Old Guy – short form series
Mixed this comedy series about ageism in media, the worked involved sound fx, creating ambient and spaces for the scenes, dialogue cleaning and restoration, mixed for Theater and Streaming.
SYNOPSIS: Harry — played by Roger Burton (Baskets, Fargo, Shameless, The Tonight Show) — is going back to acting later in life, after raising his family and retiring from his traditional job. The show looks at his relationships with his writer wife (played by his real-life spouse, novelist Gabrielle Burton) who tries to advise him on the value of the jobs he takes, and with his agent, Peri Gilpin (Frasier), who is more interested in her commission than in what types of roles he plays. In each episode, Harry is challenged by playing an undeveloped character type, which humorously highlights different stereotypes about old age. OLD GUY will provoke thought & conversation — and it’s a good laugh.
