Jacob Ross has been collaborating in post-production audio for film & video since 1999.  He enjoys the patience & precision required for puzzling together disparate audio sources into a cohesive soundtrack, as well as the challenges of synchronizing sonic elements with a director's visual & emotive focus.  His award winning audio mixes, sound design, and compositions have been featured in festivals throughout the world including Sundance, Cannes, Berlinale, Currents New Media Santa Fe, SXSW, Cinema Texas International, New York Underground, Rotterdam International, CPH:DOX, Toronto Images, Humboldt International, Athens International, and many more.

Below is a partial list of projects & filmmakers he's had the honor of working with over the years.
