Cameron Hills

Senior Lecturer-Sound

My parents were artists and performers. They produced sculpture, light shows, multi-media performances, sound and light environments, books etc.  I was the 'technical' member of the family and from the arrival of a Ferrograph series 4 tape recorder when I was still at junior school I enjoyed working on the sound content of our artistic activities. After a few years working as an Audio-Visual Aids Technician in a large London school I started Film work in 1979 with a Documentary production house in Central London becoming a Freelance Sound Recordist in 1985.

Over the last 30+ years I have enjoyed sound recording all over the world on Television Documentary, Theatre, Corporate, Commercials and Drama productions.
