Ted Krotkiewski

Sound Designer

Ted Krotkiewski born in 1985 in Gothenburg, Sweden is a sound designer, composer and mixer for films. In June 2017 he joined forces with Momento Film and together they started Momento Studio, a boutique Post Production Company with a focus on offering the best sound design for quality film and commercials.

He has made praised sound design work on films like MY HEART BELONGS TO DADDY (Winner Amanda awards, Nominated for best sound design Kanon Awards), HORIZON (Berlinale, Winner Main price-SIFFA), HAMADA (Idfa, winner-Porto/post/doc & Gijon FF) and THE AMBASSADOR’S WIFE (Guldbagge Awards, Winner-Tempo short award)

He comes from a background in music, where he has worked as a composer, producer and mixing engineer for artists such as ELLIPHANT, LOREEN and ZARA LARSSON.

“This sounds like nothing but the future” – Pitchfork music magazine.

Ted wants our directors to enter the studio and feel at home, get creative and inspired. The studio is packed with many quirky objects such as those microphones from the ’30s or ’70s to nail “THAT” sound. Directors can twist a knob on one of the many synths to create something obscure or simply lay down in the sofa and experience their film with massive 5.1 sound on a big screen.
