Meet our sound designers

We are very pleased to introduce the two sound design creatives who will share their craft in our next virtual workshop, ‘Sound design: The power to simulate world building’. 

On Friday 1 April, Serge Lacroix and Liam Whiting will share their expertise with Year 4-6 students in a virtual workshop hosted by the ACTF and ACMI Education.

Ahead of the session, we asked Serge and Liam to introduce themselves and to share a sneak peek of the content in our upcoming workshop.

"Originally from Montréal, Canada, I have been working in sound since I was 19 years old. Over the years, I have designed and created sound backgrounds and mixes for television shows, movies, documentaries, and commercials, as well as mixing several studio music albums. I have been in Australia for 25 years and I founded and own a production company whose focus has been non-fictional TV programming - you might know it better as reality TV. Try watching a TV show or movie without the sound and you’ll see how important sound is to the whole experience."

- Serge Lacroix

"Hello! I’m Liam Whiting, a Sydney-born composer and sound designer. Sound and music have always been an important part of my life, having played music from a young age. While studying sound and music design at UTS, I collaborated with animators, discovering a love for composing and storytelling. I joined Post Op Group with Serge in 2018 and have since been involved in many television and feature productions. Hardball is a heart-warming and hilarious series. We would like to show you how we brought this show to life, through sound design."

- Liam Whiting
