Steve Morantz CAS

Starting as a PA in the mid-’90s on commercials, I had the opportunity to work in each department and I was fascinated with sound. I signed up for an “Intro to Sound” classes through UCLA Extension that Jim Tanenbaum was teaching. In 2001, I was on the feature 13, starring Holly Hunter and it turned union. In February 2006, I got a call for the HBO series Entourage that they were looking for a mixer. I said to myself, “What do I have to lose.” I’ve been nominated for three Emmys and two CAS Awards. Life is good.
