Aris Anastassopoulos
Sound for Films
London - Newcastle Upon Tyne

Profile :
Being raised in a cinephile family having watched hundreds of films and theatre plays since a toddler, it is no wonder that Aris was inclined to follow a career in film making. 
An experienced Film & Television Production Sound Mixer with a background in a wide range of demanding and complex professional audio applications, Aris got his Sound Engineer Diploma from SAE London and he has been involved with cutting edge and demanding professional audio application setups for electronic music performances, open air sound systems and film shoots.

Gathering 15 years of experience in the industry Aris has worked on shootings in Germany, Spain, Italy, Brussels and the Greek islands, on 14 feature films to date and a plethora of commercials as well as TV shows and documentaries. 
Versatile and cooperative with an extensive list of the industry’s finest equipment including digital recorders, microphones, radios, custom sound trolley, iem systems, advanced power & monitoring setups and more, he was awarded a fellowship for a business start up in the UK through Digital City Innovation where he has been operating from since March 2011, based in London and Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Keen on pushing the envelope of sound recording and mixing techniques, he has worked on a total of 4 studios to date, including a Dolby certified mastering studio specialising in cinematic releases.

Aris pursued his professional audio career as an assistant audio engineer working in classical orchestra ensembles and opera plays in Greece, at the Athens Music Megaron, Herodium theatre and a number of the country’s highest end auditoriums and venues. Having worked on Live venues he then built his own stages and PA systems utilising cutting edge technology and innovative setups for electronic music performances and open air sound systems, noticeably setting up one of Europe’s premier 5.1 sound systems for electronic music on the island of Samothraki, where he set up a number of shows for contemporary electronic music artists.

His love and affinity for films drew him towards production sound mixing and audio recording for films which is his area of speciality over the last 15 years.
Having a wide range of experience from TV to film and documentaries, his extended insight in the post production process is a valuable asset for every production, saving time, money and being able to deliver realistic and original performances, captured while filming on set.
He can deliver the best results catering production needs and demands, without restricting actor performances or compromising the director's aesthetic criteria and insight for each film.

Aris is the label manager and A & R of Electronic Soundscapes.
