Chris McCallum was the Audio Engineer on a 13-part TV series (Surfing The Menu: Next Generation) that I was Line Producer on. He is an incredibly passionate man when it comes his craft, and his skills are beyond reproach. I was never in any doubt that he was going beyond and above to get his job done, and done to an exceptionally high standard. The shoot in question involved filming on a long road trip through challenging and remote parts of Australia. This is when Chris’ personality and ‘can do’ attitude came to the fore. He is a problem solver, very easy to get along with, and has a great sense of humour. He engaged exceptionally well with all members of the crew, and helped forge a strong sense of camaraderie. Chris played an integral role in making the shoot both successful and enjoyable, and I would not hesitate in recommending him for other productions.
2016 gave me the opportunity to explore areas of my own country that I hadn’t seen before! Aside from a documentary shoot in China, I was able to tour all over the western side of Australia up to Darwin for the awesome experience that was Surfing the Menu: Next Generation. I was also lucky enough to complete all the audio post on this project spending many hours creating the sounds of chopping and frying for the international mixes of the show!
