Highly recommended.

A trusted, experienced sound recordist that never fails to get great audio in all sorts of tricky situations. From formal commercial shoots to drama, Paul has always been reliable, good to work with and more than happy to help out in anyway required. He’s also particularly good at getting getting background noise shut down! Comes with his own kit so you don’t need to worry about a thing. Highly recommended. 6 Stars!
