Good day,

My name is Martijn Scholte.

I’m a Amsterdam based freelance location sound recordist with over twenty years experience working on observational documentaries, commercials, current affairs programmes and corporate productions.

I’m particularly interested in working on projects that lean towards any of these end results: educational, ethical, artistic, good-cause’, co-operative, collaborative, meaningful, pro-social. And I’m particularly interested in working with any of these general areas of subject matter: sustainability, environment, society, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, the arts, social history, the natural world, politics.

I’m a member of both CAS (Cinema Audio Society) and AMPS (Association Of Motion Picture Sound). I have a current public liability insurance policy. I hold a valid passport, I have a good level of conversational English and a valid ATA Carnet.

My main kit comprises a Sound Devices Nexus/833 twelve channel mixer/dual-media recorder receiver which enables me to simultaneously supply high quality Bwav files as well as smaller AAC files for transcription purposes. I have many different microphones for dialogue recording depending on the environment/circumstances and also a wireless handheld, presenter stick mic’. I have six radio mic kits and 8 Tentacle sync timecode boxes to keep my mixer and cameras in frame-accurate sync all day. I back up all my recordings.

It is not about the arrows, it is about the archer !
