Nioki Aquino

Nioki has been a huge movie and music fan all his life. Having a part in putting them together to create something new and entertaining is quite a privilege, he says.

He really loves editing and mixing, as he learns something new, or gets better at something with, with every new project. He also loves it when a spot he's worked on gets received very well. He enjoys the job when it presents itself as a puzzle to him.

His advice for those who want to enter the field is to expand the scope of things you listen and watch to, and learn to appreciate genres of film and music that you don't usually consume — then, obsess about how they get made, knowing you have access to the same tools the pros are using to create.
