Jeremy Peirson

Supervising Sound Editor, Sound Designer & Re-Recording Mixer

Jeremy was always interested in music as a child and played drums in local bands throughout high school and college. Being the drummer, he was never happy with what he was hearing on stage. Eventually he started figuring out ways to create his own monitor system in order to hear better. This eventually led to an interest in live sound engineering and music recording. His college path first brought him to sound recording, but he soon realized that it was film mixing calling to him while sitting in a movie theater in Chicago.

Jeremy graduated in 1998 from Columbia College Chicago with a B.A. in Sound for Film & Sound Recording and he moved to Los Angeles, where he currently resides, to find work in film. He began as an intern at Danetracks Inc., a post-production sound company that was currently creating the soundtrack for the movie "The Matrix." He got to see the entire process of what it takes to complete the sound for a movie. From editing raw tracks to recording sound fx, creating new sounds, and the entire mixing process from start to finish, he learned as much as he could from the experience.

Since that time, he has worked on over 60 films as a Sound Editor, Sound Designer, Supervising Sound Editor, and/or Re-Recording Mixer. He was also an early pioneer of virtual mixing within Protools, something that is now becoming more of a standard. Never being content, he’s also been an early adopter of immersive sound mixing formats, pushing to do the last 3 Hunger Games movies as Native Virtual Dobly Atmos Mixes.
