This week sees the issuing of my 1000th invoice, that’s somewhere in the region of 50,000 hours working as a location sound recordist, which is pretty amazing.
Always great to work with new production companies. Committee films from Minneapolis contacted me at the end of 2018 to work on America Uncovered hosted by Scott Wolter. Spent a week on the trial of Jack the Ripper, The Mason’s and the Knights Templars. The show airs in the States on The History Channel.
My good friend Matt Bacon and his team have just launched a new website to help freelancers in the TV/Film industry promote their talents and services. Head to mediacircles.tv and have a look. There’s a free 3 month trial if you sign up now. Well done Matt and the team! www.mediacircles.tv
Finally some good weather, time to try out the Hyperlapse up on The Downs
Art historian Professor Richard Clay immerses us in the febrile world of viral media, exploring the popularity and meaning of internet memes, from LOL cats to emoji, pratfall videos to ‘dank’ alt right satire. Tonight on BBC4 @ 21.00
Very pleased to announce the launch of The Sound hounds. The Sound hounds are audio kit hire suppliers and also a collective of independent sound mixers. We are comfortable working on productions of all sizes from single camera shoots to large scale multi-camera productions. Born out of working mainly on reality TV shows, we have a great deal of experience in the planning and recording of fixed-rig shows. We pride ourselves on giving a high level of service, while also helping to create a positive environment, no matter what the job you’ll find our tails wagging happily!

Just finished another slice of Bake Off The Professionals.
Truly inspiring bakers! Coming soon to Channel 4.
Had a great time working on this doc for Ch4 at the end of last year. A unique cutting-edge scientific investigation reveals surprising new information about the crew of Henry VIII’s favourite warship, redefining what we thought about Tudor England.
