about CHRIS CARROLL
I began my audio career in 2005 after graduating from Pulse College, Dublin with an honors certificate for Sound Engineering. I worked for a period in live sound. Firstly, with Peter Gabriel at Real World studio's in Wiltshire, UK as part of his 2005 "Still Growing Up" tour. I continued working live gigs in and around Dublin live music venues and also worked at larger stadium concerts for the likes of Sting and Rhianna in Dublin's Croke Park and RDS arenas! Shortly after I began my work in location sound, post production and creative sound design. Soon realizing that this was the area of sound I enjoyed most as an engineer, and where I could best apply my skills. Beginning with an internship on Channel 4 series "Teachers" for Tiger Aspect Productions in the UK, I went on to work on various productions throughout the years including "Trivia" for RTE and "Mooneboy" for Deadpan Pictures. In late 2012 I was recruited by Irish animation studio Brown Bag Films to work in their audio post-production house. I've been credited on many of their productions including Doc McStuffins, The Octonauts, Bing Bunny, Trouble in Paradise and Peter Rabbit. After 3 very successful years in Brown Bag I left in 2015 to pursue a freelance career.
I've since worked on Irish feature films "Get Up and Go" and "Michael Inside" along with various commercials and television shows. I worked on 3 IFB funded shorts as Production Sound Mixer in 2017. "Acorn" which was shown and well received at last year's Galway Film Festival, "Confession" and "Catcalls". I've continued working on projects as post-production sound engineer, mixing, editing and sound design for commercials, film, tv, radio and podcasts. I also continue to work as a boom operator for bigger productions and recently wrapped on the production of Irish/Sweedish co production "Rig 45" which will be broadcast on UTV in 2018. If you think I'd fit into your team and would like to discuss an upcoming production please get in touch. All of my details are on the "Contact" page, or you can leave yours and i'll be sure to get back to you. I'm happy to take on jobs however big or small. I've a full list of production credits on the "Credits" page. If your interested in the equipment I use please visit the "Equipment" page.
Thanks for reading!
I've worked on many feature films, television shows and commercials as the boom operator. Not only is the role physically challenging, there's also a very high level of both technical skill, and people skills, that are required to ensure pristine audio, and comfortable cast and crew.
