Lucy is a writer for renowned audio industry website Protools Expert, has both chaired and been part of panel discussions at BVE and The Media Production Show, and is a guest lecturer and workshop leader at multiple Universities and 6th Form Colleges.
Lucy started her career at Envy Post Production as a Runner in 2009 after graduating University with a Classical Music and Musicology degree. Whilst at Envy she was named one of the Top 30 Under 30 in Broadcast Magazine’s Broadcast Hotshot feature in 2013 and went freelance in 2015, where she has worked for multiple post-houses, film production companies and independent directors.
She has recently built a sound studio in her garden to house her new business LJ Studios that is a one-stop-shop for all Audio Post Production, including the added services of voice-over and foley recording, and music supervision & composition. She aims to work with the best freelancers around, and would love to use as many female engineers and artists as possible. She already has 8 freelancers officially onboard, 6 of whom are women. She will also be offering work experience and training opportunities at the studio, with an aim in encouraging young girls and women to join the industry. The studio will also be baby and child friendly, so that her clients do not have the worry of needing to sort childcare to come to a dub review.
