Paul Rodgers

Paul is a noted Chicago sound designer and mixer, currently calling the Chicago Recording Company (CRC) home.  His career has spanned Radio, TV and film and includes several award winning ad campaigns and shorts.

Paul is a Columbia College Chicago grad with a B.A. in Communications / Sound Engineering.  His audio career began at CRC, working mostly on national radio and TV spots with an array of agencies and products, such as Cap N' Crunch cereal, Cadillac, Kroger, McDonalds, and Miller Beer.

Paul eventually moved on to the audio division of Avenue Edit, a well-known Chicago editorial post house.  Some of his work there included ad campaigns for Sears, Aquafina, Payless, JC Penney, Corona, Disney and Wisconsin Lottery. Being  part of an editorial house also provided exposure to others forms of audio, thus his long format workload eventually took shape. As a designer and mixer, several of those shorts and films have gone on to successful TV and festival runs, including HBO, PBS, Sundance, SXSW, Chicago Film Festival and acclaim through Rolling Stone magazine. Some of these include Odd Shoe, Estes Avenue, and Plaster Caster.

After a lengthy stay at Avenue Edit, Paul returned to CRC in late 2008.  Since then he has had the pleasure of expanding his film roles while continuing to be a part of the ad community.  His latest work includes Eckrich, Walgreens, Marlboro, Advocate Health and his most recent film, One Small Hitch.
