Gavin was the sound recorder/mixer on my independent feature, "St. Francis! A Wonderful Dude!" and he was outstanding. The dedication he has for his craft coupled with his professionalism made for a wonderful production experience with him on set. He truly is someone you want to work on your projects. I have never heard better sound on any project that I have been a part of. Extremely crisp, clear and precise sound. We had some sound issues we had to deal with on the set--airplanes, wind, helicopters and Gavin handled them like a complete pro--listening to his sound afterwards, you would have never known that we had to deal with those issues--he is just that good.The sound quality on my film was elevated to a whole new level by having Gavin on the set. I would highly recommend him for your sound needs on any project that you had in mind.


Professional, on time, went above and beyond.
