Conor MacEvilly, Studio Manager

From the age of 12 Conor knew he wanted to work with sound. He got his first job as a roadie, and soon progressed to engineering live sound and touring with various well-known Irish bands. With the growth in popularity in CD-Rom in the mid-90s Conor moved into producing voices for children's video games in dozens of languages. Through this work he built an in-depth expertise with multi-lingual digital audio and video.

In 2001 Conor was approached by localization company Transware to work on their audio projects. At Transware, Conor managed a team of sound engineers and five studios, as well as providing training and support to the company’s audio and video post production teams. In 2008 Conor joined forces with Hugh Barford to help form and build HBV Studios. Conor has overall responsibility for the quality and delivery of all audio-video content.
