Customer experience agency Definition 6 (D6) is pleased to welcome Ted Marcus, an Emmy-winning Mixer/Sound Designer, to its team. Marcus brings more than 20 years of experience in audio post, sound design, and music for broadcast promos, commercials, feature films, and documentaries.
At Definition 6, he has already completed work for Nickelodeon, CBS Sports, HBO, and EPIX.
“For as long as I’ve been working in the industry, I’ve known of Ted’s reputation as one of the most respected in his field,” says Dan O’Sullivan, Definition 6 VP of Sound. “The experience and expertise he brings to Definition 6 further strengthens our team and allows us to provide even better service and creative for all our clients and colleagues.”
“I already feel right at home with D6,” adds Marcus. “For the past 20+ years, we’ve been working and evolving in parallel and admiring each other along the path. I look forward to collaborating with such a talented, all-encompassing team of creatives who always seem to have their finger on the pulse of what’s next.”
Most recently, Marcus was a mixer/sound designer at SuperExploder, where he worked on projects, including HBO’s Westworld and Big Little Lies, NBC Sports’ NASCAR and Thursday Night Football, as well as Trickle Up, a nonprofit international development organization. Before that, he was at Ultrabland, working on campaigns for HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Cinemax, National Geographic, and FX. In 2011, he was part of the team that won a Sports Emmy for HBO’s “24/7 Jimmie Johnson: Race to Daytona” series.

From 2000 – 2006, Marcus headed audio for MTV’s On-Air Promos division, spearheading the development of its in-house audio facility. During his tenure, he worked on the 2002 Video Music Awards’ takeover of NYC, including immersive installations at the Rockefeller Center, Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal, and other landmarks around the city.
Marcus was invited to tour with the Meat Puppets as a drummer in 2006, which was followed by four years of writing, performing, and touring with the popular rock band, as well as recording two full-length albums. In between, he continued to take on mix assignments for clients.
“I thrive on the creative collaboration,” concludes Marcus. “I love helping a director, producer or editor to realize their goal — taking what’s in their head and interpreting it through sound. It’s about building the sound design and effects around the story first, so it has the right impact. With Definition 6, I’m really looking forward to sharing knowledge and resources, and bouncing ideas off of each other, always in the spirit of finding better ways to work and be better at our craft.”
Reel 360 wishes Ted the best of luck in his new role.
