• Henry Michaelsen

    Founder & Managing Director

    Head of TV & Radio Department
    Phone + 45 31 41 21 60

    When Henry was 12 years old, he knew it was sound he wanted to work with. But his parents thought, that audio work was not a proper way of earning a living, so he began an education as metal worker. However, upon graduation as metal worker, he squeezed his way into the audio post production business, and have remained there ever since. 

     

    Starting in an early age, Henry is one of the most experienced sound editors in the danish audio and television industry with thousands of television and live programs behind him. He is the founder, and anchorman of GiLyd, and has succeeded in creating a space within the company where challenges from the clients and continual professional development of the employees goes hand in hand.

     

    Although work always comes first, he has made a decision that there should be time to workout several times a week, “Because if you are not fit, it becomes more than a challenge to stand 10 hours with a boom pole, getting 200 questions a day, and have hour-long meetings, so it's essential to be fit."

     

    He is pleased, when he hears a good, warm dialogue. And it's probably also why sound has been his work and hobby the past 30 years.

    When he's not sitting firmly planted in the studio with thoughts of sound, he runs or walks in the woods with his running club. As he says, “It's nice to run together with others, so there is somebody that actually listens to my anecdotes from a lifelong involvement as sound editor in the movie business.

  • Morten Borgholm

    Second year trainee

    Phone + 45 31 41 21 75

    Since Morten was a child, he dreamed of working with sound. But as a boy, he didn’t think there was any real work in producing sound for movies and TV. He imagined that you took a microphone, and then it all went straight to cinema. 

     

    Only when looking at all the extra material on his dvd’s he realised, it is a big industry with many job opportunities.

     

    According to Morten, the great challenge is to create a mix that sounds good on consumer grade systems e.g. flat screens  within the time frame allocated to the various projects.

     

    When Morten is not making sound, he reads books. He reads everything from comics to the divine comedy of the Florentine poet Dante Alighieri.
