Christian Storms...seasoned producer turned sound recordist...

Working in Japan for 28 years, Christian came to location sound via a 16 year career as a producer. He honed his sound mixing skills over the past 9 years often working as a producer/sound mixer. As a producer for Local 81 with over 80 projects for TV (Top Gear, The Amazing Race), film, commercials (Nike, Apple), and sports, lately Christian LOVES JUST BEING A SOUND RECORDIST. I know the heartache of production where things are always in flux. To me, everything sounds good to this soundman.

Fully Bilingual. I can read and write Japanese as well. I’ve subtitled over 70 feature films and have been an on-set interpreter for many feature films mostly for Miike Takashi. IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1218835/

Equipped to handle multi-camera wireless. Offering a full LED light kit and 5 seater SUV Mitsubishi Pajero with big trunk, AC power and luggage rack for more gear.

When Christian is not recording sound, he works as a rock climbing guide and ski guide
