in January 2017 this was on the table, but we took our time with it and made sure the time was right," says Coken. A 27 year veteran in the post audio business, Hensley has worked in a number of post houses and now brings that skill and knowledge to NoiseFloor. “We have a lot of new things happening this year and we really wanted Bryen’s input on an ownership level," says Vanadia.
“When Bryen joined NoiseFloor in 2017 he immediately became a part of our family because we had worked with him in the past. He brings a different voice to the conversation and I am really excited to see where we go as a company not only in 2020, but long term as well,” says Katie Waters, NoiseFloor Creative Producer.
Hensley’s relationship with Coken and Vanadia goes back a long way.
“I’ve known Cory forever, we practically grew up in the business together. Jamie and I have known each other for at least 20 years. I worked with them a lot over the years in different capacities so I am very familiar with their company and things they can do. Coming to NoiseFloor three years ago was a very comfortable fit for me, and now becoming part owner was just a natural progression for us all.” “This company is fearless, there isn’t anything in the world of audio that we are afraid to take on. This team is the best in the business and that is a big part of why I was so eager to do this,”
NoiseFloor continues to build on their outstanding reputation in all aspects of sound. Last year they completed four feature films, including Girl on Third Floor, as well as Tom of Your Life. They continue to do great things in the video game world with their work on Bungie Studios’ Destiny video game, and they are hard at work on a new project from a local video game developer. Their commercial work counts in the many hundreds of spots.
NoiseFloor is a full service production and post production audio company. The current staff has two location audio mixers/sound editors, Victoria Salazar and Jeff Ryan; Creative Producer, Katie Waters; Composer/ Music Supervisor, Devin Delaney; and Sound Designer/Mixer Stosh Tuszynski.
