Starting with just two sound designers in 2005, NoiseFloor has grown to a strong ten member staff of sound designers, music composers, producers, audio implementators, mixers and location recordists. The team has brought experience, passion, and talent to such projects as: Hoop Dreams, Apollo 13, The Merry Gentleman, The Moleman of Belmont Avenue, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and the Halo video games series.
