meet the team

Jake Roberts

After sound engineering for music, Jake followed his passion for sound design and went to study at the National Film and Television School where he met Barnaby Templer. Their mutual understanding of sound narrative led them to form Fonic in 2004.

Barnaby Templer

Barnaby began work in the film industry travelling the world as a location recordist. Whilst running Fonic with Jake, he has enjoyed his fellowship at NUA, being on the judging panel for festivals and working as a visiting lecturer. He loves fossil hunting, fishing and his family (but not in that order.)

JM Finch

JM first met Jake working in the sound department on Batman Begins, and soon after joined the Fonic team. Having now worked alongside Jake and Barnaby since 2005, JM has become an essential part of the Fonic team, managing projects and leading the team through the process.

Marty O'Brien

Since joining Fonic as a runner at the beginning of 2008, Marty has used his passion and skills in audio post production to progress into a crucial member of the team, working within every discipline of sound.

Chris Swaine

Chris hails all the way from Toronto and joined Fonic back in 2009 as a studio assistant. Since then he has become an invaluable team player and enjoys a challenge.
