Dick Reade

Sound

Sound recordist Dick Reade's list of awards includes gongs for his work on The Navigator, Mt Zion, After the Waterfall and When Love Comes — and an Emmy nomination for TV’s Buggin’ with Ruud. In 2007 he was named SPADA/Onfilm industry champion. After more than a decade with state television, Reade went freelance in the early 80s. These days he runs his own studio in West Auckland.

There’s no one way to do things, only guidelines, so it’s good to try for different effects and see what works…I’ve never been able to do what I’ve been told – ever since I was about five there’s always been that questioning rebel thing. Dick Reade in Onfilm, June 2008, page 22
