Ridgeline Sound is a music and audio post production company located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Sound engineer and composer Jeff Yellen founded Ridgeline after moving from NYC to Vancouver back in 2006. Ridgeline Sound’s studio is a 5.1 mixing and scoring facility equipped with some of the best hardware and software available.
Jeff Yellen started producing music in high school when he first discovered the world of midi and samplers back in 1994. After graduating from Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts with a BA Honours in Sound Technology, Jeff moved back to New York where he worked in various studios for the next 5 years including Sony Audio Post. After a snowboarding trip to Colorado and his first true taste of powder snow, Jeff realized NYC was not where he was meant to be so he packed his studio up and moved to Vancouver, BC. It’s this combination of passions for sound and the mountain life that makes Ridgeline Sound a leader in audio post for action sport and adventure media.
Ridgeline Sound has been Teton Gravity Research's go to audio post production facility since knocking it out of the park on our first collaboration together. Jeff (and his team) seamlessly integrated into our workflow and understood the rigor and complications that can arise during the final stages of post on a world class action sports film. Ridgeline Sound shares TGR's absolute dedication to creating the best final product possible, which has been demonstrated time and time again on the numerous films, TV series, trailers, and commercials that we've worked on together over the last few years.
Post Production Supervisor at Teton Gravity Research
We've worked with Jeff on a number of projects, both as an engineer and for original scoring. He never fails to deliver the goods on both accounts. A class act, he's willing, able and above all patient with any and all of our minutiae feedback. A real pro that we look forward to working with every time.

Jeff has quickly become our go-to guy for sound. His intuitive mixing is typically bang-on, and most importantly, he brings us in on time and on budget.
