Hello, my name is Charlie Diggle.  I am writing to apply for your position of Associate Technical Sound Designer.  Having read your company's aim and the perks you offer; it is abundantly clear that Great Ape Games cares about their employees.  The way your company is run seems to align strongly with my values and I would cherish the opportunity to work with you. 

Since completing my Ba(Hons) Sound Production Degree at the University of Winchester, I have been working as an audio freelancer for the past 5 years as a sound designer, composer, audio engineer, and Foley artist for various projects with the long-term desire to transition into working in the games industry.  Finding an entry-level position in this field and getting onto the ladder has however proved challenging.  I have much to learn yet in the world of game audio, but I have many transferable skills from the film industry.   This role you are offering at Great Ape Games is the perfect career opportunity and I feel I can be a valuable asset to your team.  

Skills I can offer:

Proficient audio editing skills in a DAW such as Pro Tools or Reaper/ Strong understanding of audio principles, especially non-linear sound design
I currently work with and have extensive knowledge using Logic Pro X.  I also have some experience using Pro Tools and Studio One and I am a fast learner when transitioning to a new DAW.  I have vast experience and expertise in audio manipulation and mixing.  My
work has allowed me to develop a keen ear for quality.  During my studies I also spent an entire module on sound design where I learned practices which I continue to carry into my work today.

Experience working on a number of creative projects and being in charge of all sound remotely/Editing of speech and other audio assets
I have worked in the film industry for the past 5 years and have been the HOD of sound on two short films as well as the sole sound designer for two others: working remotely from my professional home studio. I have also worked on several short films as a dialogue editor and created audio assets from Foley recordings.


Work with the audio team and the creative director to deliver an audio experience that meets the creative vision.
I have worked as part of several audio teams and delivered audio whilst working to tight deadlines (I do however appreciate your aversion to crunch).  I understand the best creative output often comes from collaboration and how important it is for a tight-knit team to rely on each other to function most effectively.

Thank you very much for spending the time to review my application.  I am based in Dorset, meaning I would be applying for a remote position, however, I am not too far away that I could not come into your offices occasionally if this was necessary.  I would love the opportunity to come up and meet your team in person and see your base of operations if my application is successful.  Once again, I would like to state how much I admire your company's work ethic, every bullet point I have read on your website is wonderfully refreshing!

Finally, would you please also consider this both an application for Associate Technical Sound Designer role and as a speculative application if you believe I could be a good fit to your tribe anywhere else?

Thanks again for your consideration and I wish you luck with your latest release.
