Danny Hutchinson-Lifetime’s Lead Audio Engineer
Lifetime makes sure you see it all… and hear it all.
That is why you’ll see Danny Hutchison at your wedding. At Cincinnati State, Danny majored in audio engineering. His job is to make certain that every public utterance at the wedding is heard and understood on the film. That is his only task — He’s our dedicated audio engineer.
Why a dedicated sound engineer?
Let me give you an example.
You know that weddings mark a beginning. Equally, they are a summing up of what has gone before.
At many weddings, the father of the bride offers a toast. He wishes the couple Godspeed on their new journey. Then, his thoughts turn to his remembrances anc love for the child she was and the woman she has become. Suddenly, he finds himself overcome with emotion. He chokes back tears. He pauses to collect himself and then soldiers on, even though he falters. His voice is barely above a whisper. Everyone knows it is a precious moment, and they’re all holding their breath.
That is when Danny rides to the rescue.
Danny’s art and his years of experience ensure that nothing the father says is lost. The father’s words will be loud and clear for generations to come.
Danny is a key player in the Lifetime mix. Knowing that Danny is on the job allows the rest of us to concentrate on filming. This ability to focus exclusively on capturing only the visual, leaving the audio in Danny’s capable hands, is what accounts for the unique Lifetime look.
Below is an example of wedding audio captured separately and then married to the video seamlessly. Audio matters.
