Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring the award-winning Sound Supervisor for film and television, David Kitchens.
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
David Kitchens moved from Texas to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a successful musician. But in an unexpected and serendipitous turn of events, he took a job as janitor at a Burbank-based recording facility. In just eight years, he rose from janitor to owner of Juniper Post studio, transforming it into a multi-award-winning facility that produces and mixes sound for film and television.
Even as a child, David Kitchens was fascinated with sound and sound effects, experimenting with his Walkman to record everyday noises just for fun. As a boy, he studied the trumpet and dreamt of becoming a world-class musician. After college, he moved from Texas to California in hopes of trumpeting himself to fame. To pay the rent, he took a job at a small post-production recording studio in Burbank—a city that is home to the likes of Warner Brothers and Disney. David eagerly learned everything he could about professional recording and, in just eight years, rose through the ranks to become the owner of Juniper Post. At a critical juncture when digital home recording took off and many commercial recording studios were going out of business, David shifted his company’s focus to Foley, creating sound and sound effects for film and television. His early fascination with sound, coupled with his technical expertise in recording and mixing, proved the recipe for success. To date, Juniper Post has produced sound for hundreds of films and television shows, winning numerous awards, including an Emmy for sound editing and working on a roster of Oscar-winning films. After listening to Juniper Post’s work on one of his films, Director James Cameron turned to David and told him, “This is the best sounding thing I’ve worked on.”
