JUST A SOUND GUY.
The Life of a Film & Television Recordist.

By Ken Mellor Sound Recordist

Paperback book. 240 pages.
60 pages of black and white photos.

Have you ever wondered what life is like for a sound recordist? Now you can find out through the eyes of a man who enjoyed many years working in the world of television and film. From heart-warming to harrowing, he’s endured. Ken Mellor writes with enthusiasm and humour on many film-related subjects, from working with the likes of Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise to filming for a news company covering overseas wars. Ever-changing technology was the least of Ken’s problems.

Deciding to train in London in the early 1960s led Ken on a journey which would uncover many interesting tales, from war-torn North Vietnam, to the Northern Ireland troubles and the long-running miners’ strike. The book includes light-hearted stories which, amongst others, involved a motorised armchair, a shrine to Elvis Presley and a man’s passion for the flanged wheel!
