Our friends at Jigsaw24 recently finished setting up Dom Gibbs with a new Avid Pro Tools | S3. After which they hung around and tried to wrangle a few free tips from one of the busiest and most successful sound supervisors around…
Over the past twenty years, Dominic Gibbs has supervised the sound on a multitude of Hollywood movie blockbusters including Edge of Tomorrow, Legend, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Wrath of the Titans.
Jigsaw24 Please can you tell us a little about your work and what your company does?
Dom Gibbs We provide sound supervision and editorial services to the feature film industry. This has included work on a large variety of both independent and studio pictures.
Along with my team of experienced editors, we supply sound effects, design, backgrounds, foley, dialogue and ADR to help build a dynamic and unique soundtrack to each project we undertake.
Jigsaw24 What does the role of sound supervisor involve?
Dom Gibbs I manage and supervise the creation of the film’s soundtrack. I begin by meeting with the creative minds behind the movie to discuss any ideas they might have for the soundtrack, and to try and build a concept for how they would like the movie to sound when it’s finished.
Throughout the editorial process, I work closely with the director and picture editor to ensure that my team are working towards the same collective goal. I will also spend time designing sounds for the film, and working with each department within the sound team.
