    About me

    I am an enthusiastic and driven sound editor and mixer that realised my passion for audio production through a music tech background. I started working on small scale corporate films and charity promos but quickly progressed to large scale productions and top quality TV shows. I have recently begun freelancing at Pinewood Studios in Shepperton, editing foreign film overdubs for Disney and Marvel.

    Craig has regularly done audio mixes for Jack Robinson Ltd over the past year and has shown flare and imagination in every case. He is a hard worker and copes professionally with any versions and changes from the clients. He has composed his own music for the mixes on several occasions and I've been impressed with his musical talents and sound design capabilities.”
