I’M RYAN

Ryan Hall began his journey into sound in 2009 as a final mix engineer for a production house in Johannesburg – mixing audio for a variety of reality shows on Vuzu and Mnet. A few years later, he broke free from the daily grind, moved to Durban, and began his life as a freelance final mix engineer. During this time he was offered a chance as a location sound recordist on a shoot, whereby he quickly sunk his ears into this exciting realm of location sound. Throughout these past years as a location sound recordist, Ryan has gained a wealth of experience on location shoots for Documentaries, International TV shows, live shows, TV adverts and Corporate shoots – you will need to look at his credits for all the details.

Some of the production & post-production sound projects include: Wedding Bashers, Top Billing, Break Da Beat, IDOLS, Xfactor, MTVB Behind the Story, 21 Icons, Hooked on Cricket, SA Surf Series, Wildfly, Inside Angling, Carte Blanche,  Dolphin TV, 101 World cups and so many more. My end Clients Range from Nat Geo Wild, Mnet, Vuzu, Supersport, SABC 3, to non-broadcast corporate clients.  Experienced in audio from start to finish! 

Ryan currently still freelances as well as being the Chief sound engineer at Final Mix sound studio based in Durban.

 

From location sound to final mix…I’m all about sound!

 

Location Sound Recordist

A production sound mixer / location sound recordist / location sound engineer / ENG sound, or simply ‘the sound man’ is the member of the production crew responsible for recording all the sound recordings on set during the film making, or production, through the use of professional audio equipment. This requires the deployment of microphones, placement of boom operators, choice of recording media, and the mixing of audio signals in real time.

With so much emphasis on visuals, sound can often be overlooked along with its golden rule – you can’t always fix bad sound! If you get it right the first time, you will make a good production into a great production. The real solution to getting great sound is by having a separate skilled location sound recordist. Remember, sound is half the entertainment after all.
