Ben Carr is simply the best sound designer I have ever worked with. As if being professional, patient, punctual and hugely creative wasn’t enough, he’s also just a very nice person. I cannot wait to collaborate with Ben again on a project deserving of his high level of expertise and ingenuity.Harry Partridge, Director of Trilby Dogtooth Vs. The Snapperchap
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ben. Creating an entire soundscape from scratch for an animated fantasy world was a big ask, but Ben rose to the challenge with skill, dedication, and good humour. He was incredibly patient and kind throughout the process of sound design and mixing, and I always felt listened to. I look forward to working with Ben again.Astrid Goldsmith, Director of Red Rover
I want to say how impressed we were with Ben’s work, the guy is nothing less than a consummate professional who pretty much outworked both Luis and myself for two days straight, which is not easy to do! He has a keen sense for detail and was extremely accommodating to our requests.Brian Rose, London Real
I have worked with Ben Carr at Intricate Sound on both narrative features and documentary features and his work is fantastic. As an independent Producer I am always seeking the highest quality work suitable for global delivery of content and Ben provides exactly this. He is creative, resourceful, professional, equable and has an encyclopaedic technical knowledge of not just audio post but all aspects of post production. Intricate Sound is always my first choice for sound post production and offers fabulous value and top-notch results.Hank Starrs, Producer
We engaged Ben Carr of Intricate Sound to perform post-production sound design on our retrospective documentary CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters, and we are so thankful we did.
The doc had a few problematic interviews that really needed detailed corrective work in order for us to deliver to the international market; Ben really performed a miracle with them.
Ben has been a dream to work with. He has the innate ability to listen and take direction. He pays meticulous attention to detail as he applies his craft, exceeding all expectations.
He is an expert in his field and a true collaborator. Ben cares, he will relentlessly work in order to meet deadlines and deliver; and he does!
In the film industry it’s essential to work with someone who has the right people skills, who you can trust and put your faith in. In every way we trust and have complete faith in Ben, we love working with him.
Ben Carr is the consummate professional, whose qualities are unique. He definitely has become a part of our team and we can’t wait to work with him again on our next project.Claire Bueno, Producer
We approached Ben Carr and Intricate Sound with a feature documentary film that we had just presented as a rough cut at the Sheffield Film Festival.Carlotta Berti, Director & Producer
We had a number of technical issues to solve and a lot of creative work to do with sound. We also needed to mix the soundtrack, composed by grammy-nominated composers based in LA.
Ben simply took our project as his own, and took care of every technical and creative aspect of sound postproduction, with utmost care and dedication.
Ben is an outstanding and talented collaborator who relentlessly and patiently strives to achieve excellence on every level. Technical knowledge, people’s skills, and timely results are just the side dish.
Ben not only is a wizard at fixing impossible problems; he is also a fellow artist and filmmaker who has the wit, creativity, experience, empathy, and intelligence to quickly understand the direction in which the film is going, contribute to the cinematic process, and take the sound of the film to a new creative dimension.
In the case of our film, doing sound postproduction with Ben meant that the film has a new narrative dimension. The sounds of concrete munchers approaching the next block of the Aylesbury Estate, which Ben crafted for us, create a whole new emotional tension. This allows the public to imagine what is beyond the frame, to catch the invisible.
This is THE dream of any filmmaker, and to achieve it in a film is simply invaluable.
Ben is exceptionally talented and is evidently highly experienced in delivering beyond the brief, even when under pressure. Ben has a calming attitude both on set and in the studio, working collaboratively to strengthen the wider crew, whilst building strong relationships with clients. Ben has the passion to do excellent work on every single brief and his artistic edge always impresses.Amelie Exton, Producer
