Colin’s first job in the industry was as runner for Alexander Korda's new animation company, and after three years with Korda he got a job at Anglo Scottish, a company based at Shepperton Studios, where he later received a phone call from Sound Designer Don Deacon saying that he was about to start a film and was looking for an assistant and asked if Colin was interested.
The rest, as they say, is history and set Colin on a career path of more than 80 films working with such luminaries as Otto Preminger, Richard Burton, Nastassja Kinski, Richard Attenborough, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Jamie Lee Curtis, David Bowie, Peter Sellers, Michael Caine, Roger Moore, Sidney Poitier, Terry Gilliam, Kenneth Branagh … and films including Curse of the Fly, The Quiller Memorandum, four Carry On films - Up the Khyber, Again Doctor, Camping and Up the Jungle; 10 Rillington Place, Soft Beds, Hard Battles,The Man Who Fell to Earth, six James Bond films - The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, and The Living Daylights; Nineteen Eighty-Four, Supergirl, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Remains of the Day, Emma, Fierce Creatures, Pushing Tin and Ned Kelly.
Offering an insight into the world of sound design and with wonderful anecdotes about the people he’s worked with, Colin is a very interesting and entertaining lunch guest!
