Production Sound Mixer
Thomas Popp is a Production Sound Mixer with over 15 years of experience in Production Sound. He has worked on countless movies and television shows, as well as an ENG Sound Mixer on multiple documentaries, reality shows, and live-streamed events where sound is imperative to record right the first time when it cannot be captured again.
He is the owner of his own private school VideoMantis.com, dedicated to helping Production Sound Mixers in the union world create better synergy for their department. He has traveled to China, Canada, and Mexico to teach master classes for aspiring professionals in those regions as well as many different schools around the US.

Currently, Thomas works as Marketing Director at TrewAudio.com, a retail location with multiple facilities around the world. He helps to educate people on the newest gear coming out and is always available for a 1-on-1 mentorship to discuss packages and gigs you may be working on that have sound requirements. Thomas LOVES brainstorming and making sure all your sound bases are covered before you go on your next gig.
Thomas will hook you from the moment you take his courses and livestreams. He lives and breathes sound, and enjoys sharing the theories that will help you tell your story better. His first words when walking in the door were, “I am not here to teach our students how to record sound. I am here to tell them how to help capture the performance better.”
