When you’re on set, you sometimes get only a single chance to capture a significant moment, so it’s important to get everything right the first time around. Imagine getting back after a long day of shooting only to find that the audio is muffled, distorted, or otherwise unusable – beyond rescue by even the best mixer. That’s a nightmare scenario, but fortunately, it’s easy to avoid by hiring an experienced, professional sound recordist.

Sound is important if you want your finished video to give the right impression, but if you’re not hiring soundies every day, you might not know how to identify a pro. Here at Definition, we work on more than 500 corporate videos every year, and we’ve worked with plenty of freelance sound recordists. We’ve created a list of reliable, talented sound recordists, and we’re making it freely available online. To contact any of them, just click on our list of the best British sound recordists  – and if you reach out to them, be sure to let them know that Definition sent you.

Once you’ve created a great sounding video, go ahead and check out our lists of marketing awards and corporate video awards that you can enter it in.

If you want to produce high-quality video content but don’t know where to get started when it comes to sourcing talent, writing a script or editing, contact our MD, Jamie.
