Send me an email now so we can discuss what I can do for your project to bring it to the next level!

My daily rate is $450/day for labour, + gear rental ($200/day package deal for a basic kit of: recorder/mixer + boom mic + a wireless). I can negotiate alternative rates for longer projects such as feature films.

Sound Devices 552 mixer/recorder is $45/day. Each microphone is $45/day. Each wireless is $45/day, and $45/day for each Tascam DR680 8-Track recorder. Very simple maths, each item is $45/day! (gear rentals can have the usual 3 day week discounts. Wet hire only)

If your shoot has any other specific gear needs then we can discuss them, and I’ll be able to source them for you as well.

For last year’s NZ 48hr Film Festival our team (that I was sound recordist for) was an Auckland Finalist (beating out hundreds of other films) for “Tane Huata: Puppet Hunter” (also got into 2017’s Final too! Film will be online soon).

Another film I recorded sound for called “No Caller ID” had its premiere at “Show Me Shorts” (NZ’s premiere short film festival)

A review of “No Caller ID”: http://bttm.co.uk/no-caller-id-short-film-review/ Another review: http://horrorbuzz.com/nocallerid/

“No Caller ID” is currently screening at Screamfest Horror Film Festival, which NZ Herald calls “Hollywood’s most prestigious horror film festival”.

A few other videos I’ve recorded sound for include:







Am a team player knowledgeable in lighting and camera craft as well, and on small crews able to lend a hand pitching in alongside being a soundie with my versatile background.
