Michael Odmark is a sound editor living in Brooklyn, NY.
Michael’s love of sound goes back to high school, when he converted a former radio studio in a church attic into a recording studio. He followed his passion for music to Nashville, TN, where he quickly landed a job at Sputnik Sound and began producing records for independent singer/songwriters like Natalie Prass, Alva Leigh, Andrew Combs, and Aaron Roche.
His career in Nashville garnered him a cover story in the prestigious recording magazine Tape Op, where his work was described as possessing a “distinct touch anchored by a definite, if unobtrusive creative vision. Odmark possesses an unmistakable flair for crafting spacious, earthy mixes and brings a fresh perspective to recording acoustic-based roots music.”
Pivoting his career focus from music to tv/film, Michael moved his operation to Brooklyn, NY in 2013. He helped to launch The Close-Up, the official podcast of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, which he produced, edited, and hosted through 2019. To date, the show has aired over 170 episodes and averages 4,000 downloads per week.
Since 2014, Michael has worked as a sound designer, dialogue editor, and re-recording mixer on various feature films, tv series, and short films for studios/networks like Apple TV +, HBO, Netflix, and Showtime.
Michael is a member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild.
