Tell us a bit about your role and how you became a part of the team at Twig.
I’m the Sound Manager/Senior Dubbing Mixer. I spend most of my workdays editing, designing, and mixing the soundtracks to our films. Every bleep, whoosh, explosion, squelch, rumble, ding, snort, etc needs to be considered and added to the soundtrack, which is then balanced alongside the voice-over and music to create a cohesive (and hopefully engaging) soundtrack. There are just two of us in the sound department, Emily and myself. We take care of all the audio work here at Twig, which also includes recording voice-overs, editing and mixing podcasts, and providing sound for the interactives. There is a lot to do but it’s something we love and it can be a lot of fun. I joined Twig as a Dubbing Mixer 7 years ago! I previously worked as a freelance Sound Mixer in TV, film & digital media.
