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

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.

We will definitely get in touch with him for future film projects.” Oliver Coward -Director of Photography & Director / Producer

What Producers / Production Managers Say About Me
“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

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.
