Current Dailies

Hello!

Mount Pleasant

WRAP on Get Santa!

Thats a wrap on a hectic but fun six weeks all over Yorkshire filming next years Christmas blockbuster!

I had great fun recording splinter unit sequences and crazy car chase dialogue in the back of a stunt Jeep. I have learned a great deal and look forward to more feature work.

After a couple of weeks in the sun I will be available from April. Cheers

WRAP! Hank Zipzer

Well that’s a wrap on old zipzer, a long hard shoot with a crazy schedule but lots of fun!! As usual I have made some wonderful friends and hope to work with them all again soon.

 

I am now available for Dailies as second boom!! Please see my CV for contact details.

 

 

Hank Zipzer

All at Sea has now come to a close and has given me some great opportunities, the guys have kindly let me boom whole scenes on my own, at least one a day for the last couple of months and I had the chance to boom on a second unit day, and even boom/record a few scenes solo for the second unit pick-ups. We had a wonderful crew, with the busiest schedule I have worked on, 7-10 pages a day for two months keeps you on your toes 🙂

All of this was a great experience and the guys are pushing me to boom even better than before! Life is good.

We are all now moving onto a an American production of Hank Zipzer being shot in the UK until December, new challenges and a new town. I am excited to meet the Fonz!

 

“All At Sea”

After a long but very fun four months my time on Inspector George Gently is over, it was an absolute pleasure. The funniest job I have ever worked on by far, thanks to the cast and crew.

I am now moving back to Manchester to work with my old team Jonny Seale and Henry Dyer on the CBBC Drama “All At Sea” until the end of August. Its going to be great to work with the guys again and lots of the shameless crew, also its my first official job for the BBC, cosmic!

 

Inspector George Gently

I am about to start work on the new series of Inspector George Gently over in Durham until the end of June, it should be a great shoot and Durham looks lovely. I will be assisting Production Sound Mixer Gavin Dunn for the duration. Exciting start to the shooting year!

Peaky Blinders

After we finished Shameless for the year in December I was very lucky to be invited over to Leeds for the final days shooting of “Peaky Blinders” a 1930’s gang drama set in Birmingham. I had a great day with Brian Milliken AMPS and Jackson on boom. It was a lovely finish to a fantastic 2012.
