I work in both production and post-production sound in the independent film sector, however I'm looking to specialise as a sound designer - creatively designing the acoustics of a film to bolster the themes, subtexts and characters in a film. I have been conducting this alongside my writing practises, creating audio dramas to develop and showcase my abilities in both fields.
Coming from an agricultural background, I've recently found a way to share this underrepresented way of life, through (separate) existential and comedic writing. These are ideas I've developed into short films, audio dramas and a pilot for a series.
made use of lockdown by creating the audio drama Hessle!, a sci-fi comedy drama, inspired by 50's horror movies, about the impact of one man's relationship with a monster. I designed it to have a cinematic soundscape to push the boundaries of what an audio drama could be.
