Music Production & Sound Engineering

Former SSR student Peter Bailey has contacted us with details of his career since leaving SSR.

Peter studied on our Audio Engineering course, graduated in 2007, and is now a freelance ‘location sound recordist’ working on various feature film and television projects.

Peter Bailey:
"I got my first real gig by helping out on the post production sound for a short film via an advert on the SSR notice board. The director was so impressed with my work that he passed my name onto a film producer who was looking for a location sound recordist.

Even though I hadn’t done any recording on a film set before, I used all the same principles I learnt at SSR to do the job. From there (by networking like mad) I went straight into location sound recording for dramas, short films, documentaries, and feature films, and I haven’t stopped since."

Peter has also just completed work for a feature film called “Of Time and the City” which is hotly tipped to win an Oscar at the annual Academy Awards in Hollywood!
