My Story

My Journey from a Sound Assistant to a Sync Sound Engineer


Zahir Bandukwala

Just after college I joined a Sound studio and started working for music director, Sandesh Shandilya, where I set up his music room and studio.

Later on I completed my Sound engineering and acoustics course from Mumbai University.

A few years later I met Kunal Sharma, my mentor, I assisted Kunal for a couple of films, when I finally started getting my own independent projects as a Sync sound engineer. 
As a way of upping my skills, I have now ventured into Film Mixing and have started to freelance as a film mix engineer also.
Oh and by the way! other than Sound I am also a certified Drone pilot and am running a small drone company by the name of

Challenges at Guilty

Working as a Production Sound mixer

The challenging part about this project was to maintain the Netflix techinical specifications and their choice high quality standards of equipment such as the microphones and audio recorders.

Also my team and me had to maintain a seemless sync between cameras and recorders with numerous timecode devices on the set.

Ruchi Narain, a musically inclined director, preferred that I record most of the actor’s musical acts on the set as much as possible on a challenging Delhi’s weather.
