WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Paul is a talented and original sound designer, who has produced exciting soundscapes for me on a variety of international kids TV programmes.
Each series creates its’ own unique world, for which Paul is a master at creating innovative sounds and effects. Paul embodies a perfect mix of creative talent – and efficiency – along with the ability to produce new and inventive sound designs specifically tailored to whatever challenges he may be presented.
Paul has helped me out across several long running series – Dani's House, Sadie J, Dani's Castle. I am a nightmare in that I know what I don't want and sometimes what I want – but Paul patiently listens and we work out what I actually need. I love his musical background which you hear from dialogue, music, all the way to a rich bed of Foley. A great ear for detail and far too patient for my change of ideas and whims. Brilliant!
FFM came on board our feature at the last minute, and swiftly delivered top-notch foley for several key scenes. Our sound designer was particularly impressed, and still comments on how much FFM's work has added to the production.
I would not hesitate to recommend FFM. Great communication, quick delivery and excellent work.
