Joe, Lawrence & Adam appointed Creative Directors

We’re extremely pleased to announce that Joe Wilkinson, Lawrence Kendrick and Adam Smyth have been appointed Creative Directors at String and Tins.

In addition to their sweet sound design chops, they continue to manage larger sound teams on ambitious projects, providing their clients with a consistent overview of the whole sound creative from briefing to final mix - we are thrilled to celebrate their development with you all.

Lawrence’s wizardry managing complex productions is his super power. In addition to the considerable challenges faced supervising opera singers and theatres of actors for recent Amazon and Sainsburys films, his work bringing together a whole world of foley, binaural recordings, music and sound design for this epic Oculus spot can be heard here:

Adam had the demanding task of music supervising an orchestra for Audi, at night, on a working dock in Ukraine. Followed by recording it all again with a second orchestra in Prague, before performing the music live to picture with a third orchestra at the BFI. Ah… and he flew out to Snoop’s house in LA to music supervise Just Eat. Fortunately one of Adam’s super powers is unrelenting cool under pressure, have a listen to him and Snoop here:

Joe’s musicality and calmness are his super powers. He has written and supervised the recording of orchestral works for the World Wildlife Fund, flown out to the Mugello race track in Italy to record a Ducati superbike at speed, and most recently helped give emotional depth to this United Nations film which tracks the journey of a refugee from the waist down only, here:

Making time for experimentation and creative discussion remains at the core of what we do. We love talking about the possibilities of sound and would encourage you to use us as a creative resource early on in your filmmaking process.

To talk directly with Adam, Joe, Lawrence or indeed with any member of our team, get in touch with our MD Rachel or Production Manager Eimear!

Will & Mike,

String and Tins founders x
