Letter from the President

Members of the Motion Picture Sound Editors,

Thank you to the members for re-electing me, I do not take the trust you have bestowed in me lightly. I am determined to keep the MPSE thriving even through this pandemic.

We are planning many Sound Advice and other events for you to attend both remotely as well as in-person. The MPSE picnic is coming back, and this year’s Golden Reel Awards will be in-person as well!

This is our big 70th annual awards and we will go big. Please make sure you attend because we have a lot of memorable things planned.

We are still pushing for diversity on our board of directors, especially if you are a game audio person or a music editor and have been a member for two years, please contact us about running for a board of directors’ spot. If you want to judge on a blue-ribbon panel for our awards, please contact us. If you want to be more involved with MPSE but aren’t sure how, please contact us. We would love to have you.

We are always looking for the best and brightest editors to join our ranks. It amazes me when someone has been nominated several times or received a Golden Reel Award for a project but has not joined the organization. If you respect the organization enough to enter your project for an award, then you should become a member and have a voice in the MPSE. Go to our membership tab on the web page and fill out an application now. There are a lot of perks of membership including being able to put the coveted MPSE initials after your name in the credits like most of the world’s best editors do.

A big thank you to Tracie in our office and all our officers and board members for taking the time to run this organization and bring a lot of value to your membership. Hope to see you in person soon.
