Sound Designer & Live Sound Tech
Sound Design & SFX
Renewed is a 3D animation created by students at the University of Hertfordshire. The story resides around a young girl, striving to turn her robot guardian into a user of renewable energy, as opposed to using the coal which it burns now.
I was tasked with the sound design and SFX on this animation, initially really liking the idea of the Robot character. As it is based around a large furnace and older rusted parts, I thought there was a lot of room to create a unique sound design pallet for the character. Along with this, there is a variety of different environments which I have had to tackle, allowing me to paint more of a picture of where the characters are currently set.
Sound Design & SFX
The Faceless is a 2D animation, created by students at The University of Hertfordshire. The story revolves around the main character and a creature, stealing the faces of people.
Originally I really liked the opening look of this animation, it was a lot more dark and gritty when compared to a lot of the other animations on show. In terms of the final piece, there was a lot more sound design and sfx, when compared to the soundtrack. The sfx could really emphasise the texture and 'grossness' of the creature. I feel like this animation gave me a lot of room to try out different textures and sounds, meaning I could create a much more effective recreation of this creature.
Virtuele Rariteit was a project which I was asked to go over in post-production and do the sound design for. It involved adding in some ambience and Foley, as well as a fair amount of dialogue clean up.
I had no involvement in the recording and initial part of sound recording on set, however, all ambience and some Foley is my own, apart from some parts which I felt did not need to be changed.

This Twinings commercial was a one day shoot where I was in charge of all aspects of sound recording. There was no real issues aside from the shape and brightness of the room.
I was not involved in the post-production side of this project, only the recording done on set.
Lead Sound Designer & Audio Technician
Your Audio is a small venture which has been set up by myself and 2 co-workers, creating different and unique packs of assets, mainly for video games, along with also creating music and ambience which users can add to their project. We also plan to offer support for these users, allowing them to contact us and implement these sounds and tracks in the best way into their game or film.
At the moment we are in the initial stages of getting set up and deciding the paths we are going to move down in terms of sounds and packs.
Completed packs and projects can be seen by pressing read more.
Ambience and textures
I personally think that VCV Rack is a great tool and I plan on using it in future projects.
I generally use the program to create textures and ambiences which I can use and plan on creating more and more general patches which I may or may not use. These patches will be available to hear by pressing the read more button under this text.
I may also make some videos detailing how I made these sounds, along with some tutorials within VCV Rack itself.
