“Rich did a great job on our documentary "Beautiful People," seamlessly weaving our live musical tracks with interviews. I truly appreciate the idea of being an 'invisible' editor at this part of the process, and Rich understood all that i had intended. In addition to the three attributes selected above, I will use this space to add the other four. We stayed on track and on budget, and even allowed ourselves some extra time to have fun with a particular sequence. I'm very proud to have Rich on our team, and would absolutely work with him again in the future”
-- Sam Adelman, Paradox Smoke Productions
"Rich Macar was extremely talented and competent at bringing our film to life through his attention to details, foley work, mixing, and out of the box musical ideas.
-- Georgia Menides, Writer of feature film, Still Green
“Working with Rich is a real treat. I edited a sitcom pilot that he mixed. It was one of the more relaxed and enjoyable mixes I've done. He has a great, collaborative attitude and makes excellent decisions. I was very happy with the quality of the sound, and I will definitely work with him again.”
-- Kyle Gilman, Website Producer at Possible Films, New York City Area
Rich Macar came to New York with a Synclavier and started solving creative problems on tight schedules and tight budgets – for projects like Steven King's Maximum Overdrive and the haunting music-box scene in Francis Ford Coppola's Peggy Sue Got Married.
That was 1985 at Sound One NY.
Because Rich could already see the digital future – the highest quality sound at the fastest pace and lowest cost – he was the first of the digital warriors.
So by 1988 he had founded Buttons.
Today, Buttons is a whole network of digital warriors – dedicated to inventing new ways to deliver sound as well as post finishing, at higher velocity and lower cost – and to keep on pushing the envelope of technology.
Take a look at our work – for films like Happy Feet and Legend of the Guardians, on TV shows for Denis Leary's Apostle Films, on NBC's Hannibal, and for advertising McDonalds, Discovercard and more – on this website.
Then let's talk about what our digital warriors can do for you.
