Becky Thomson - Film  TV Location Sound


I’ve mixed fully funded feature films, HETV dramas and many documentaries during a long and varied career where every job continues to add to the experience I take to the next.

Occasionally I take work as a post production sound designer which has given me additional insights for location mixing, aiding me to provide the best possible service to the post team.  In drama I maintain very good communications with Post which is often commented on as a significant benefit.
