“I earnestly believe a story rarely finds its voice until the soundscape is fully realized. Working in such a subjective medium, exploring ways to create this soundscape has transformed me into an eternal pupil, and I come to work every day grateful for the opportunity to learn more about sound through the process of collaboration.” Hailing from the deep South, Penny discovered her calling for sound at Chapman University. She began her career as a dialogue/FX editor and Sound Supervisor and has earned two Emmy nominations along the way. Having experience as a Sound Supervisor also informs her approach to mixing, as it gives her familiarity with the conversations that happen before the mix, a knack for seamless aural transitions, and a deep-seated belief that all decisions must serve the story.
