“As a director, animator and producer based in central Australia I have had the pleasure of working with Left of Elephant Sound across a variety of animation and documentary projects. Working in the roles of sound designer, location sound recordist and music producer I have always found Jeremy to be professional, hard working, creative, technically knowledgeable and well versed in the cultural and climatic complexities of working in the Northern Territory.” – Johnathon Daw

I tracked an EP and recorded a live performance with Jeremy at Left of Elephant Sound Studios, Alice Springs, in 2020. Jeremy was friendly, respectful and professional. He created a comfortable atmosphere in which to record and provided a quality service at a fair price. He has also been a supportive and encouraging collaborator. Recommended by me!” – Connor Harrington
