I finished sound vocational school in 2008, and immediately worked for a couple of radio stations, but I rapidly developed a taste and expertise for production sound and sound editing, with occasional incursions into theatre and live shows, where I also do lighting.

 

According to my working colleagues and people I met over the time, I'm a very professional soundman that loves professional development.

Dynamic, organized, resolutive, hard working and responsible, being able to tackle hard projects. I push my limits to find solutions for any problems that might arise and I'm compromised with my team and current project. I'm a quick learner and I soak myself into info that might be useful for the task at hand.

 

I'm mainly a sound recordist and editor with experience in corporates, branded films, short movies and features. A reliable soundie fully equipped to get a professional recording.

 

Also skillful when it comes to post production, whether delivering a clean and polished mix, a natural sound or unique atmospheres that provide any production with a distinct feeling of their own. Currently soaking myself in the world of hardcore sound design.

Most of my post experience is based on audio DAWs such as ProTools or Logic, and I regularly use Adobe Audition for mastering and iZotope RX for noise cancelling. I have libraries of my own that cover ambiences, footsteps and crazier stuff as well.

 

Although not my main expertise, I'm also comfortable working with video software. I edited a 60' amateur movie using Adobe Premiere and Final Cut, and I'm also familiar with DSLR cameras and software like Compressor, VirtualDubMod and Subtitle Workshop. I guess I simply have a technical mindset that allows me to quickly learn the basics of many kinds of software and hardware. You can see other interesting projects and unrelated stuff I take part of in BANANAS.

Nick Wyatt, DOP


"Albert worked as a sound recordist and designer on two funded shorts that I wrote and co-produced. He has a natural ear and talent for sound, is resourceful and has excellent technical skills. Albert's appreciation and passion for sound comes across in his work, he is a pleasure to have on set and he comes highly recommended."

Katie Boyles, Writer and Script Developer


"Our successful short film World in a Room is another example of great ideas in action. Both technically superb, and artfully articulated, Albert had added superb production value to the film through his sound design. His work allows the audience to engage much further into the media, creating a much richer landscape within the film. We've chosen Albert for his willingness to develop a full, and thorough understanding of the narrative and directions. We highly recommend Albert's services for anyone seeking a fully committed and efficient service."
