Tone Manufacture is a sound effects library and post production sound company run by supervising sound editor Michael F. Bates.

We aim to provide useful, high quality sound effect libraries to fulfil the needs of sound editors, sound designers and composers.

With our post production sound services we are dedicated to making the final stages of your project an inspiring and collaborative environment to maximise the creative potential of your budget and soundtrack.

We have worked on films that have been screened at the London Asian Film Festival, London Short Film Festival and other BAFTA qualifying film festivals, on films that have been shown at Picturehouse Cinemas nationwide, with Turner Prize winning artists and on installations that have been shown at the Venice Biennale.

Michael has also been selected to be a part of the BFI NETWORK X BAFTA Crew programme for 2017, as one of the emerging ‘below-the-line’ talent.
