Meet John Dykstra, Recording Engineer at Technicolor Toronto.

Over the course of two decades, three-time Gemini award nominee John Dykstra has won a reputation for understanding each client’s particular preference and turning that into reality in the mix theatre.

After launching his career at Masters Workshop as an audio assistant 20 years ago, John joined Technicolor Toronto as a Foley/ADR recordist in 1999. He began mixing sound in 2005 and was promoted to senior mixer in 2011. He received Gemini nominations for best sound in 2008 for Would Be Kings, in 2009 for Flashpoint and in 2010 for The Rest of My Life. John serves as lead mixer on Degrassi: Next Class, Murdoch Mysteries, and The Good Witch, SFX mixer on Hemlock Grove and lead mixer for the feature Army of One.

As a guitar player, his strong understanding of music structure enriches his music editing and approach to the mix.
