About Sound Recordist Henri Rapp
I’m Henri Rapp, a production sound recordist for TV, film, & commercial video production. Working as a sound recordist in Buffalo, New York is only three and a half hours away from my homebase in Cleveland. Ultimately I believe my job as a Sound Recordist is all about capturing performances; Whether that’s a documentary interview, comedian on stage, a musical performance, or actors in a narrative film…..it’s all about capturing those moments.
I have worked on projects in nearly every production style & workflow and I’m ready to integrate into your crew. Prior to getting into the world of video production I initially got my start in a commercial recording studio where I produced music and did audio post-production. This experience still shapes the way I approach audio today. Now having more than a decade of professional experience as a sound engineer, hiring me ensures the job gets done right. Having experience and a strong technical knowledge base to draw on allows me to deliver no matter what the video production style is from comedy specials, to narrative films, commercials, and much more.
