We had the good fortune of connecting with Jacob Wasden and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jacob, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
In my line of work there can be many habits, but I find the best habits are the ones that you go through before a production. For example, getting in the habit of asking as many questions ask you can about a production before hand and turn that information into a physical note to help aid in your preparation for the work. Hearing, writing, seeing, and reading out that information to yourself will greatly keep you on a more focused track.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Mr. Wasden is a USMC Veteran who served honorably for four years and a graduate of The Art Institute of Atlanta with a Bachelors Degree in Audio Production. Currently he works in the Film & TV Industry as a Location Sound Recordist. He has worked on many independent works in the Sound Dept. and has also completed contract work with ESPN/Abc/Disney in utility work for their broadcasting events.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank everyone who has brought work my way or referred me. It is much appreciated and I make it a concrete goal to reach back out to all of those people and thank them personally as well as returning the favor.
