Richard Gott Sound recordist Wales and West Midlands (near Birmingham)


I’m a freelance location sound recordist with over sixteen years experience working on observational documentaries, current affairs programmes and corporate productions. Recent credits include: ‘H is for Hawk: the next chapter’ Mike Birkhead Associates for BBC Natural World and PBS, ‘Grand Designs’ Boundless Productions for Channel 4 and ‘Gardener’s World’ BBC2, amongst many others. I regularly work in Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff areas, and anywhere in Wales, as I split my time between two main bases: Aberystwyth in Mid Wales, and Ledbury in the West Midlands with a third 'lily pad' in Cardiff. I’m particularly interested in working on projects that lean towards any of these end results: educational, ethical, artistic, ‘good-cause’, co-operative, collaborative, meaningful, pro-social. And I’m particularly interested in working with any of these general areas of subject matter: sustainability, environment, society, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, the arts, social history, the natural world, politics. I’m a full member of IPS (the Institute of Professional Sound). I hold an NVQX3 certificate in Health and Safety, I have an enhanced DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service criminal records check). I’m a member of BECTU and have a current public liability insurance policy. I hold a valid passport, a full UK driving license and I have a basic level of conversational Welsh
