Malcolm Cromie

Sound

Although he worked on his fair share of Kiwi productions, sound recordist Malcom Cromie carried his equipment still further afield. Over a career spanning more than 45 years, he spent time in Australia, the Philippines, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Cromie began as a camera assistant, before making his home in sound. He worked in both documentary (Mercury Lane, In Bligh's Wake) and drama (Hope and Wire, Cannes-nominated short film Blue). After a move to the UK in 2016, he continued to work on everything from reality shows to a run of features. Malcolm Cromie died in Cardiff on 10 August 2021; he was 65.  

RIP Malcolm, you made working with you easy. I pinched signing off with 'Cheers' from you ... using it always makes me think of you. Colleague Vaughan Maybury pays tribute
