Paul Le Couteur
Head Sound Designer
Nylon Studios

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA // Paul began his journey as a despatch boy at advertising agency, George Patterson in George St, Sydney, Australia in 1982. Working his way through despatch, media and the projection room (when TV commercials were shot, cut and finished on film), he found himself in the Audio Dept.

Falling in love with sound, he fell in love a few years later with a Melbourne girl and moved to Melbourne where he has remained ever since honing his craft with every job.

From Flint Webster to Flagstaff Studios and now the fresh new Nylon Studios Melbourne office, Paul has accrued numerous national awards from MADC, Award and Siren, to international awards in Singapore, Hong Kong, London, New York, Hollywood and Cannes.

He is the first sound engineer to win the Silver Siren for best craft in Australian radio, 3 years running.
