Mark Berger is a supervising rerecording sound mixer who has won four Academy Awards for some of the most innovative uses of sound in the film business (Apocalypse Now, The Right Stuff, Amadeus, The English Patient). Unlike many of today's sound editors, his craft is about subtlety, not the sheer power of loud soundtracks. His many awards and film credits speak for themselves. Berger is part of the generation of Northern California filmmakers that emerged in the early seventies around Francis Ford Coppola and who did not then go to Hollywood but instead, with the help of filmmakers like Coppola, Saul Zaentz and George Lucas helped build a viable filmmaking community here in the Bay Area. Berger is currently an adjunct professor at UC Berkeley.
