The team is headed up by supervising sound editor Brad Jenkins, who works closely with sound designer Craig Henighan, sound-effects editor Jordan Wilby and music editor David Klotz, the re-recording crew, comprising Joe Barnett handing dialog and music, and Adam Jenkins handling sound effects.
Back Story on Stranger Things
In November of 1983, in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, 12-year old Will Byers vanishes mysteriously. His frantic mother, Hawkins police chief Jim Hopper and Will’s friends all try to find him. In their search,
Will’s friends discover a psychokinetic girl and a plot to hide the truth. Part sci-fi, part horror and part drama, this Netflix series pays homage to the eighties and young people coming of age.
