17 November 2016
PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL
Jo Jackson is a speaker at The Sound of Story 2016: three days of talks, screenings, masterclasses and workshops.
Hailing from Nottingham, Jo began her sound career working in recording studios and DJing around the city before heading south to complete her degree in Music Technology at the London College of Music.
Soon realising her love of working with film, Jo got a job as a runner at Halo Post which led to a permanent role working as a Mix Technician at Halo’s Dolby Premiere dubbing stage. During this time, Jo worked on a fantastic run of features including About Time, 71, Suffragette, Shaun the Sheep Movie, Paddington and The Stone Roses: Made of Stone_, and gained even more credits working on short films doing both sound editing/design and mixing. Jo was also responsible for recording ADR for numerous film and television projects (_The Missing, Flat TV).
After four years at Halo, Jo decided to take the plunge into freelancing earlier this year. She now works as a freelance Sound Editor, ADR Mixer and Re-Recording Mixer.
Jo is a guest speaker at The Sound of Story: Women in Sound (17 November).
