Premier Recording Studio & Media Studio in Newcastle

MAREE LOWES
OWNER + Co-director

Maree's acting work can be seen in 128 countries worldwide and is an experienced Voice Over Artist. However, this is just the start of her love affair with storytelling. Acting and voice over aside, Maree works as a freelance creative in film and TV - namely as a 1st Assistant Director and Stylist. She has contributed to content seen internationally and nationally. 

Combining her B.A Double Major in Psychology and Indigenous Studies with her passion for narrative, Maree sees media and music as a mechanism for shaping culture, fostering empathy and affecting social and environmental change. 

Her past and present CV include working as:
- An Online Community Manager within an International Digital Emmy© Award winning team,
- A Music Video Stylist (Filthy Look Films, Universal Music, freelance)
- A Content Producer (dirtgirlworld / Get Grubby TV)
- A 1st Assistant Director (Sesame Street, Thundamentals, Infinity Squared, Modular Productions),
- A freelance branding & advertising copywriter (Bounce Energy Balls, PRD Nationwide, dirtgirlworld etc)
- A session musician
And in administration at a psychology practice, which included providing crisis counselling over the telephone. 

Maree is bilingual, speaking Spanish (once fluent to the point of dreaming in Spanish, now "a little more rusty"). She has lived in Spain and traveled throughout South America, Europe, Asia and her home country, Australia. 

CLINT TOPIC
owner, Co-director
+ AUDIO Engineer

As an experienced audio engineer, Clint has worked with musicians across an eclectic range of genres. His portfolio includes Aussie hip-hop to gypsy klezmer, RnB to traditional pop, acoustic Indie through to funk.

Contracted regularly for recording, mixing and mastering sound for TV, radio, short and feature length film and corporate projects,  he is also particularly experienced in recording voice over. Like Maree, Clint's past projects have been distributed nationally and internationally. Clint has contributed to content for National Geographic, SBS, dirtgirlworld and the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games

Clint completed the Sound Mixing and Mastering on 'Balkan Roots', a multi-award winning feature length documentary.

Another project he recently worked on as Dialogue Engineer has just clocked its 7th film festival selection after taking out 'Audience Choice' and 'Best Sound' at Freshflix, 2017. 

Clint is as passionate about sound and music as they come. Well established and connected in the Newcastle & Sydney music community, Clint has worked as a musician for 10 years.

We were ecstatic to find audio professionals of Clint & Sawtooth’s calibre when starting post production of our feature music documentary Balkan Roots (balkanroots.com). Clint mixed and mastered our highly musical soundtrack, helping to create a knockout audio-visual finish for our film. He brought enthusiasm, expertise and total commitment to the project, and was instrumental to Balkan Roots’ successful festival run and multiple best doc awards.
