Credits include 'The Golden Compass'

John Rodd has worked on more than 200 films and television programs as an orchestral recording engineer, music scoring mixer and music recordist. His credits include “The Golden Compass,” “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” and “The Polar Express.”

The composer I love…

- has written great music using a live orchestra and is not too beaten up and rendered downtrodden by the director.

The composer drives me crazy…

- when he brings unorganized audio files brought to a session — plus the files are clipping and distorting.
