“Arranging sound to embellish and accent story points in films and television is my passion, pleasure, and career.” Mark Server has worked in the field of sound for over forty years, beginning at Universal Studios as a microphone boom operator in broadcast. He later joined Jim Alexander as his boom operator on films such as Coal Miners Daughter, Terms of Endearment, and Star Trek II, and worked with Gene Cantamesa on E.T. and Close Encounters. Server moved into post-production in the 1980s, at a time when post audio was transitioning from analogue to digital format. He began as an FX editor and, thanks to his knack for the new technology, was quickly promoted to Sound Supervisor. He has worked on a wide variety of shows, and received several Emmy nominations.
