Recommendations

I just wanted to say that the work that Karl and his assistant did on my recent movie was the best location sound work I've had on any of my films. THANK YOU!!!!

Grandfather Films

Karl worked on our short film Bored Games and he was a true pro, turning up with all his own kit and knowing his job inside out. He was great fun to have around, very down-to-earth, a huge hit with the ladies and even cooked us a gluten-free cake. Highly recommended!

Walnut Pictures

I've worked with Karl on a number of projects now and always found him completely reliable, calm and friendly under pressure, highly capable and a pleasure to work with. If you can book him, do!

Mythica Entertainment

Karl was a great addition to our crew. We'll work with him again in the future!

Grass Roots Media

Easy going, efficient and committed, Karl was a valuable talent and a well liked person on our production.
