Paul Lane

Sound-Designer Engineer

I am a highly experienced and creative TV Sound Designer and Engineer with a strong commercial background in TV, Radio Drama and Music, working with the latest ProTools 5.1 HD hardware and software.

Experienced in designing and mixing on-air commercials and promos, documentaries, corporate and marketing campaigns as well as other programmes for broadcast, I have a talent for creative thinking with distinctive flair and style across my work.

I work quickly and creatively and have many years' experience with sonic branding, recording and mixing. I developed my post production audio skills in the mid 90's at the BBC Radio Drama department where I discovered my real passion for sound design.

I have also written and produced music for the BBC and Disney - including the Emmy Award winning Jim Henson's 'Bear in a Big Blue House'. Although I write mostly for my own entertainment now, I find having a musical background a great advantage in sound design and mixing. An example of this was achieving a Gold Promax Award for 'Scrubs' on ABC1. You can hear this on my Showreel page. I also recently mixed "Now What" a track on the album 'Alistair the Optimist' which can be downloaded from iTunes.

I have an in-depth knowledge of the technical stuff too which helps when working at a new facility. From hardware patching to software integration I've been fortunate to work (and commission studios) in large facilities where anything from Avid and Interplay to FCP systems are in place. KVM switches - ISDN routers - handling embedded source packages from complex studio outputs via BNCS and EVS to AVID is something I'm very familiar with.

Through my work I have many valuable contacts of some of the top broadcast engineers, IT, operational and specialist post production support.

Some of the highlights over the last few years include:

  • Sound designer across the BT Sport Launch 
  • Every major sporting launch since set-up including the coveted Champions League
  • Commissioning BT Sport's new audio suites at Timeline TV - iCity London
  • Several Promax awards for best use of sound design.
  • Head of Sound ESPN UK 
  • Senior Sound Designer for Walt Disney Company
  • Creating two state of the art post production audio suites for ESPN/Disney
  • Sound designing new channel launches and campaigns for BT Sport ESPN and Disney

This includes the launch of BT Sport in the UK (August 2013) - Every major sport on ESPN including Barclays Premiership Football - NBA - NFL - AVIVA Rugby and Also countless Disney commercials and channel launches including Cinemagic - Disney's flagship HD Movie Channel
