Korey Pereira earned a B.S. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin with a primary focus in sound for film. After graduation, Korey has remained involved with the department by mixing end-of-semester student films since 2008.
Korey also joined the Soundcrafter team in 2013. After the opening of their new six-room post-production audio facility in 2017, Soundcrafter has become the largest facility of its kind in Texas. Korey has earned credits as a sound editor, foley recordist and re-recording mixer at Soundcrafter. Notable projects include Shipping Wars, My 600-lb Life, Manglehorn, Boyhood, Everybody Wants Some! and Last Flag Flying.
Aside from traditional film mixing, Korey has also ventured into the area of immersive mixing for 3D and 360 videos. In collaboration with the UT3D program, Korey worked with lecturer Deepak Chetty to create the sound for his 3D sci-fi thriller, Hard Reset. In 2017, Korey assembled a mixing rig that allows for real-time previewing of 360 videos within Pro Tools using an Oculus VR headset.
