PROFILE

Douglas started in the TV & Film industry back in 2009 as a sound recordist & dubbing mixer working on feature films, shorts & programmes like The Only Way Is Essex & Britain’s Got Talent. After four years as a freelancer he took the opportunity to further his knowledge of post production by working in an online/grading specialist MCR at Prime Focus.

During his years at both Prime Focus & then at The Farm Group, Douglas was lucky to work on a range of different editing & grading equipment & software on a plethora of genres from comedy to documentary, entertainment to drama.

On leaving The Farm Group in 2017, Douglas returned to freelance work, where he operates within both the video and audio fields, fulfilling the roles of editor, assistant editor, dubbing mixer or sound recordist, depending on requirements.
