The original Sonic Shepherd in Los Angeles, California
My name is Bret Johns and I'm a sound designer based in Los Angeles California. For the last 6 years I was the senior sound designer for Marvel Heroes MMO. I've worked in video games, television, and film since 2003, but this is my official launch into recording and releasing sound libraries.
Elephants In The Room is the the first library to be released under the Sonic Shepherd label. My first exposure to a high quality sound effects library date back to my roots at Soundelux in Hollywood. I could get lost for days listening to the collection they had on their server. As an independent sound designer I've had to take some creative steps to do more with less, but it was easy to see the advantage they had with such an incredible library. Creativity still plays a large role in the work that I do today, but I’ve learned that clean, inspirational, unique recordings help shape that creativity and make my job as a sound designer much easier. My goal for this and all future Sonic Shepherd projects is to produce sound libraries for other sound designers with that perspective in mind.
