John Patrick, Sound

John Patrick, Sound

John is a Dunedin based field recorder with over 25 years of experience in all forms of sound recording and production. He has worked in radio, television, films and live recording.

He has a keenly tuned ear and a love of music and had no job so SOTK absorbed him. In 25 years as a freelance operator, shooting docos all over the world, he is as happy working in the tropics as in the mountains, at sea, or underground. SOTK offers all of these experiences and more.

When you hear lovely noises, riveting conversation or heavenly music in this film, John has been there with his microphones and his peculiar wit. A day on a film set can often be long and exhausting with little relief but when John is around the day flies by. He has an endless supply of nearly funny jokes and twisted takes on reality between munching on a never ending supply of lollies.
