David Yapp


David joined Films in 1998, initially as a Foley artist.  Since 2000, he has combined his Foley skills with tracklay – which gives him great flexibility and creativity in his sound design.  He has a strong musical background, including a music degree, which has proven especially beneficial when collaborating with composers.    David has been the Dubbing Editor for many Natural Worlds including Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant, Cuckoos, Moose in the Glen, Machil’s Story Elsa and Jungle Gremllins of Java.  He has been part of the drama teams on Teachers, Mistresses, Public Enemies and Life in Squares and was lead Dubbing Editor/Foley Artist on children’s animations Driver Dan’s Story Train and The Numtums

David was the Dubbing Editor for the Jackson Hole 2009 award-winning programme Charles Darwin’s The Tree of Life, and for Amber the Russian Tigre, winner of the Sound Design Award at Missoula in 2009, as well as the Wildscreen-nominated Tiger Dynasty for Grey Films.

He was the Dubbing Editor for the award-winning BBC documentary series Protecting Our Children and Bill Bailey’s Jungle Adventure.
