What Makes Cinematic Waves
We believe that sound speaks for itself, and it deserves to be amplified.
That’s why for us, there is nothing more satisfying than collaborating with directors, filmmakers, and producers to help them realize their creative vision through the power of sound.

Unlike our larger competitors, we bring uniquely customized, one-on-one attention to each project we work on and treat everything we work on as if it were our own. We proudly create a small-town feel, with a global sound. Because for us, sound design is more than a practice. It’s in our passion.
Let us help you realize your vision through the power of sound-creation, post-production, mixing, and mastering.
Your sound matters. Let’s amplify it.
Meet the FOUNDER
Luke Deardoff is best known for his unique ability to integrate meticulous technical ability, creative ingenuity, and genuine passion for people into his work as a sound expert. Which is what makes him one of the most sought-after Sound Designers.
Before founding Cinematic Waves, Luke spent years honing his expertise in sound-creation, post-production, mixing, and mastering at some of the country’s most prestigious post-production studios.
But after thousands of hours spent behind the soundboard, he realized factor-style technical work wasn’t enough to fulfill his passion. He knew in order to make a bigger impact, he also wanted to connect with fellow artists, creatives, and directors to create work that aligns with his mission to amplify the power of sound.
Now he’s dedicated to creating a comprehensive experience that matches the quality of your voice to Cinematic Waves’s production skills, without your budget getting in the way.
Through Sound Design, Luke has found his voice and now he wants to help you find yours.

I felt like it was living and breathing all of a sudden, and was grateful for all the attention to detail he had, from foley to dialogue editing to the mix, and everywhere in between."
