“It was an absolute pleasure to work with The Backlot Studios on my film ‘The Gateway’. The team of Mark D'Angelo, James Ash and Christian Scallan created a truly incredible soundscape for my film which I feel has greatly enhanced the overall story. I like my films to be collaborative efforts and the team’s sound-mix advice was highly useful and greatly appreciated. Without doubt, The Gateway is my best film yet and The Backlot Studios played a significant role in that achievement”.

- John V. Soto Director/Producer - Filmscope Entertainment
