Cassandra Rutledge is a London based Sound Recordist.
Focused on recording sound for film on location and enjoying the challenge of balancing the demands of a busy shoot schedule against the backdrop of often difficult locations while always finding a way to get great sound. 2017 was a fantastic year for Cassandra as her sound recording credits included her first mainstream broadcast in ITV2’s The Great Xmas Rant, BBC Three Series 2 of Climaxed and a wonderful working trip through Japan with Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) for a Factual/Food pilot. Cassandra also had the great pleasure of supporting legendary Production Sound Mixer Tony Dawe and his team as Sound Assistant on Tim Burton’s Dumbo as well as rounding out the year in conversation with her mentor Ray Beckett (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit, I Daniel Blake and more).
Cassandra brings a wealth of organised and focused energy as well as her respect and admiration for artists from her own experiences as a creator and performer.
