PB Instructor Paul Ressel Commissioned for Project w/ Christian Bale (The Dark Knight)

At Point Blank we’re proud to create a unique learning experience through the quality and experience of our instructors, all of whom are active and highly successful within the music industry outside of their time spent instructing at PB. As a prime example of this, our Sound Design instructor Paul Ressel has just completed a commission with Academy Award winning actor Christian Bale for a project by Amnesty International.

Paul is one of many of Point Blank’s instructors who are fully established, successful musicians in the industry. Recently, Sound Engineering instructor Ganesh Singaram was granted an Exceptional Talent Visa for his work with the likes of Trey Songz and Pharrell, whilst instructor Doug McAvoy is an active producer in the drum and bass world as one half of the duo Battery, releasing an EP on Goldie’s renowned Metalheadz label.
