Hewitt becomes Professor of the Practice

Founder and president of Mirror Studios, Charlie Hewitt, will become the second Professor of the Practice in the Department of Theatre, Film, and Creative Writing.

Hewitt is a life-long recording and performing musician, audio recording producer and engineer, and sought-after voice talent with national and international exposure. Hewitt first opened Mirror Studios as a music recording studio. Over the years it transitioned into a multi-media production and post-production facility specializing in audio post. From his early love of storytelling through music, it was a natural progression to the art of sound design in radio, television, and film.

Hewitt is also an accomplished private and instrument rated pilot and aircraft owner and has more than a dozen years producing aviation-related content for clients such as the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing Aircraft as well as producing “The Aviator Series,” a pilot safety platform featuring legendary pilot and record-breaking aviator, Dick Rutan. Hewitt’s other projects include “The Frozen Ground,” “Big Miracle,” “Burlesque,” and “Brother Bear.”

Hewitt will be on campus beginning in the fall and will teach a post-production audio class.

Award-winning writer Ridley Pearson was the department’s first Professor of the Practice.
