That can mean 40 actors voicing 750+ characters over complex worlds of sound design and epic music for our adaptations of 2000AD comics; fusing a Max Richter score with hours of original field recordings for Charlie Mackesy’s The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse; or ditching the studio altogether and recreating a fictional true crime podcast with on-location witness interviews, subtle sound design and a tense original music score for Joseph Knox’s True Crime Story.

  • Providing editing support to other teams around the business, for instance by editing for radio
  • Playing a mentoring and supportive role to our junior sound editor
