We're aimed at solutions
When you're taking on the elements, external factors and noise such as weather, planes, animals and people can make it difficult to to achieve the most natural sound possible. Ambient noise is rarely avoidable, but is manageable and at Creative Kicks Media we know how important it is to approach things with a level head and the right attitude to achieve the best outcome possible.
We are available for consultation from concept creation to execution, to lend a hand with advice on shooting locations,
attending location recce's, identifying potential issues and what will and won't work.
We do it for the love
Most importantly of all Mike know's the importance of passion, dedication and positive disposition on set.
Because we love it, we hope our happiness we love the feeling of infectious positivity.

The right tools for the job
Mike can cater to 8 channels of wireless in his compact rig (as pictured below) and up to 24 channels in total. We only use broadcast quality equipment, with preferred partners Sound Devices, Allen & Heath, Lectrosonics, Sennheiser and Rycote. This means we keep our standards top notch and we'll give you the best in all situations.
Additionally, we've invested in Sound Devices NoiseAssist. If you haven't heard of it, NoiseAssist is an advancement in audio recording tech which suppresses background noise instantly. It's like noise cancelling headphones for our mics and is perfect for dealing with those not so ideal locations.
When rolling, we ALWAYS ensure TWO additional redundant recordings are recording as a back up, to avoid those "uh-oh" moments
