TV sound mixer Blair Halver announces the creation and launch of tvSoundGuy.com, a social networking site dedicated to TV sound mixers who are looking to expand their circle of contacts and job opportunities. The site offers networking with other mix engineers, and enables members to post and circulate resumés, as well as buy and sell used gear.

“It’s a game changer for networking," says Halver from the set of Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C., where he is currently working. "It’s no longer just who you know or who knows you, but who you’re connected to or ‘friends’ with on tvSoundGuy.com.”

Halver describes the site as being "a little bit like Facebook, but the audience is specifically targeted to sound mixers and production companies that hire mixers."

TV sound mixers can use the site to circulate resumes, locate and connect with other mixers in their area, learn from more experienced mixers and mentor those who are new on the scene, use the online Classified Ad section to find another mixer to take over in a pinch, sell used gear and find great deals on new and used gear, and participate in discussions on the forum page.

TV producers can use the site to browse resumés and find a mixer that meets their needs.

“The key to landing TV mixing jobs is to expand your circle of contacts, something this site does through 'friending,'” Halver said. “I would have been able to get into the field faster if there had been a site like this when I was starting out.”
