About David

David Stinson is an Audio Engineer, Writer, Producer, Musician and for many years a Post-Production Supervisor.
After graduating College David began his career as an assistant and then recording engineer working with a multitude of acts before fame came calling for them (KD Lang, Jane Siberry)! Creating and collaborating with artists from across the musical spectrum David transitioned from small independent music to working with major label artists at one of the largest studio facilities in North America (Sounds Interchange now Technicolour Toronto).
Filled with the desire to branch out and find new challenges David transitioned to Film and Television Post as a dialogue recordist for cartoons (Beetlejuice, XMen, etc) and foley mixer for television drama (nominated for MPSE for Robocop the Series). But the siren song of commerce was loud and he soon moved to commercial work and eventually Broadcast television at Alliance Atlantis and later Shaw Media. There he won several Promax, BDA and New York Festival awards for both Sound Design and Writing. David was also profiled in industry magazine Professional Sound.
After 20 years of Broadcast television as a Post Audio Supervisor (successfully launching brands like HGTV, History and Food Network to the Canadian market) David sought new creative vistas. He has now redefined himself writing spec scripts, treatments and pitches that he has been lucky enough to sell to numerous production companies. He is currently in development with two animated series that he can’t wait to talk about!
David still mixes (he has just finished the pilot Day Players for FYI Productions) and is a fixture at many top studios in Toronto. He has worked on a variety of content from large format (Rolling Stones: At The Max) to Broadcast (Holmes on Homes), Features (I Have Heard the Mermaids Singing, LOTR), Commercials , Podcasts and Webvideo (SwitchBoard) and of course cartoons.
Proud father of two and occasional amateur puppeteer David continues to search for creative collaborations to bring new voices to the world.
