Hello, I’m Patrick Oldacre and I am a Manchester based location sound recordist with 26 years experience working on all aspects of television and film production. I am accustomed to working to tight deadlines and under difficult or sensitive circumstances. I maintain a state of the art sound kit, customisable for everything from full blown feature film production to on-the-hoof minimal crew documentaries. I am comfortable working in a vast array of environments ranging from tropical jungles to sideways rain on Welsh hillsides. I have lived abroad for significant periods of my life and have an innate sensitivity to different cultures. I can bring a wealth of professional savvy to your shoot and pride myself on my amenable demeanour and patience. I am fully insured, DBS checked and have undergone BBC Health and Safety training. I offer a 5% discount on any shoots which take me to tropical beach locations.
