The sound of a great picture

Potrero Post’s strength lies in our ability to harness the creative power of our dedicated, experienced professionals, equipped with the best tools and support systems available. We focus all our energy on our primary mission, to listen to you, the client, and understand how we should serve you and help you convey your story.


Sound is your friend because sound is much cheaper than picture, but it has equal effect on the audience—in some ways, perhaps more effect because it does it in a very indirect way. —Francis Ford Coppola

Audio Production for film does not have to be a pain in the ass nor an afterthought to a great picture. We here at Potrero Post can help you integrate the audio workflow seamlessly into your project.

We understand what filmmakers need because we listen to you. We watch your film. We listen to your film. We understand that the viewer experience of a film is is shared equally between sight and sound. We strive to create that emotional auditory bond between the film and the viewer, from shoot to post.

“Is Buddy a madman? No doubt. Will he improve your project? No question. Would I work with him again? In a heartbeat.”

“Whatever audio your project needs—music, sound design, ADR—Buddy Saleman can make it happen. He’ll elevate your to a level you didn’t think was possible.” —Kerwin Berk, Ikeibi Films


Everything that I do is for sound goals. It comes from my gut. When I’m sitting in the studio, a mix isn’t done till I feel it in my gut. —Dr. Dre

At Potrero Post we believe that the best music is made, by getting the best performances from the artists. Which is why we apply old school ideas with the most modern of technological approaches. We work to make sure your performances are the best they can be. We don’t immediately go for the Auto tune plug-in just because it’s easy, nor do we go for the cut and paste job. We help you-the artist-find what’s great inside of yourselves and bring that to fruition

“Buddy gets us. He gets the music, and he gets how we make it. We keep coming back because what we make here, sounds like Brass Farthing should.” —George Chlentzos, Brass Farthing


Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms. —Alfred Hitchcock

The most integral part of Voice Over is to understand that all voices have a lyrical flow and that the best way to interpret the copy is to pair the correct talent with the project. We have a huge index of Voice over artists, we have worked with in as many languages as you can dream.
