A lot of Mitchell Reilly Pictures reputation for authentic, unique and occasionally comical videos stem from Nick’s creative mind. He is the idea guy.

OUR SOUND TEAM

A vital & often overlooked aspect of video production is sound. People can forgive YouTube quality video, but they will not tolerate bad audio. At MRP we are proud to have formed strong partnerships with Drew Williams, from W Sound Inc, and Jeremy Bundy from Pure Mind Studios. Both men operate top notch sound design companies in Niagara and are a part of all of our projects. On set both Jeremy & Drew are excellent sound recordists, with experience in television industry, specifically on Degrassi: the Next Generation, Rookie Blue, Lost Girl and commercial work. During post production they will ensure the audio is crisp, clean and add sound effects & foley design to enhance whatever mood.
