"What I enjoy the most about my craft is collaborating with filmmakers and honing in on each of their unique storytelling approach. It's all about focusing the audience's attention by the use of special sounds and methods of sonic expression. I love that there are no rules when it comes to sound editing and design. It's so much fun playing in the ‘sonic sandbox’ to develop the most flavorful environment possible, fun stuff." Hecker’s introduction to sound occurred while he worked as a driver and apprentice at Angel Editorial (later Blue Light Sound). He spent 12 years establishing his career at Blue Light, and went on to work independently for a decade, furthering his knowledge and passion for the sound industry. Following stints at Todd-AO and Soundelux, he served as Director of Sound Editorial and Supervising Sound Editor/Designer for Universal Studios Editorial for another 12 years before joining Formosa Features in the fall of 2014.
