Serge Laforest



Funny, witty, daring, and always curious, Serge has been a part of the Montréal post-production scene for over 30 years now. In an effort to keep the hustle and bustle of downtown Montréal away from his studio, he aimed up, waaay up! to the 26th floor of the Stock Exchange Tour, where he orchestrates and conducts a team of talented artists with gusto and panache.


Johan Chacon

General Manager / Sound Engineer


Johan Chacon was born in 1400 (Ref.: www.genealogieonline.nl) lived a full and loving life before passing away at young age. Luckily for us, in 1977 he reincarnated in El Salvador, immigrated to Quebec when he turned 10, became a brilliant sound engineer and fathered 3 adorable children. Life coach to many of us, he lifts all humans above his own persona and inspires Audio Z’s operations on a daily basis with his integrity, compassion and legendary kindness. HBO content specialist, zen podcast commuter and trust us, he is no gringo when it comes to mojitos and refried beans.


Annick Lemire

Casting and production coordinator


A tranquil, yet powerful force of nature, Annick takes on her projects with reassuring calm and serenity. But beware, under that sweetness and those feline eyes lies a keen jogger running straight towards any challenge, and a punk rocker at heart living life all in!


Stéphanie Rousseau

Casting and production coordinator


With her infectious smile, good humour and enthusiasm, Stephanie sets the mood; all while handling our clients requests with poise and grace. Curious about culture and different parts of the world, she’s always ready to jump onto her next adventure. She can also exchange some serious old school hip hop rhymes with ya, if you’re up for the challenge!


Vanessa Sansfaçon

Casting and production coordinator


A mix of vibrancy, joie de vivre and a wicked sense of humour, all lovingly contained in one single person. It never quite feels like work when she’s around. When she’s not juggling the busy life of a producer, you can find her whipping other people into shape, trekking, or downing the occasional draft beer. Santé!


Mathieu Bourassa

Sound Engineer / DOP


Behind Mathieu’s calm and charming disposition, lies a rebel in disguise. The kind that might stroll the streets of Montreal at night on his skate board, dreams of jumping out of airplanes, and might just drink Gin straight out of a bottle; probably all to the beat of ‘Born to be wild’. A talented musician and sound engineer, Mathieu joins Audio Z freshly graduated with a Master’s from the prestigious McGill University Sound Recording Program.


Alexandre Corriveau

Sound Engineer


With his laid back attitude and clever sens of humour, Alex’s sessions are a welcome break from your stressful day. Methodical, resourceful, yet playful in his approach, he’s the perfect partner to ignite that creative spark. Favourite travel destination? Vegas baby!!! Did we mention his playfulness.


Erick Gendron

Sound Engineer


Originally interested in becoming a paramedic, Erick finally turned his fascination to the surgical precision of creating sounds. Still devoted to the service of others, he’ll examine your sessions with great care and dedication, making the appropriate diagnosis to turn your creative emergency around. With a background in sound design and an authentic passion for sound, Erick’s the perfect complement to your creative team.


Rémy Sealey

Sound Engineer / Composer


A curious mind, a vivid imagination and solid musical sensibilities make Rémy a one-of-a-kind sound designer. A fearless explorer of the experimental side of creativity, he’s the guy to call if you’re looking to create that sound no one’s ever heard before. He also spends his weekends refining his martial arts chops! Let’s just say he can get you out of all kinds of trouble.


Luc Thériault

Sound Engineer


A graduate from McGill University’s Music and Sound recording programs, Luc joined the team in the mid 90s. Talented flutist, a teacher at heart, and an absolute workhorse, he’s been instrumental in expanding the studio into what it is today, as well as preparing a new generation of sound engineers and assistants for the challenges and discipline that make up a sound engineers life. And if you’re looking for camping suggestions throughout North America, he’s your man.


Stevo Trann

Media Distribution Director


In the pursuit of excellence, you need focus, drive, and straight out hard work. Stevo figured this out early on. Media Distribution Director, model, photographer, crossfitter and social media aficionado, Stevo pushes his multiple talents forward with authenticity. All while leading our Media department with brio. Look him up on Tweeter, Insta, Facebook, Whatsapp, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr, MySpace …


Axel Poulet

Technical Director


An audio geek in the purest sense of the word, Axel moved to Montreal to make his mark. Embodying the multidisciplinary definition, he can tactfully and efficiently answer all your questions. We can often find Axel in his natural habitats: in front of a computer, on a tennis court, or even with a pizza in his mouth while practicing his guitar “chops.” It’s safe to say he’ll keep you entertained.


Charles Castonguay

Technical Support and distribution


They say all roads lead to Audio Z… euh Rome. After many roads travelled, Charles comes to our studio with an expérience as varied as his colourful t-shirts. Lover of cinema, video games and animes, his easygoing smile hides a fertile imagination. Now part of our technical support and distribution team, he originally joined us as an assistant production coordinator. Versatility much?!


Mathieu Sansfaçon

Hospitality specialist


A natural host and entertainer, Mathieu warms up our reception area with his contagious laugh and dark sens of humor. An unassuming fashionista, he’s the only one in the studio brave enough to pull off a decent hat. We’re not talking baseball caps here; we’re talking fedoras, pork pie hats, Panama hats, hats that are notoriously hard to get right. One day you might mistake him for Humphrey Bogart, the next for Walter White.
