About Michael F. Bates

Sound designer | Tone Manufacture | UK

I am a supervising sound editor, sound designer and re-recording mixer specialising in post production sound for film.

I have worked on films that have screened at Academy Award and BAFTA qualifying film festivals, been shown at Picturehouse Cinemas nationwide, with Turner Prize winning artists and on installations that have been shown at the Venice Biennale.

I’m comfortable working on lower budgets and covering all aspects of post production sound myself or on larger budgets contracting and supervising other sound editors, foley studios and re-recording mixers to bring together the final soundtrack.

I also record sound effects in the studio and in the field, some of which are available to buy at and via other distributors including A Sound Effect, Sonniss and Soundsnap.
