professional digital audio recording and post production


Studio and Location Recording


I work in conjuction with specialised spoken word recording studios in Central London and elsehwere to record professional narrators at broadcast quality.  Alternatively, I can record on location using both my own ProTools equipment or a high quality location recording kit.


Digital Editing


My particular specialism.  I have a home editing studio with ProTools, and over 12 years experience in digital editing using various packages.  I edit not just in English, but have experience working in over 20 other major languages.  I firmly believe that if you can hear it - you can edit it.  In languages I do not speak myself I have trusted partners to verify my work is correct to the high linguistic standards expected by clients.

Mixing and Mastering


A good end product comes from a base of consistency.  I use my experience to ensure the result is easy on the ear and conforms to the required technical standard for your project.

Sound Design, Music and SFX sourcing and production


Need to sink a ship?  Wrestle a dinosaur?  Land your listener on the moon?  I can help.  I have an extensive sound effects library and the ability to access or make anything which might be that little bit more specific.  My extensive Production Music contacts give me access to a wide range of music, and I might be able to rustle up the odd piece myself too!


Scriptwriting and Editing

From bespoke writing to giving an existing script extra spark, my experience in writing , editing and producing material tailored for the ear could prove valuable.  There is a great difference in writing for the page rather than speech - try reading a novel aloud!

Pre-Production Consultation


Simply need some advice on different approaches for your project?  In the last ten years I have worked on over a thousand individual cultural and heritage interpretation projects, and can bring my past experience to bear while always keeping in mind future developments and technologies.
