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.

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 the last three years in a row in NZ’s 48hr Film Festival I’ve been the sound recordist for a finalist team (beating out hundreds of other films) starting with “Tane Huata: Puppet Hunter” back in 2016

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.
