“I had the privilege of working with Kirk from 2021 into 2022 when he took on the role of composer and sound mixer on my feature documentary. I was able to easily communicate ideas with Kirk, and I could not be more satisfied with how Kirk really made the music not only fit the film, but embrace and embolden the emotions throughout. I had such a great experience working with Kirk that I also asked him to score a short commercial I had just shot. The ideas came together so fast and the client was thrilled with the combination of visuals and music. I highly recommend working with Kirk on your next project, as his professionalism is sky-high, but he is extremely humble and a joy to work with. I would gladly hire him again for my future work, especially since Kirk makes the process so stress-free and enjoyable, while putting out very high-level work with extreme attention to detail.” ~ Randy Rock, Writer/Director/DOP, Golden City Films

I would recommend Kirk without hesitation.” ~ Cam Patterson, Writer/Director/Executive Producer, SoGo Productions, Inc.
“It is my extreme pleasure to recommend Kirk Ashley Smith for Sound Design and Music supports in post– production. Mr. Smith worked on two productions for Eagles Three Productions Rising “The Blue Lady” , which he did sound design and created a nuanced world that greatly enhanced the world of the main characters story. Plus in the second production “IN THE ECHO OF EVIL” , a dystopian drama. Mr. Smith created from scratch a complete sound design and some of the scoring that allowed the audience to feel through the sound design a new world. Again I highly recommend this talented and very dedicated artist.” ~ Tijuana Layne, Eagles Three Productions Rising

“This production was my second opportunity to collaborate with Kirk and it was an even better experience than the previous. He has a creative edge that made his audio selections fun and usable, and his technical expertise eliminated the stress of set-up and technical rehearsals.
