I was a sound editor on The Big Lebowski, The Wire, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Boys Don't Cry, Generation Kill, Treme, and dozens more. AMA!
Hiya. My name is Jen Ralston and I am a professional sound editor. I have worked on about sixty features, a handful of series, a miniseries and a few video games in my 19-year career. I joined reddit a few months back and wandered into /r/TheWire/ where I started a new thread. I didn't even know what an AMA was at the time, but response was overwhelming! I promised to return and do a proper AMA to answer the questions that were straying off-topic from The Wire so here I am!
In addition to all the projects I've worked on as a sound editor, I also co-wrote an episode of Treme (Ep 305, "I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say").
I'm also trying to get a web series that I wrote and will direct funded over at Indiegogo right now and would not be adverse to you checking it out. :)
EDIT: I need to get up early for work but I'll keep checking back and answering new questions, if there are any. Thanks!
EDIT TWO: Still answering questions but today will be the last day I'll have time to check in...
EDIT THREE: Thanks, reddit!
