Rick Sherman of Sherman Sound Suite

Based in Orange County, CA, Rick Sherman Divides his full-time musical career into two very different, yet musically related categories: live musical performance, and music and audio production, including composing and recording music for video, film and multimedia (as well as providing several other audio services for the media industry).

Pamela first met Rick when working on her award-winning documentary Colorblind. Pamela and Rick worked so well together that she chose Sherman Sound Suite to be the recording studio for the many soldier's voices in their dramatic WWI diary accounts. Together they recorded over forty-plus voice over artists performing these dramatic readings. Peak then selected which "voices" would tell each part of the dramatic story of the Polar Bears.

Rick Sherman's work on the project didn't stop at recording the voices. He wrote original music at several points in the film, arranged music and performed all sound engineering, sound effects, music editing as well as designing all authentic WWI gun sounds in each dramatic battle scene within the film.

Pamela and Rick's creative collaboration adds much to the emotional "feel" of the film Voices of a Never Ending Dawn.
