“When the sound is bad you notice the sound, when the sound is good you notice the pictures..."
Dr. Neil Hillman MPSE describes himself as ‘an organic and free-range’ production sound recordist for drama, documentary and world-stage Outside Broadcast events such as the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games. As well as recording sound on location, Neil also works as a Supervising Sound Editor in post-production sound, responsible for the editing, mixing and delivery of the overall soundtrack on feature films and television drama. His Birmingham-based audio post-production company “The Audio Suite” was formed in the early 2000s and quickly gained a world class reputation for its sound services to feature film and television clients.
