The Team
Nicholas Davies
Rhys Young
Meurig Hailstone

Nick is an experienced sound designer, dubbing mixer, and location recordist.

 

Since graduating from Film School in 2006, winning a BAFTA Cymru for his graduation film, Nick has specialised in sound. 

 

He's worked on cinema productions, TV programmes for many of the major broadcasters - including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Discovery - and commercials and promos for clients including Waitrose, Starbucks, The Royal Navy, and VR projects for Shell and Samsung.

Rhys has worked in the industry for over 6 years as a recording engineer, sound designer, foley artist and more recently dubbing mixer.

 

Rhys also carries out Audio Description work for parent company CTV Sound Studios.

 

Rhys is a fluent Welsh speaker, perfect for those bilingual projects.

 

He's worked on several cartoons for Welsh broadcaster S4C. He also has extensive experience of recording voiceovers and mixing commercials and corporate videos for clients including the Welsh Government, Sofa Sofa, HMRC, NHS and Arriva Trains.

Meurig has been with Hoot's parent company CTV Sound Studios since 2003 and has worked on numerous animation re-voicing projects as both a recording engineer and dubbing mixer.

 

Also being a Welsh speaker helps Meurig with his regular audio-description recording and voice over sessions.

Meurig is our resident technical geek, who feels equally at home either behind the mixing desk or with a soldering iron in his hand, fixing, installing or even modifying equipment.

It can be a busy old world...
 

...and while you're creating your Films, TV Programmes, Corporate Videos, Promos, Commercials or Virtual Reality projects you'll have plenty on your plate.

We're here to help you get the most out of your sound, to give it the attention & creativity it deserves. 

We'll nurture it, help it grow, and once your soundtrack is ready to leave our nest you'll be proud of how it sounds and what it adds to your project. Something to Hoot about.

How do we work?

 

We believe great talent is key, that's why we've got some of the best sound designers and mixers to work on your projects. Collaboration is at the heart of our approach, listening to your needs and your ideas. Forever evolving, forever learning and forever passionate about sound. 

 

And the kit? Well there's two newly refurbished Pro Tools studios, a large voice over booth, beautiful sounding microphones and the ability to connect with studios around the world.
