Ken Saville

Sound

Ken Saville left TVNZ in 1980 to pursue a freelance career in sound recording, and has since worked up an impressively long filmography of both locally and internationally-shot films and television series. His work can be heard in many of Peter Jackson and Gaylene Preston’s films; he also contributed to the BAFTA nominated soundtrack of District 9.

Yeah, I’m part of a big family all the time. Some families are bigger than others. Ken Saville on working in the New Zealand screen industry
