Germaine Franco Mixes Film Favourites

GRAMMY® Award-winning and Oscar-nominated Composer and Music Producer Germaine Franco credits her lifelong success to her early immersion in Latin music, which fueled her creativity.

From the start of her career, Franco has incorporated this passion into her work, building an extensive resume and setting the bar high with her deliverables.

Franco was the first Latina to win a GRAMMY Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, in recognition of her work on Encanto, and the first Latina to receive the Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement for Music in an Animated Feature for her work on Coco. Other recent projects include composing and producing the score for the Netflix smash hit The Mother, along with two No.1 Netflix films, Work It and The Sleepover, among others.

When mixing for major motion pictures and other high-profile films, Franco’s workflow often includes a significant amount of collaboration. After first orchestrating and developing her ideas, she produces demos that are shared with filmmakers, editors and music supervisors. Because of this, Franco says it is important to have a wide variety of reliable tools in her workstation. This includes various NUGEN Audio plug-ins, such as Halo Upmix, Halo Downmix and Paragon. "It's vital to have the perfect plug-ins and tools, because it is the norm these days for demos to sound incredible the first time you present them,” she said.
