Nathan Reisman, at left with the cast of A & E's "Duck Dynasty," is co-owner and sound engineer at The Factory, a full-service creative agency in Memphis, Tenn.
A 2009 MU graduate, he earned a bachelor’s degree in commercial music with a focus on audio engineering and percussion performance. While at Millikin, Nathan participated in the World Percussion Ensemble, worked as an audio engineer and was a member of Delta Sigma Phi.
He began his career shortly after graduating from MU when he worked as a volunteer with a film crew in Louisiana, shadowing an audio engineer on a movie set and sleeping on a couch. That experience led to paid work as an audio engineer on a second film, also shot in Louisiana. Those two experiences helped him secure a position as director of audio productions with Dean Film & Video. In 2011, Nathan left Dean to form his own production company, The Factory.
Nathan has worked for numerous television networks, including ABC, Animal Planet, CBS, CNN, NBC, TV Land and VH1, completing projects ranging from MTV reality shows to HBO documentaries. In addition to his experience working on films and documentaries, he also has completed commercials and web projects. He notes that his experience in both video and recording studio production provide him with depth and a wide variety of audio skill with a range of knowledge in all areas of audio production.
