Helene Machat Michael
Helene has been around the entertainment industry all her life. Growing up with her father, Martin J Machat, a prominent entertainment attorney, she became immersed in the music industry. After meeting Paul in 1990, Helene began to learn about the film and television industry. Today Helene is the Operations Manager for NYC Post Group along with being our running coach and personal chef.
Tod has been mixing audio since he was old enough to complete his first cross-fade. He's a graduate of NYU with a degree in Music and Technology. Tod has been a journeyman of sorts working in every aspect of audio post over the past two decades and on more projects then you would want him to list (although he will upon request ). He has worked on award winning films, TV shows, commercial, multimedia projects and promos. He prides himself on getting any and all projects out the door with the exceptional quality his clients expect, in spec and within the clients usual or unusual tight time frame. He believes that a quality relationship along with communication is paramount to the successful relationship he has with his clients. Tod feels this is the time for the rise of the audio engineer, be warned!
With many years of experience under his belt, Paul has sound edited, designed and mixed countless Feature Films and Television shows. He has been nominated for multiple Motion Picture Academy and Emmy awards. Paul was honored with an Emmy award for his assistance in the development of the NoNoise™ restoration software. He has restored and salvaged many well-known films, as well as helping to keep the world safe by making problematic reality shows intelligible. Although he has won Maverick and ProMax awards, he cherishes the prestigious (and possibly created for him) "Frankenbite" award for making coherent sentences where none existed before. Paul brings ideas and creativity to each project and his primary goal is to fulfill the director's vision. Paul loves a challenge and has a reputation for being unflappable.
