Michael Perricone, C.A.S. CEO, Lotus Post
Michael Perricone started out playing guitar and bass at age ten. He played in all the requisite bands in high school. While in high school, he formed a sound company, which got him the chance to record one of the local bands in a commercial studio. This opened his eyes to recording and producing, and opened them wide.
At age 19, Michael moved to Hollywood, took an assisting job in a 24 track studio and within a year became a mixer for major film and television music. Since then he’s recorded everybody from Joe Walsh and Alice Cooper to Johnny Mathis and Kermit the Frog. He also found a home in orchestral recording. Not being content with just music, he branched out into sound design for T.V. and film. He has sound edited, supervised or mixed hundreds of hours of television and dozens of features.
In 1985 he co-founded Interlock Studios in Hollywood, which he ran successfully for 17 years averaging over $1 million in annual revenues until he sold the company in 2002.
After the sale of Interlock, Michael served as Director of Audio Post for Threshold Sound for 6 years, until he got the calling to hang his own shingle again.
On June 1st 2009, Michael launched his newest facility, Lotus Post, a 6-studio sound and video facility in Santa Monica, CA. He is also the president and founder of Omstream.com, an online music destination site.
Recent film projects include sound-supervising and mixing for “Hit and Run”, “Angriest Man in Brooklyn”, “Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes” and screenwriting, mixing and music composition for “Pass the Baton.”
He’s produced records in every genre, some making varied charts.
His screenwriting career has seen him writing produced episodes of Paramount’s “Star Trek: Voyager”, Disney’s “In a Heartbeat”, Spelling’s “Savannah” and “Charmed”, the latter two for which he was on staff as Story Editor and Executive Story Editor respectively.
