Sound recording and sound editing had been my specialism at art school (graduating with a First), and I began recording sound professionally in 2008, whilst working as a camera assistant on the BBC Storyville, Simon Mann’s African Coup: Black Beach Prison, filmed in Equatorial Guinea, West Africa. Since then, I’ve recorded sound on broadcast and feature documentaries, dramas, and commercials on locations around the world.

 

My sound package includes a Sound Devices 633 mixer/recorder, Sennheiser 8050, 8060, and 416 microphones, wide-band Audio Wireless radio microphones, and a wireless camera-hop.

Our Queen at Ninety

 

Told in the words of those closest to her, 'Our Queen at Ninety' features interviews with family members about what the 89-year-old is really like, as well as showing behind the scenes footage of her life while homage is paid to her many years at the helm of the Royal family.

 

As well as recording Kate Middleton’s first solo broadcast interview, I also recorded William, Duke of Cambridge; Charles, Prince of Wales; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; Sophie, Countess of Wessex and numerous other characters throughout the film.

Viewing figures on Tx were 7 million.

 

“You have nurtured, carried and protected your baby for 9 months. And now that you’ve given birth, they’re the new centre of everyone’s life. And while their first days and weeks are important, your 10th Month is just as important and deserves attention too.”

We filmed 10 women as they learn to navigate this particularly poignant time, providing an intimate look at their 10th Month and an encouragement of support for all new mums.

Stand alone 60min documentary film for the BBC's Storyville strand. Also shown on America networks as part of the Wide Angle strand, under the title 'Once Upon a Coup'. I was the AC and Soundman for the shoot in Equatorial Guinea, West Africa (the GV's, Simon Mann's interview, and President Obiang's interview). We shot on the Varicam, and unusually, I dialed in much of the 'look' in-camera. I also helped as a technical liason. It was a tense few months(!) waiting for visas, but when we actually got to EG, wow, it was exciting. Was a really professional team behind this film, and it a great project to have contributed toward.
