Mike Westgate

Sound Mixer and Recordist

Mike Westgate began working in sound in his native England. Since moving to New Zealand in the 1970s, he has contributed his skills to documentaries, drama series, and more than 20 features, and passed them on to a new generation, both on film sets and as a guest tutor at South Seas Film & Television School.  

A career should possibly be viewed in the sense that you've done good work, worked on worthwhile projects and used that to take care of other goals such as family. Mike Westgate, in an interview with sound man Ande Schurr
