Kate Davis to head up Azimuth's new audio department

LONDON - Kate Davis has joined Azimuth (www.azimuth.tv) as head of audio, having previously headed up a busy audio department at Directors Cut Films for more than 11 years. She brings a passion for sound and much experience in helping to bring films to life while working with creative talent. 

Davis joins the studio at a time of great expansion. Azimuth recently moved from its original Soho base to a new facility, and has embarked on a new chapter in its development of finishing high-end creative storytelling and factual entertainment. Part of this expansion is a repositioning of the business with the evolution of the creative team, alongside increased scale and complexity of the work the studio is producing. To expedite this, she will be tasked with setting up their brand new audio department.   

“Opportunities to build a new department with the latest audio tech don't come along very often, so I was thrilled to be asked to join Azimuth and their fabulous team to embark on this adventure with them,” Davis explains. “To be involved from so early on, and to have the chance to drive forward the future of audio post production in their state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos studios is something I'm really thrilled to be a key part of.”

As head of audio at Directors Cut Films in Fitzrovia, Davis mixed some of the UK's most popular factual entertainment and arts programs, including Travelman: 48 Hours in..., DNA Journey and Glastonbury: 50 Years and Counting. She was nominated for a BAFTA in 2019 for her work on the Classic Albums Amy Winehouse: Back to Black film, and was the recipient of the prestigious Women in Film and TV Creative Technology Award in 2021.
