Graduating in 2003 with a 4.0 GPA and perfect attendance, Carlos Sanches has really taken his career to a new level, and has also won an Emmy! Currently he is working as a re-recording mixer in the post production industry, and took some time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions for us!
Did your internship go as expect?
My internship at Signet Sound was a bit disappointing, but not unexpected. I did however learn to make a very nice fruit basket and bread tray! I found that in order to actually get somewhere in my career, I had to take the initiative myself and find a better job. I finished my internship hours at a small local music studio, Sanctuary Studios where I was able to actually do the work i was trained to do at the Conservatory. A big studio internship sure sounds great and is appealing, but rarely leads to jobs at that studio. Interns are simply too inexperienced to get on right away. Working in a smaller studio, where you can gain real world experience is much more valuable when you are seeking that BIG studio job.
