Neil Hillman MPSE

Neil Hillman at IMDb
Joint Managing Director | Sound Designer, Re-recording Mixer, Sound Supervisor


For more than 30 years, people all over the world have been listening to Neil Hillman, or more precisely, the sound that he produces for television, film and radio. Right now, thanks to syndication and the amazing number of territories that the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery channels reach, somewhere in the world someone is probably listening to sound recorded, edited, designed or mixed by Neil, a member of the prestigious US Motion Picture Sound Editors.

As Founder of The Audio Suite, from 2001 Neil quietly steered the company to achieving preferred supplier status with All3Media - the UK's largest Production Group - and recognised supplier status to the terrestrial broadcasters BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, as well as the digital channels of BBC3 & BBC4, ITV4, National Geographic and Discovery.

After a successful re-structuring of how the business serves divergent sector clients in 2012, Neil became joint Managing Director and now leads The Audio Suite's bespoke Sound Design Practice and Consultancy arm; with DreamWorks and Disney TV Animation as prestigious names on an impressive client roster.

Working under The Audio Suite's banner, Neil has location recorded, sound designed and mixed award-winning feature films; delivered - literally - hundreds of hours of prime-time broadcast audio; and serviced many TV and radio commercials.

Neil brings a passion for quality and value to every project he manages and guides; and this has been brought to bear on delivering unprecedented clarity of sound to Corporate and not-for-broadcast Video, B2B communications and podcasts for business.

In 2010, Neil was recognised by The Royal Television Society when he was bestowed with their 'Best Production Craft Skills' Award. He was also a New York Film Festival Medal Winner in 2008 and 2009 and a Finalist Award Winner in 2013.

Alongside his consultancy work for The Audio Suite, Neil is also is a member of the Theatre, Film and Television Sound Design research team at the University of York, lead by Dr. Sandra Pauletto. His own research is looking at Emotion in Sound Design.

A published Author, his latest book 'Journeyman' was published in October 2013 and Neil is happy to receive enquiries for Visiting Lecturer or speaking engagements from interested parties and University departments.
