Jake Bourton

Sound Trainee/Assistant

  • Location: Wales
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

As a recent graduate of a Music Technology Master’s degree studied in Swansea I am a polite, approachable and hardworking individual with a great enthusiasm for working within sound departments in the film and television industry, having previously worked on award winning productions such as Bad Wolf’s Beddgelert.

In order to gain as much experience as possible and learn the basics of sound department workflow many low budget, short film and student film posts were undertaken as sound recordist and boom operator throughout the time at university. Through these roles, it was discovered that my ability to speak Welsh is an invaluable asset on some productions.

Main interests include music and working with sound in the film and television industry. Having worked in pre-production, on set and in post-production sound gives an excellent knowledge of the production pipeline. Experiencing this has helped to work well within a team as well as independently, using my own initiative, ensuring that everything is done to the best of my ability. I am available to work full time, have a full clean driver’s license, an up to date DBS check and willing to work flexibly as needed by the production.
