Ep 39 - How To Be A Composer, Sound Designer, And Sound Supervisor For Award-Winning Films - Jacob Bloomfield-Misrach

Jacob Bloomfield-Misrach is a composer, sound designer, and sound supervisor. After getting his start in a music conservatory at the age of 10 he continued a path of musical study, completing a dual degree in Classical Clarinet and Jazz Guitar Performance at NYU. Jacob then integrated himself into the New York music scene by performing in dozens of ensembles and touring the East Coast.

Discovering a love of composition and sound design, Jacob formed the post production company IMRSV Sound. Expanding that company nationally and partnering with Berkeley Sound Artists, Jacob now oversees 100 projects per year for clients like Marvel, Google, Apple, and Facebook. He is also a busy composer and enjoys scoring films for ambitious filmmakers. He recently composed the score for the Slamdance Official Selection, "Majnuni," and handled sound for the 2020 Sundance Opening Night Film and Audience Choice Award Winner, "Crip Camp," which is on Netflix and was executive produced by the Obama's production company, Higher Ground.
