Passion and Purpose

My passion is sound. Focusing on production sound. This is where battles are won and lost that affect how long you are going to spend in post production and the end result if you have a restricted budget that you carefully laid out in pre-production.

Along with Pepsi commericals and recording interviews with A-Listers like Helen Mirren and music idols (to some) Kylie Minogue, I am interested in short and feature length films. People that work on theirs projects for years at a time before shooting. All the ideas, pieces of paper, help, culminating in the words ACTION!.

This is the time when the performance begins, being right there and seeing people hopefully not just delivering lines and mimicking directions but becoming characters. This is very exciting.

You only remember a few sounds in films such as a lightsaber, but dialogue is still king of sound. How many Arni quotes can you think of and how many door slams can you think of?

But maybe I am biased :)

So just like investing time in pre-production to make sure production shooting goes well, I am glad you are taking the time to invest in production sound so you can save a whole new hell of post production. Have a look through my gear and get in touch at the bottom of the page.

look forward to speaking to you soon,

-Matt

“Matt Price is a very capable and professional location sound recordist, with a good collaborative attitude and friendly personality. I would not hesitate to recommend him and look forward to the opportunity of working with him again.” - Gus Alvarez – Director – Short Film Projects

“Matt is not only conscientious and incredibly knowledgeable about his craft, but a joy to work with too.” Will Sheldon – CBBC Friday Download Producer / Director 

“Matt is an exceptionally talented sound man. I couldn’t have chosen a more competent, efficient and reliable sound recordist/ boom operator for my shoot. Matt is an all round nice guy, who is extremely diligent and thorough. My editor has said that she has never seen such thorough and organised sound notes. Matt will definitely be my preferred sound man for future projects. A true delight to work with” - Nichola Wong – Director of Skinship

“I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone, he is a one-man sound solution, who arrives on set geared up to the eyeballs and effortlessly integrates into the fabric of your team. He is sensitive to the needs of actors and of the camera department, and is always happy to discuss, explain or advise on any technical matters. A consummate professional and a consummate human who will be a credit to your crew.”- Oliver William Smith / Director / Cameraman

‘Matt is simply brilliant to work with- always smiling, always in good spirits and gets on with everyone. Plus he’s great at what he does! What more can one want?’ Nour Wazzi - Director, Up On The Roof

We’ve worked with Matt on two projects now, both of which were full length feature films and can honestly say that he has exceeded our expectations on both occasions, The thing with Matt is not only do you get top quality professional sound recording, you also get someone who cares about the overall project and end result just as much as the Director and core team. Matt gets involved on every level. everything he suggests, recommends and brings to the table is always with a view to making things better and is always truly welcome. We can’t say anything but positives about Matt, he’s a true sound recording guru, a great guy and will always be our first port of call for whatever projects we take on. Dominic Tomey – Producer Doorways / My Saviour Feature Films, Breezeblock Productions Ltd

“Just worked with Matt on a short and found him to be hard-working, good at thinking on his feet and just an outright nice guy to be around!” - Lorenzo Levrini – DOP – Short and Feature Films

“Worked with Matt once and from the first moment it felt like In was working with a friend I’ve known all along. Can’t wait until I’ll be on a set with him again. The friendliness and relaxed attitude he brings to the shoot are only rivaled by his high level of professionalism and commitment to the work.” - Yiannis Manolopoulos – DOP 

“When you see Matthew working you suddenly recognise that he really knows what he’s doing. Always on the spot, and always ready to crack a joke at the right moment.” – Simonluca Fraioli – 1st AC – Red Reflections

“A highly skilled sound recordist who on set creates a great up beat atmosphere whilst delivering a top quality product. He has the latest sound equipment which can deliver great quality. Will definitely be using him again.” Samuel Johnson – Director / Camera – Multiple Corporate and Short Film Projects 

Matt was a terrific addition to our crew. Diligent, professional, good humored and – best of all – he cares.” - Chris Mortensen, Mad Universe Producer.

“I have to say it was an absolute joy to have you as a sound recordist on Skinship. Quality of recording is immaculate, very useful wild tracks, great boom placement to capture most intimate detail which will be invaluable throughout the post. Material came to me very well organised and labelled.I am also extremely happy with the reports – very clear and your comments saved me some time trying to figure out what went on. Syncing was done in matter of seconds. All and all, you come across as a person who is creative, professional and values other people’s time- and that’s all I would ever wish for.” - Jeanna Mortimer – Editor

“Matt was a great asset during the shooting of “Lost Generation”. He was a pleasure to work with and provided top quality sound for us, not to mention his great sense of humour and the ability to work with young actors. He also gave input during the shoot for sounds to capture which was vital for us in the sound design. We will definitely get in touch with him for future film projects.” Oliver Coward -Director of Photography & Director / Producer

“Matt was not only a consummate professional in Sound, but also a wonderful team player on a very tight shoot. I highly recommend him for any production!” - Katherine Shannon - 1st AD at Zissou Pictures

“Matt is a brilliant sound recordist. He is always on top of it, ready to roll, be it a drama or a documentary. He is very reliable, competent and really creative, as it takes a lot of skills but also a lot of creativity to figure out a clever and efficient solution to record sound on an under water shoot, like he did in Thinner Than Water. In 5 Voices he showed a lot of team work on a very hectic shoot. I am really looking forward to working with him again. Highly recommend!” - Zaira Brilhante - 5 Voices, Production Manager

“I had the great chance to work with Matt. No matter how tough the project is, Matt is reliable to deliver the best quality work on time. He is young and dynamic, totally dedicated to his work, a real hard worker! I can’t wait to work with him again. I highly recommend him.”Ebru Karacan – Turkey Production Manager – Unfriend Feature Film

“We hired Matt as the Sound Recordist for a shoot for a feature length documentary. He was punctual and had all the right kit and more. The sound he recorded for us was of an excellent quality, especially considering the circumstance (outside in windy conditions and inside a busy restaurant!). When the Editor received the sound files he was amazed at how well the sound was recorded. I look forward to working with Matt again soon!” - Andrew Fawn Producer and Casting Director – Multiple Feature and Short Film Projects

“Matt is a genuinely passionate and gifted sound recordist, and an awesome teacher. Above all, he’s a nice guy and very easy to work with.” – Jamie Touche – Ealing Met Film School

“Matt’s relaxed approach to teaching enabled a comfortable atmosphere within the team that made it easier to learn the basics of using the equipment. The explanations and instructions given were clear and efficient. The practical exercises were engaging and useful as a hands on experience. The atmosphere in the classes was relaxed and organised.” - Bella McCrimmon – Ealing Met Film School

“Matt price is a very helpful teacher, his relaxed attitude makes it easy to really ask delve into the subject and not feel ashamed when there are a few things you don’t understand. He really knows the subject and very helpful. I found it very enjoyable that he teaches hands on with students being able to practice on the kit, rather than only being told the theory.” Antonia Ackermans - Ealing Met Film School

“It was great to have a sound tutor who not only knew his stuff really well, but also knew how to teach it to us. Matt’s a consummate professional through and through, and I’d recommend him to anyone, if you’re a sound professional or completely new to it, there’s always something new to learn from Matt.” Dan Rajan – Ealing Met Film School

“Matt was the first teacher I had in sound, and quickly taught me all the basics, so after just an hour we were out using the kit the correct way. He also got me very interested in sound, so I’m aspiring to become a sound recordist myself now!” Simon Richert - Ealing Met Film School
