Here are a few jobs I've done the sound for recently...

Video/Film/Stills Studio in Edinburgh
So, my extraordinary missus has opened a new, small photo studio in Newbattle on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Visit her site for more details.
See me..I do like a good crew lunch...I do, I do, I do.
Increasingly, on corporate videos these days, I'm asking the questions as well as doing sound. It's something I'm not only happy to do, but actually pretty good at. In another life I'm a film-maker at Chronographfilms, so I'm no stranger to getting the best out of an interviewee.
So, if you're a Director-Cameraman who wants to actually direct and operate during an interview , then I'm your man to do sound and more!
Just bought a timecode buddy to send timecode to cameras from the recorder. Works fine and overcomes the fear that time-of-day timecode may drop a few frames on camera shut down ( for lens changes for example)
Always been a worry on the Canon C300 for example, which despite assurances that it's been fixed in a firmware update, seems still prone to dropping timecode.
Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cumbria, Northumberland, Carlisle, North East England, Scottish Highlands
I'm an experienced, time served sound recordist with a stereo sound kit, 6 track SD/CF timecode recorder, radio-mics, camera radio-link (wireless hop) and all that kinda stuff. Not afraid to muck in and I'm happy to ask the questions in an interview, thus enabling a director-cameraman to get on with doing...well just that!
I've been at it for 15 years and I've still got all my own teeth, a sense of humour and I don't smell of gerbils or anything.
Guy, we are in the final two days in the Great Estates edit, I finished the sound mix yesterday and it is sounding terrific. Your sound recording is truly exceptional and when I hear from the dubbing mixer that this series has the best original sound recording they have worked with in a long long time it makes me very happy. You are always our 'go to first' soundman and your attention to detail, hard work and overall contribution to the films is much appreciated.
Guy is a consummate pro. He combines high technical ability with a personal touch that includes a fair dose of genuine congeniality. Don't ask him about aircraft or locomotives though unless you want a dissertation on the Beattock climbing abilities of the 70023.

He records and performs professional voiceover work, and will happily provide input regarding tone and pace. An all round team-player with an eye on getting the best out of any production."
