Frank Montano

Frank A. Montaño began his career as an engineer for Quad Eight console manufacturing in 1984 before moving over to Cannon Films in 1986. As a part of the engineering staff that was responsible for building the post-production sound facility, Montano, upon completion of the project, was given the opportunity to begin his feature film mixing career.

Making a name for himself, Montano caught the eyes and ears of Hollywood, by earning forty plus film credits by the age of twenty-four. He has worked at some of the most prestigious sound facilities in Hollywood and has mixed numerous films all over the world. 

Montano, who calls Universal home since 2001, now works with mixing partner Jon Taylor on the Hitchcock Theater.
