Gabriel’s journey in post production sound began at Mercury Sound Studios in June 2005. There he mixed his first feature film and split time as Engineer, Mixer and Mix Technician. Next, he moved into a position at Todd-AO Vine Street and was there until 2006. From there Serrano went to Wilshire Stages. Within 6 months the facility turned into Wildfire, where he spent 7 years and gained valuable experience as a Re-Recording Mixer. In the fall of 2013, Gabriel joined Formosa Group supervising and mixing films.
“I always listen before making any changes to the shape of the soundtrack. It's easy to get overly focused on new ideas and gadgets before really examining what’s coming through the speakers. I try to make long mix passes and keep in mind what's coming before and after at all times.”
He has been working alongside Marti D. Humphrey at The Dub Stage since 2016 as his Sound Effects Re-Recording Mixer.
