I am responsible for all things related to sound during Los Angeles filming, from capture of dialogue to distribution of that sound to on-set monitors and then on to editorial.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
The sheer magnitude of this project. We had to invent new and innovative ways to look at sound capture and reproduction, which was made especially demanding when we had to do it in a giant water tank.
What is something surprising about your job that most people might not know?
People may assume my role is entirely technical, but it's often so much more than that. It is hugely creative and involves interacting and working with lots of different people from cast and crew to editorial.
What do you remember most from seeing Avatar: The Way of Water in theaters?
The excitement at seeing my credit was one of them, but mainly it was the immersive feeling of being right there on Pandora, the incredible visuals linked with the amazing soundscape was breathtaking.
What was the most exciting part of working on Avatar: The Way of Water?
Working in the water tank and watching our cast perform, all the while trying to hold my breath as long as they were underwater. I never quite succeeded, which in turn made me be in awe of them that little bit more.
