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.
