Ric Creaser

Broadcast Sound Engineer, Audio Guru

With a resume that includes such iconic and successful television programs as Willessee at 7, Beyond 2000, Water Rats, The Great Outdoors, 60 Minutes, The 7:30 Report and Top Gear Australia, Ric Creaser is truly one of the country's most succesful and respected broadcast audio engineers.

Ric has spent over 25 years specialising in documentary and reality style recording that requires a "run & gun" approach, without the luxury of second takes or a large sound team.

His audio talents don't stop there however; Ric is also a microphone inventor, having designed the innovative RØDE PinMic microphone, now used in professional film and television production.

At the 2012 DSLR Workshop Tour Ric will be complementing Philip with a dedicated 90 minute audio curriculum, guiding the audience through the basics of audio, different approaches to recording sound, and practical demonstrations of common audio scenarios from pre to post production.
