From Major Brands to Film Festivals: Kenney brings field expertise to join the Dallas Based Creative Agency.
Imagine a media production where the sound could be better. The dialogue is muffled, the background noise is overwhelming, and the sound effects are lackluster. This detracts from the overall experience, leaving the audience uninterested and disengaged.
Now, imagine a film or video production where the sound is crisp, clear, and perfectly balanced. The dialogue is easy to understand, the background ambiance is tastefully used to enhance the scene, and the sound effects are dynamic and engaging. This creates an immersive experience for the audience, keeping them invested in the story and feeling right there in the moment.
This is where Dallas artist Kenney comes in, the latest addition to the team at Altered State Productions. As a talented location sound mixer and boom operator with over five years of experience, Spencer is passionate about bringing a creative vision to life with sound. His attention to detail is sure to bring a new creative angle to future work at Altered State.

The team caters to diverse industries, including film, video game, and podcast production, among others, which require professional audio services.
The company's seasoned audio engineers and composers collaborate to produce tailor-made tracks and soundscapes that align with the project's specific needs. Additionally, they offer a vast collection of pre-made music and SFX for instant use. Interested clients can explore the company's portfolio to get an idea of their capabilities. Altered State offers consultations to explore how they can leverage the power of sound to bring clients’ projects to life.
As a new addition, Spencer's portfolio spans the gamut, with credits that include major brands and publications such as eBay, JBW, SMU University, and CRWNMAG. He has also received recognition for his work at film festivals such as the LES Film Fest in NYC, Dallas Video Fest, Dallas International Film Fest, and KERA's Frame of Mind.
