Michael F. Bates is a supervising sound editor and sound designer specialising in post production sound for film.

I have worked on films that have been screened at the London Asian Film Festival, London Short Film Festival and other BAFTA qualifying film festivals, on films that have been shown at Picturehouse Cinemas nationwide, with Turner Prize winning artists and on installations that have been shown at the Venice Biennale.

I have been selected to be a part of the BFI NETWORK X BAFTA Crew programme for 2017, as one of the emerging ‘below-the-line’ talent.

I also record sound effects in the studio and in the field, some of which are available to buy at tonemanufacture.com and via other distributors including A Sound Effect, SonnissWildtrack Sound Library and Soundsnap.
