What I value in the people I make documentaries with is commitment and support on top of skill. When I work with Mike, I know I’m working with someone who is eager to join in the film making process -- not just sell me his technical expertise. He’s not only an excellent professional, but a colleague. He makes my work better, any way he can. You can’t ask for more than that.

“I prefer to surround myself with professionals who love what they do, collaborate well, and “own" their work. Mike Duncan is all of these. He brings years of talent and a keen understanding that sound is equally as important as picture - sometimes more so - in a documentary. He is a vital and valuable member of our team.”

I have had the pleasure of having Mike mix many of the documentaries that I have edited over the past 10 years or so. He always pays a great deal of attention to detail, brings a great ear to the process and most importantly, is fully focused on the story and its nuances. And he’s a nice guy to boot.
Having worked with Mike Duncan for close to a decade, I've always gotten top quality results, without paying a premium for inflated overhead. Mike and his team have worked on a range of my projects from comedy to music to drama, and the experience is consistent:
They're dedicated, professional, brilliant.
As an editor, I’ve worked with Mike for many years on a wide variety of projects. He is an outstanding collaborator at all stages and always goes above and beyond in the quality of the material he delivers. He cares about the projects he works on and is consistently committed to high standards, even when deadlines are tight. I always look forward to working with him!
How many directors actually look forward to an audio mix? Working with Mike is a pleasure. His keen ear, easygoing nature and attention to detail have helped enhance the production value of all my recent projects . Added bonus - his new playback suite feels luxurious and the coffee is hot.

"I've had the pleasure of working with Mike and his team on a number of projects now and I would have a hard time going anywhere else for post sound work. On each project he amazes me his creativity, the quality of the sound, the ability to fix what seems to be unusable sound, his commitment to the work and last but not least, he is a pleasure to be around. As a seasoned film and tv editor, I'm picky about sound and Mike is just about the only guy I trust to get each project sounding as great as it possibly can."
"Mike Duncan is an engineer who simply makes my music sound so much better. He senses what I'm going for and makes me sound brilliant. And the sessions are a blast. I can't imagine anyone else I'd rather have behind the board. Highly recommended!"
