Tim Prebble has been interviewed by Ande Schurr at “The Big Idea”. The interview is really interesting and full inspiring, don’t miss it!
Sound Designer Tim Prebble is at catch for my freelance series. He has an office across the road from Peter Jackson’s Park Road Post, is a thrice finalist in this year’s Qantas Film and Television Awards for Best Sound Design and has a fan base that only a genre director could rival.
Tim epitomises many of the things that could be classed as best freelance practices. His developmental and DIY attitude with social media, websites and e-commerce; his emphasis on collegial rapport and being in good standing among colleagues; his efforts to map out the territory he wants to play in – exploring his passions – and turning them into viable sources of income.
A recent graduate of an Auckland audio school told me that that his home page is Tim’s blog. The Music of Sound covers it all – from comparing the major audio editing software packages to crowd sourcing sound fx to methods of creating great SFX (Sound Effects).
Packed full of ideas for people in all film and TV departments, Tim Prebble is a freelancer who has raised the bar for those of us wanting to make our passion our work.
