About Philip QuintonField recordist | UK
I started sound recording part time in 2011 when I was invited to assist the sound department on a feature film called Death (A.K.A. After Death) by Martin Gooch. I ended up recording the pickups, the ADR sessions and editing some of the dialogue on that film over the course of the year. In the meantime the people I met on Death invited me to work on other features, short films, web series etc in various sound-related capacities and the more work I did the more I was invited to do until I was in sufficient demand to be able to charge for my time and equipment.
Early in 2016 I did a Location Sound Recording course at NFTS to reinforce and affirm the skills that I had been teaching myself during the course of the previous 5 years.
In March 2016 I accepted voluntary redundancy from my regular employment (at Viasat Broadcasting), invested a large sum of money on a lot of industry standard recording kit (Sound Devices, Sanken, Sennheiser, Lectrosonics), studio hardware and post production software and devoted myself to sound recording and post production full time.
I am now extremely busy working on several independent productions both on set and in the dubbing studio and looking forward to finding work with larger production companies
Previous employers include The London Studios and Channel 4 Television. My previous freelance work was as a music recording engineer/producer for unsigned bands and solo artists.
