About Me

  
Introduction

Hi there and welcome to my website. As you can see by the big bold letters my name is Al Seconi and I am a location sound recordist, otherwise known as a production sound mixer, for documentaries,
TV commercials, TV dramas and feature films, as well as national and international corporate videos (see CV & REFERENCES  for further detail).


My Location

I am based out of Auckland, New Zealand and have travelled and worked throughout New Zealand, Australia, America, Malaysia, Thailand and most of the major South Pacific Islands, such as Samoa, Fiji, Rarotonga, and the Tahitian islands.
 

The Industy

I have worked in the film and television industry for 23 years and I can honestly say that I still go to work every day with a smile on my face! Every day to me is challenging and interesting in one way or another. Over the years my work has been varied and can be very different from one day to the next. One week I may be working on a low budget 3 man TVC and the next week I could be working on a big budget feature film. So it is important for me to be very flexible in the way I work and with the equipment I choose to use to capture the best sound possible for every individual production.


My Equipment

I own an extensive amount of high quality equipment as you will see by my  Equipment List . I have a full feature film package, a full documentary package, I own and have available to me playback equipment suitable for small to large size venues. I also own and have available to me live band mixing and recording equipment suitable for the average size bands.
 

Are you coming to Shoot in New Zealand?

If you are coming to New Zealand to shoot and you need help with finding a crew and equipment such as cameramen and camera/lighting packages, or even locations, I can help you with organising all this before you even arrive in the country. After working in the New Zealand film industry for so long I have built up a number of contacts and know a lot of talented and highly skilled people that would more than meet your expectations. For example, I organised camera and crew for shooting the IVECO All Black Rugby series 2007 and 2008 between Ireland, Italy and the All Blacks of New Zealand.


People

But it is people that have always been important to me and I see as a very important part of my job, whether it is the people on the production team, the people we are making the documentaries about or the presenters and actors in front of the camera. It is important to me that people feel comfortable and relaxed around me and confident in my experience and ability to do the best job possible.

So please feel free to look around my website, the more you look the more you will get to know me, not only for what I do or have done as a sound recordist/mixer, but also as an enthusiastic person with many interests.
