THE PRODUCER - SAM DOWSON

Sam and Jem are no strangers. The two of them studied together at university and have worked on a number of projects with one another, from short films to music videos. 

 

Sam has had a wide and varied career in the media industry. While studying at Ravensbourne College, he worked as a cameraman and editor for QTV, a concierge company, that wanted to promote hotels, restaurants, shops and events that their members would be interested in. As he came to the end of his university life, with the vision of one day being a producer/director, he was inspired by some wise words given to him. 'To be the best producer or director, it always helps to know what everyone in the team does to make the final product happen.' Thus, he took it upon himself to learn about as many areas of the industry as possible. He has worked as an editor for Disney, Camera assisted at the Baftas, edit assisted and QC'd for an Iranian TV channel, made music videos in Spain, ran the post production department at PR firm TVC and post produced global television/digital adverts for H&O.

At the age of 18 he opened his first recording studio in his home town, Derby, at the popular rock and roll music venue, 'The Victoria Inn'. Adam recorded and produced music for local artist like Thee Deadtime Philharmonic, The Telephones and The Downpage Liberation. At the same time he recorded sound for zero budget short films for fun and found a love for capturing clean dialogue. He also used his recording studio facilities to do sound design, dubbing mixing and ADR recording. Adam then went on to Boom Operate for other Production Sound Mixers on Feature films and TV Drama where he has continued to learn and progress. Eventually Adam became very busy recording sound on Commercials, corporate videos and TV broadcast. He decided to put his music career on hold and focus on film and TV. He has now started working mainly on Dramas as Production Sound Mixer. Adam believes that great sound is extremely important to telling stories through film, capturing original performances cinematically is his ultimate aim. He collaborates with Directors early and really gets behind the script. He says its extremely important to get him and his team involved early in pre production to give them best chance to capture original performances as clean as possible. Feel free to shorten it.
