Partnering with the best in live broadcast, documentaries,
online and major productions.
I have worked with Wayne for over 20 years, I think one of his greatest strengths is ability to read any situation. His depth of understanding of the human spirit allows him to capture truly poignant moments that transport stories beyond the visual narrative.
For over 3 years, I have sought Wayne McKelvie’s services as a freelance Sound Engineer on the Sunrise Weather segments. I have had the pleasure of traveling Australia and the world working with Wayne and delivering groundbreaking Television. I regularly engage Wayne because of his professionalism, wealth of experience and his ability to execute every challenge that comes his way with calmness and enthusiasm. My team is stronger with Wayne on board because of his initiative, rapid troubleshooting and dynamic personality. As a result, every project involving Wayne is a more polished one.
I worked with Wayne McKelvie/Sound Ideas Production on multiple broadcast shoots in Western Australia in my capacity as PR Manager and can confidently recommend him as the best in the biz! Some days the travel and production schedule would see us working all hours of the day and night - but Wayne’s professional manner and calm approach under pressure, made him a dream to work with. My mind was always at ease when I knew Wayne was working on a job for Tourism WA as I knew the sound would be delivered to perfection.
I have worked with Wayne McKelvie for more than a decade and would have no hesitation in recommending him for any role. Wayne is reliable, professional and his work is always top notch. He is also a top bloke. His friendly demeanour and country charm make him a valued team member and producer, instantly putting talent at ease. Wayne is multi-skilled and always willing to learn. He has produced many documentary level drone shots that have lifted my stories from the mundane to the magical. He comes highly recommended.
I’ve worked with Wayne for a few years now & he’s so much more than a sound engineer. Of course, the sound is always spot on whether we’re underwater diving with Sharks or singing a duet on top of the Sydney harbour bridge with Nikki Webster. But he’s also a true team player willing to take on extra roles just to ensure we produce the best product possible. Wayne is a super reliable guy who everyone gets along with, unless of course you’re his arch nemesis, the annoyingly loud street sweeper!
Sound is an integral part of any major live breakfast TV event as these live broadcasts are often complicated and forever changing. Whatever challenges we throw at Wayne, and there are many, he always delivers. It’s no surprise he has become our go-to guy for OBs.
