Professional Sound Recordist / Videographer / VR-ist

Email me:

Hi! I’m a professional sound recordist working on a variety of feature films and many other projects this year. With a Sound Devices 552 mixer, 8-track recorders, Sanken CS-3e, a dozen wireless kits, and more. Am Auckland based, but I regularly travels across NZ on work.

I’m also a videographer (own a Sony PMW-F3 & BMPCC) who loves camera gear tech and crafting light to make your next film be awesome. I come equipped and ready to take on whatever your project is! Be it events, short films, weddings, corporate videos or even something more unusually out of the box… want to shoot an engagement session with medium format film? Or want a 360 degree virtual reality video? Can do! Get in touch.

A small random assortment of videos I’ve been the cameraman on:

“You are one of the most intense camera professionals I have seen in my career as an actor. I love the unending energy you have to give the best… even if it’s just a 2 second shot. Love your passion and it shows in the end product. Keep up the good work mate.” ~ Raj Singh (Actor)

“There are few men in history as prepared as you now are for low light shooting!” ~ Dion Paz (Director)

“David was utterly thorough in his preparations as DoP for my short film Breathe. He knew my shot list by heart and without any doubt he absolutely knows his stuff, and I felt very fortunate to have a DoP who was very generous in sharing this knowledge.” ~ Kirsty Hamilton (Director)

This will be the easiest scene for sound ever! As was informed by the 1st AD that they're over the limit for crew/cast for filming by a road without a permit. So guess who gets cut first? Sound! 🤣

On the upside, I don't need to worry about this lawnmower across the road! Perfect timing too, just before the rain starts.

I like the name of this track!
Although it is also rather confusing when the lead actor is also named "David".

On the third day of a new feature film I'm doing sound for. Have a boom op, who I have using an AKG hypercardiod (also booming with one myself at the same time) which is being sent into a Sound Devices MP-1 that is then being wireless transmitted into my bag. A good little set up to run two booms at once. ... See MoreSee Less
