SALLIS BENNEY THEATRE & LIGHTHOUSE, BRIGHTON
CAPTURING THE PERFORMANCE: RECORDING SOUND ON SET - WORKSHOP
Get deeper into the production sound recording/mixing process with one of the UK’s leading sound practitioners, illustrated with clips, demonstrations and anecdotes.
Ray Beckett has worked as a location sound recordist on many documentaries and music recordings, and as a production sound recordist on over 50 feature films.
Working with leading directors such as James Ivory, Ken Russell, Ralph Fiennes, Ken Loach and Kathryn Bigelow, Ray’s long list of credits includes Letter to Brezhnev, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, The Hurt Locker and The Two Faces of January.
Throughout his career, Ray has been a keen user of new technologies for on-set sound recording, and was an early adopter of location digital recording in 1983 on the Merchant Ivory film The Bostonians.
In 1987, Ray was BAFTA nominated for his work on A Room With a View (Merchant Ivory), and received an Academy Award, BAFTA and Cinema Audio Society award for his work on The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow).
We were delighted to have Ray joining us on both days of The Sound of Story, as a speaker on Friday, and as a workshop leader on Saturday.
