A graduate of the LWT / ITV Sound Department (13 years staff), Iain cut his teeth on classic prime-time shows such as 'The Royal Variety Performance', ‘Friday Night Live’ and ‘Live from Her Majesty's’. Originally trained as a Boom Operator, before moving into the production gallery, Iain is a freelance Sound Supervisor, Gram. Op. and Technical Producer, specialising in Light Entertainment and Sport. He has been a regular freelancer for SKY over the last 6 years, working in their new state of the art studio complex, as well as The BBC, ITV and many independent production companies.
Iain helped launch and develop ITV’s facility business – The London Studios, before establishing independent production company ‘Fire Mountain Productions’. Having produced The London Studios / ITV’s cult model animation series ‘The Treacle People’, for which he received a BAFTA-nomination and CITV’s current 52-part live-action hit ‘Captain Mack’, Iain has a 360 degree in-depth knowledge of the production process. With well-seasoned, senior production abilities, Iain is a ‘safe pair of hands’ solution to production staffing shortfalls.
