RECORDING. MIXING. ASSISTING.
Hi! I'm Charlie, a Sound Recordist, Mixer and AS, with more than 10 years experience in the broadcast industry. I started my career assisting in outside broadcast and live music recording trucks (40+ UK & European tours and productions), learning from some highly experienced engineers, and later transitioning into location and studio sound for TV, Film, Commercial and Corporate video (300+ productions). I provide a full complement of the latest and greatest sound mixing and recording equipment, suitable for any production, and am a full member of the Institute of Professional Sound.
Working on productions of every possible format, my work has been broadcast on the BBC, ITV, Sky, MTV, XFM, London Live and across internet video services like Youtube, Facebook, Vimeo and Twitch.tv. I've also helped to deliver numerous commercial campaigns and corporate communication productions for some of the biggest companies in the world.
A number of the short films and commercial campaigns that I've been involved in have received numerous awards from film festivals worldwide and achieved recognition from the Cannes Lions awards and the Brand Film Festival.
MORE THAN LOCATION SOUND.
While location sound for drama, documentary, commercial, corporate & event coverage makes up the majority of my work, I also have experience delivering audio for studio based productions such as panel shows, reality TV, podcasts and music recording.
Beyond production sound I also offer some post-production services. While I don't do much sound design, I do offer ADR & voiceover recording, dialogue edits, re-recording mixes and music mixing and mastering.
With toes dipped into both worlds I'm happy to provide pre-production consultation on all aspects of the audio for any project from capture to delivery, including guidance on the acoustics of locations and studio spaces based on findings from location recces.
