About John

John March – Owner JM Media Services LLC,  Media Consultant and Producer, Sound Mixer, Sound Designer, Editor, Social and environmental activist.

For the last 40 years I have been working freelance as an audio craftsman/technologist, Producer and A/V technology consultant, as well as a session musician, in multiple areas of expertise and development, and I am currently focused on creating opportunities that utilize my aggregate skill-sets and diverse professional experience to help solve problems that serve the greater good, and supports the community. I am also currently an adjunct professor at University of Colorado Denver teaching Recording Arts and Sound Design for Media.

As an Audio and Video craftsman and Music Producer/Mixer, I am able to solve complex problems and function as a liaison between fiscal, technical, logistical and creative team members. My specialties include advanced creative problem solving and consulting, team building and production methodology, and utilizing cutting-edge and evolving technologies. I own a state of the art Protools audio Mix bay and a Video Bay with both Adobe Premiere and Finalcut editing suites and own a large sound design and FX library with the most current tools and software for Sound design. I am connected to the world here in Longmont via Fiber optic cable, which allows me to move large data files around quickly.  I also have extensive experience in Post production and mixing for: Music production, Sound design, Haptic design, Youtube postproduction and editing workflow, VR/AR as well as traditional Production and Post production workflow and methodology for Live Streaming, Film and TV.  My top priority is always to bring out the best in the people I work with, in order to create the best possible end product.  So many in the Arts and in Media production have been challenged by the pandemic and the ripple effect on opportunity and access. I believe that the most important work I can be doing is helping to support my fellow artists. musicians, videographers and small business owners as we negotiate these turbulent times. I am also currently an adjunct professor at University of Colorado Denver teaching Recording Arts and Sound Design for Media.

Projects in development:
Aside from my works as a Producer, mixer and artist I am developing two projects: 1) A short film about the re-imagining of how money works and the development of Altruistic Capitalism.  2) Developing resources and partners to help create and establish sustainable/affordable housing and health and human services for aging musicians and artists who have lived a Life of Art,  but who are outside the social services norm, and not being supported by the status quo.
