Team

Gareth Allen, Managing Director

Gareth can’t believe his luck. He’s had an amazing career, spanning a quarter of a century, as a radio and television news journalist, producer and director for both the BBC and ITV. He knows how to tell a great story and has won prestigious awards for doing what he loves. Video production in his DNA. He established Soundview in 2009 and goes by the “Three P’s” mantra: people,  pictures and production.

Chris Dewar, Director of Post Production

With twenty years working in post production, daylight has sometimes felt like a luxury. But these days Chris is just at home wearing factor 30, on location shooting VR video. Chris is our in-house VR specialist and add to that he knows everything we need about post production. Oh and did we tell you he’s an award winning craft editor? Simply put, Chris knows how to make our films look and sound amazing.

Lizzy Allen, Director of Productions

Part of the Plymouth video production team from its conception, Lizzy has worked at the beating heart of Soundview from day one. From idea to delivery she’s on hand to provide support and guidance to make sure everything we do is top notch. Whether research or production, Lizzy’s foresight and vision is a valuable asset to our Soundview team. She loves to meet clients, help out on a shoot, and sometimes even gets out of the office!

Jim Baldwin, Video Producer

Jim is a great all rounder with years of experience in production and a great eye for camera work. He can often be found out on location behind the camera, capturing the best of the action. If not on a shoot then he’s in the Soundview office busy editing our films. As if that’s not a wide enough skills set, he’s also a mean photographer and provides Soundview with much of their stills library.

Rosie has a passion for video and is always writing, producing, or editing something. When she’s not creating content for Soundview or working on personal projects, Rosie studies Media Arts at Plymouth University.

Finley Allen, Production Junior

Finley is our social media Guru and he’s never far from his phone busily posting the latest news from Soundview. Finley also helps out with production and writes a mean blog. When not keeping you up to date with the coolest projects from the Soundview stable, he studies Media at Plymouth College of Art.
