Create, design, mix, edit, review and repeat. Whether you need me to mix your audio for the Video you've just completed, create an Audio Signature for your company, track a VO, write a new song or jingle, design a soundscape or edit an Audiobook or Podcast, we can help.
Working under pressure with the writers, producers and directors requires flexability and confidence in your abilities when recording with deadlines in place. Editing gigs of raw material, collaborating with the client and then bringing the audio to life for film through music and sound design is where we get to add to the creative mix.
With over 250 final mixes going to various broadcasters like SABC, M-Net and Starsat, one documentary Film and numerous other Podcasts, Skits, Ads and Audiobooks, means getting the balance between the various audio elements spot-on as well as complying to the EBU R128 Loudness Levels required by various broadcasters.
Matching the creative brief entails a lot of different creative processes that culminate into the finished product. Exploring various genres, era's and styles. Creating mood and atmosphere through music, Sound Design and FX. Good musical ideas often come from hours of experimenting with new ideas and good coffee.
Editing skills and working under pressure go hand in hand. With more than ten years of experience with Protools, editing over 300 episodes for TV and Digital media, getting VO's ready for the film crew (pressure!) and sifting through countless hours of audio for the perfect take, we can confidently say we know how to edit audio!
I studied music in Los Angeles @ M.I.T and have been creating, recording and perfoming music ever since. Some of my songs have charted to No.1 positions on local Charts as well as giving our band the opportunity to travel abroad and perform in Europe. Apart fom being a SAMA Nominee, I have also won 2 coveted SAFTA Awards for best Sound Design for my work that I did for Both World's production, Puppet Nation, which saw me heading up their audio department and producing over 200 episodes worth of voice-overs final mixes, music composition and sound design over the course of 3 years. My usual day sees me teaching, DJ'ing, making music, mixing client's audio for their campaign videos and of course spending as much time as possible with my family and my bicycle.
