About

Jules has been a sound recordist and sound postproduction sound engineer for film and TV for 15 years working and living in places such as China, Africa, South Korea, Scotland and Australia. Throughout this he has also stayed in touch with part time teaching at colleges and universities.

After completing a BA Music (honours) at the University of Western Sydney in 2002 Jules began teaching at TAFE while continuing to play guitar in bands and composing/performing electroacoustic music based on prepared guitar, malfunctioning media and field recordings.

Jules then got involved with sound postproduction work which ended up being the beginning of his film and TV career. In 2006 he took a job in Beijing China working in sound post and as a location sound recordist working on documentaries travelling through various countries including; Africa, South Korea and China. While he had previously worked as a sound recordist, it was here that he developed a passion for documentary sound recording and the ‘run and gun’ filming format. Jules went on to work on Chinese feature films and numerous other documentary shoots in location and postproduction. In postproduction roles Jules has worked in dialogue editing, FX editing, Foley and mixing.

After a number of years away Jules returned to Sydney and continued to work in the film/TV industry in both location and post sound working on feature films, documentary, TV and countless online and TV advertising.

While enjoying his time living and working abroad the plan was always to eventually move back to academia through his own research and an eventual return to full time teaching. This brought about his current Doctor of Creative Arts candidature at the University of Technology Sydney and back to working with sound outside of film and TV.
