Portfolio: Various Video,
Film and Television Productions, Colorado & Beyond
Introduction from Nick. This page is NOT complete of every type of production that I have worked on in video production, film or television, but you can infer that my experience dates decades. There were several years experience of 35mm film, DAT tapes, Nagra reels and videotapes that were handed to clients that is not in this demo reel page.
Interviews & Colorado Corporate Video / Business Video Production
2 Camera Interviews with Canon C300 cameras:
Corporate Video Production, in Denver, Broomfield & Boulder Colorado areas
Telly Award, Best Corporate Video
Red Robin could not turn down the kitchen fans due to potential fires, and exhaust so there is a bit of that in the sound recording for some of the videos. As well, the restaurant needed to operate during B Roll so audio in the ordering scenes was for B Roll and not A Roll to heard audio.
This is a brief introduction showing a few samples from a longer corporate video production for Century Link. This company was currently being acquired and formerly known as Qwest Communications. The B-Roll give an introduction, and the interview follows. The b roll used the camera mic, as the video would be mixed with music later; however, however the interview used a wireless and shotgun microphone with an audio mixer to camera. Music was planned by the producer to cover B-Roll footage, and in other elements.
This pre-recorded to-camera address was to be played at a corporate conference for the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation by Microsoft. It was recorded with the Canon EOS C300 camera recorded in the Thornton CO area. The standard lav & boom & mixer to camera applied in this sound recording instance.
Alice Cooper, Samsung, HD TV Commercial
Corporate Video & Dual Use Broadcast Video
During the interview the lab could not turn down the labs fans due to lab specimens. But the video is yet another example of my varied work in production over the years.
JWT Americas Marines
This sampling of footage was recorded in Denver Colorado for a series of TV commercials. The location sound mixing & recording used wireless lavalieres and a shotgun mic for the camera audio. There are some scenes near roller coasters as well several other noisy sources, but this is the gig of a sound guy to do the best possible audio mixing and recording in spite of noisy environments.
This is a sampling of footage and not the completed pieces as the in-house production department handled editing. The audio on the waitress/server scene was a mix of the camera mic & the boom ; however the audio in this scene was not used in the end commercial or corporate video as the restaurant had to remain open during recording so there is ambient music and sound mixed in.
The principle audio is voice over / narration recording. As a sound recordist I have ample experience in post production, as well production location sound, as well audio engineering/mixing/editing for post production. Aside from boom operation and location sound mixer services my expertise includes that includes voice over recording, sound effects recording/foley, ADR, editing, including sound editing or video editing, audio sweetening among other expertise. Aside from providing sound guy services for production, I can also record sound recordings for music, radio, or other needs aside from my video production, film and television production expertise. So if you need a local Colorado freelance audio guy whom appreciates the value of a good clean sound mix & recording on location or in the studio, call Nick: (720) 299-2084
The video campaign featured Olympic Skater Caroline Zhang using green screen video. The campaigns were used in television commercials, web videos, Youtube.com advertising videos and also an employee communication / motivation video campaign. This was in an ice skating rink with a lot of ambient noise from the fans used to cool the ice, so again as a location sound mixer I’ll do the best job in spite of the environment to get you the cleanest, best possible sound recordings for your video or film or television production.
These television campaigns above advertised Good Feet, for these video productions were shot all over the metro area, including Denver, Englewood, Aurora, Greenwood Village, Lone Tree, Centennial CO among other places over the years. I do not have access to the other footage that included other to-camera video from the various talent. So this footage is only a portion of the entire TV commercial campaign.
Location sound man services were provided in the Climax Mine area, also near Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne and Dillon CO areas, as well Leadville CO. This is just a portion of the sales/marketing/advertising video production. This advertising video mostly boom operation, as well wireless lavalieres where used to mix & record the location sound. IN some portions of B Roll and shotgun mic, or lavaliere were used.
This is another sales & marketing video for a potential client base. This testimonial video was recorded in the Golden Colorado area.
Documentary, Film Production & Broadcast
This isn’t the entire program for time’s sake. I can also assist with lighting, camera and other production tasks aside from location sound on your crew, as in this program instance where my roles doubled & tripled on the camera crew. This was recorded in Littleton, Lakewood and the Denver CO metro areas, also including nearby unincorporated Jefferson County areas.
Aside from location sound, I provided assistant camera/AC in this instance, and can help you with other production tasks aside from location sound man services. I also provided additional gear for this shoot as well on the camera crew.
This is a portion of an entire program resolving the criminal case of Brent Brents, who terrorized Denver before being arrested in Glenwood Springs Colorado. I provided a several assignments to this production, as well in the police chase, the reenactment, the interviews, among B Roll detailing this true crime television story.
This is a sample that aired on Investigation Discovery. My experience includes many other Discovery shows, among our broadcast experience for several other networks. This was recorded in the Glennwood Springs CO area, as well Denver and some other Rocky Mountain areas in between.
This is not the entire film, as you need to watch this on Netflix to watch the entire film about Olympic Hopeful athletes who do and don’t make Team USA for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The camera used was an Arri Amira for this feature. I have time code and audio cables for all Arri Alexa models as well, the experience as a sound recordist, AC, as well operator with these cameras. So if you need a sound man and assistant camera whom knows this camera, among several others, I’m your got-to sound guy in Colorado or traveling. Much of this was recorded in Colorado Springs CO.
This documentary series was filmed with RED Epic Dragon cameras in Boulder, Louisville, Longmont, Niwot & Lafayette CO areas with gear. I also provided narration and voice over recording aside from B Roll and interview audio in this film. If you need a location sound recordist with extra lighting, grip and camera support gear, whom can also double as a gaffer, grip, AC or provide other production assistance, I provide these services as well. In this instance I provided gaffer, grip and location sound. I have the cables for all RED cameras as well in audio, as well sync.
Please look into other categories on this page as well to see other broadcast examples as well.
This is a mix of 35mm film and HD for the series. This footage was filmed & recorded in Monument Valley that spans Arizona into Utah. This was a mix of camera mic, as well lavalieres for the sound mixing.
This audio for the television & web based Ep required wireless lavalieres, and shotgun microphones for to-camera sound effects recording and to camera audio.
This location sound entailed a lavaliere & shotgun microphone.
This footage is the raw footage, including B Roll, interviews, and testimonial types approaches for the broadcast Travel Channel series The Forbes 500. This is a mix of footage of B-Roll (boom or camera mic), as well, interviews using lavalieres & boom mics in Vail, Beaver Creek, and Aspen Colorado locations.
The location sound mixing included use of lavaliere microphones, as well shotgun microphones, and some camera mic usage for the B-Roll.
This among other numerous programs for SPEED are in my professional portfolio over the years. Many networks call on me, Nick, Mister Photon for broadcast television location sound expertise in Colorado or where needed.
Aside from location sound (for decades dating to 1990) my skills go back this far in production with other expertise. I was hired as a ENG cameraman, also mixing audio as a one man band for the national news feed taking audio pre-mix from the podium & mult-box, then mixing it through my Sound Devices 664, then into camera. This, among other speeches I have covered, as well other types of politics include TV commercials, online campaigns, presidential speeches, among other political coverage. An assignment like the one listed above takes confidence in one’s skills, I am at the top of many call lists including NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, FOX, CBC, CNN Espanol among a few others. If you need a veteran sound guy with all types of location sound experience, as well can assist you with camera, I’m your go-to sound guy in Colorado, or traveling. I had to pad the audio down with the mixer to get better levels to the camera and out the to the uplink truck.
Before HD video & SD widescreen video, 4×3 standard definition video was the choice for professional video production. This is an older political television campaign before 16×9 aspect video was available. In spite, this production reflects professional quality with the challenger winning the election as well. Since this time Mister Photon Media has provided director of photography services, crew members and other production services to political producers and politicians among others, including several broadcast networks.
This is before and post game coverage for CBS NFL coverage for Pittsburgh & Broncos divisional playoff game. I have ample experience for NFL, NFL Films and other related programs for this network over the years, as well other networks covering sports like CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, Mountain West, PAC 10, Sunbelt Sports, Golf Channel, NBA/NBA Entertainment, PGA Tour Productions, among several others.
This is a mix of camera microphone and hand held microphone sources mixed & recorded.
This is a group of coverage of professional golfer and world #1 pro golfer (as of 12-2017) at the BMW Championship in Cherry Hills Village Colorado. The interviews relied on microphones whereas the tournament coverage samples, and B Roll relied on the camera mic as a sound recordist with a boom mic getting into the fairway is an unwanted intrusion on a golf course. This is a sampling of the entire tournament footage.
The original HD videotapes from the Panasonic HDX900 were given to the producers so this is the SD version of the HD video recorded in Vail Colorado for the Olympic Hall of Fame induction of Sarah Will.
This is a 3 camera shoot with Sony F3 cameras, with PL mount lenses for FOX Sports One for NFL coverage on former Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning. This is the SD version of the shoot that was originally recorded in HD. I seldom receive original footage as a sound recordist, except my audio recordings so replying on a friendly DP, crew or producer to get work samples has several years of omissions. So this page does not have every piece of my work professionally dating to the 1990’s. But you get the idea, my location sound mixing & recording is diligent and clean.
Coach Gary Barnett Interview
Feed The Children, NFL Players
(Nick) In this production that I was involved in spanned several areas including Denver, Lakewood, several eastern Colorado areas, some areas in the Rocky Mountains, and some other areas in the Denver metro area.

This is a sample from the reality television show called “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” airing on E! We had to place a lavaliere mic on him later in the shoot, as well, in the underwater scenes so some of the audio is from the shotgun microphone only, aside from the boom microphone (hence the reverb you hear in the swimming pool area). The rest of the footage was a behind the scenes approach to the show as the B Camera position.
Before HD television broadcasts and 16×9 SD video, SD 4×3 video was the standard. In Denver Colorado following Carmello Anthony, then playing for the Denver Nuggets. Aside from this reality television piece, Nick/Mister Photon Media has worked on several other factual entertainment pieces.
Live Shots, News & ENG
This is a shot you see with a side by side live television interview. You do not hear the questions, as they are being asked to the person on camera from the director by IFB on PL.

If you need a sound man whom has extra GoPro cameras, other gear including camera support gear like lighting, grip or other equipment aside from audio gear, call on me for your local Colorado area sound guy.
The last of this series of GoPro shots of these athletes.
This was a HD video shoot for Inside Edition. One of our segments focused on crime, as well the proximity to a certain business. In this scene of the shoot we used 3 GoPro cameras that were dash mounted in the police car. We did end up passing the other media from an additional camera from a pick up in the same shoot day so we could not incorporate this footage into this scene. The slating was done with a slate technique prior to the edited piece.
I won second place in the competition for Cut the Carbon, a carbon reduction program that was first proposed by the Environmental Defense Fund, before the Obama administration implemented it.
This is not the edited piece; however, it’s available.
This is sample from a PSA style approach portion of a broadcast TV commercial for Spain’s elections for the campaigning Spanish Socialist Party in favor of keeping the socialized health care system in place. This political ad showing the effects of a privatized health care system like Americas’ and how it affects those without health insurance or adequate income for catastrophe, in the case of her throat cancer.
Cancer Research Center
This is not the entire concert, just a few scenes.
Training Video Production / Educational Video / Demonstration Videos
I’ve been hired for several demonstration or training video for consumers or employees or other audience. I can also record voice overs to digital video recorders, cameras, or other recording devices. Often these videos are also called a demonstration video, education or training video production in production lingo. This videos audio mostly depends on the narration recorded for explanation to the audience of construction worker safety procedures.
This video production was produced for a construction and building company with an emphasis on safe building techniques and practices for OSHA, as well other related compliance practices. The video was recorded in the Fort Collins, as well Loveland CO areas. This videos location sound mostly relied on the talents to-camera appearances, as well, additional narration or VO recorded. All of these are in my location sound expertise, as well studio sound, and post production / editing sound skills. So if you need a sound guy & engineer or boom operator or something all of the above, call on me for your sound guy in Colorado.

School Evacuation Exercise, Pueblo West School District
(Nick Teti) This is mostly a mix of shotgun microphone audio and mixer audio to camera, along with a camera mic, as micing this many people would be impossible to do with this type of production that was a on-the fly evacuation exercise.
Older Video Productions, Film & Television
This video was shot in standard definition BetaCam SP that was the professional camera format at the time, aside from motion picture film. I have production experience dating to these cameras as well, the modern cameras of today. This video’s audio relied on recorded voice overs to guide the message to the audience.
Older Demo Reels
(Nick), This is montage of several video productions, including television and film productions I have worked on. The audio was replaced by a sound track to keep the audience from being jarred by the constant change in subject matter.
Demo Reel montage, part 2, Nick Teti & Mister Photon Media. This is an older montage sampling various work, but is not complete. The soundtrack is used in the replacement of location sound as the audio is not as jarring from production to production, shot to scene etc. Scroll up to other portions of this page to see videos with location sound mixed.
