Lucien’s quality, experience, facility, and personality keep me coming back!
— -Daniel Woltosz, Director (Do Not Reply)
They worked magic on our dialogue and saved us from doing ADR on our whole film.
— Brad Todd, Director (True Image)
Lucien’s method begins with the story, but then he employs the art of sound to take the film to the next level. A master technician, his dialogue is particularly exceptional. But his ability to offer a range of creative approaches to a scene is what makes him stand apart. He’s also a lovely person and someone you want around during the final stressful phase of filmmaking!
— Laura Nix, Director (Walk, Run, Cha Cha, The Yes Men are Revolting)
