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, wireless kits, and more. Am Auckland based, but regular 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)

Was assisting on the lighting for a music video last night. An underwater shoot with an Arri Alexa Mini. We're bouncing an Arri M18 off a mirror so it comes down into the water.

Was fascinating watching the reaction of the bugs to our lighting set up. The moths were acting like Kamakazi fighter pilots and dive bombing into the pool on a suicide mission!!

Why on earth were so many doing that??? Attracted to the massive light source that was reflecting off for the pool is my assumption, but not realising it was not a light... but water they're flying into! 😮

New Sennheiser microphone has arrived, but also excellent are these two little USB powered lights. Handy for when digging around in your mixing bag while on a night shoot. Have one of them tonight! I'll give this light a spin on the shoot for Older the Movie. ... See MoreSee Less

When you go into a store and buy out their entire stock of these AA rechargeable batteries... ...the cashier asked if I was buying for friends? Ha, nope, just me! (I'll be needing them as doing a shoot out in the bush. Already have *zillions* of batteries! But getting MORE to be on the safe side) ... See MoreSee Less
