Creative Director & Sound Designer.
Steve is Sound Designer, Creative Director & founder of BOMO Audio. Steve’s wide ranging experience as an audio professional has, over the years encompassed many areas of expertise including, film, TV, theatre, live events, art installations, advertising, music and education.
Steve graduated from the Audio / Visual Design course at The Arts Institute, Bournemouth in 1995. He then moved to London, played guitar and sang in a variety of indie bands for the remainder of the 90s, being lucky enough to tour the UK and parts of Europe as he did so. As his indie star waned, Steve moved to the other side of the mixing desk, making a name for himself as a Sound Designer, working mainly on theatre productions and in the live art scene in London. During this time he also began lecturing on the subjects of sound design, theatre design & post-production at Goldsmiths, University of London. Highlights of this period of Steve’s career include working with Kevin Spacey & The Old Vic Theatre; being shortlisted for the World Stage Design Awards 2005 in Toronto; designing the sound for the largest, free theatre event in London at the South Bank; several years of successful runs of shows at the Edinburgh International Festival and receiving favourable notices from many of the UK’s leading theatre critics including The Guardian, Timeout: London and The Independent.
In 2008, Steve moved to Dubai in order to join Creative Force Audio Production, one of the region’s leading audio post-production studios. During this time, he worked on a range of high profile projects for the world’s leading brands including Pepsi, HSBC, Emirates, Visa, Unilever, Panasonic, Sony, and international agencies such as; Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, JWT, FITCH, BBDO & DDB as well as many high profile projects for the Dubai Government. Steve holds a Masters degree in Post Production: Sound Design from the Skillset Screen Academy, Bournemouth University at Distinction level and was awarded a “Letter of Commendation” by the University Board for the quality of his work.
The Picture House.
Our Pro Tools equipped Sound Design studio is situated, rather fittingly, in The Picture House, Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth’s oldest surviving cinema building. Originally built in 1911, The Picture House screened it’s last feature in the 1960s, but is now a creative hub for media companies and digital creatives.
According to a recent Tech City UK report, Bournemouth has become the fastest growing digital economy in the UK, ousting London and the Silicon Roundabout in favour of our own Silicon Beach. So, aside from Bournemouth being a beautiful place to live and work, it is also home to many, exciting creative companies and talented individuals working in the digital, media and creative industries.
The Picture House, with its own film / photography studios, equipped with large format green screen and infinity cove, set build facilities and in-house film production companies, alongside our BOMO Audio’s own high quality Sound Design & Audio Post Production services, The Picture House has become an exciting, one-stop shop production facility, located 10 minutes walk from Bournemouth rail station.
