LipSync Post has appointed re-recording mixer Sven Taits to its sound team.

Taits spent seven years at De Lane Lea before going freelance in 2008.

His credits include The Wipers Times and White Girl, both for the BBC, and films such as The Constant Gardener and Layer Cake.

LipSync Group managing director Peter Hampden said: “Sven’s diverse experience and outstanding audio skills make him an ideal addition to our talented sound team.”

Taits joins the Bafta Craft award-winning sound team on 12 May when he will start work on The Dead Lands, a period action epic about murder and vengeance in a Maori tribe.
