Biography OF ANDE Schurr

Andrew Schurr (or Ande) has worked for 15 years in the film industry recording location sound on many feature films, reality TV shows and international documentaries. He is based in Singapore.

Recent Highlights include sound recording for the Hollywood film 'Monkey Man' starring and directed by Dev Patel (produced by Bron Studios, LA). Due out in 2022.

He was the sound recordist for Empire Magazine's film of the year 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' directed by Taika Waititi (produced by Piki Films and Defender Films) and the Animal Planet series 'Vet Gone Wild' (Core Media Group, LA) which included climbing up a waterfall on the Vietnam/Laos boarder at night to quietly release rehabilitated pangolin away from poachers - among other wild adventures!

Not your typical sound man, Ande is trained in scuba diving, sky-diving, anti-poaching, anti-hijacking, first aid, abseiling, weapons safety, defensive driving and basic equestrian - skills that help him adapt and thrive to the needs of each production regardless of terrain.

Ande was inspired to learn Sound Recording from BBC-trained sound man Mike Westgate, a veteran of many films and over 12 ocean expeditions for The Cousteau Society.

In this ever changing world, you need a sound man who can adapt and act quickly. Ande has your production's location sound needs covered.
