So this will be the beginning of a series of reviews that I will be doing, focusing on Heavy Metal releases that have slipped through the cracks or have been long since forgotten. Along with some classics to flesh it out. I want to explore the nether regions of metal i...

A lot of planning and replanning went into this but when the day finally arrived, we were ready. We had organised with the college to set up the night before. So we all stayed back till midnight setting everything up. In the first live room, we had two mics set up for...

Audio team hard at work

So after we'd recorded Gales parts with Kim, the director decided that he preferred the voice of Ashley, (she was the girl who read the script as a guide on set). I guess even though Kim was quite professional it was just not what the film needed...

Josepe is a fellow student at SAE who I’ve seen around campus and have had a few good chats to about hip-hop and as it turns out he’s actually a really good emcee. I agreed to help him track his vocals as someone had pulled out on him at the last minute, but once I sta...

 Aiming for Hollywood

So we received the final edit as agreed on the 10th of March, the day after my birthday and it was fantastic because we could get straight to work. Or could we? The file was going to take 2 hours to load. We took a copy anyway so that Jamey (direct...

I decided to do a quick sound replacement project as a warm-up for working on sound in the upcoming film The Point & Click of no Return. It’s a cool Japanese add for Anta sneakers. I wanted to keep this nice and simple and treat it like it was a job I’d been given and...
