Who we are

Founded in 1953, the MPSE is an organization dedicated to improving the recognition of its members by educating the public and the rest of the filmmaking community as to the artistic merit of sound editing. The efforts of our talented and hard-working members can be heard every hour of the day all over the world.

MPSE members are the artists who sculpt dramatic sound effects and invent new sounds for imaginary worlds. In addition to sound effects editors, members also include Foley editors who edit the specially created sound effects performed to the picture that are so frequently taken for granted as a natural part of the scene, including footsteps, key jingles, leather jacket squeaks and so on. Dialogue editors are the craftspeople who painstakingly smooth out the production sound recorded on location. ADR editors help to seamlessly weave the re-recorded dialogue that replaces problematic tracks. Music editors work with composers and music supervisors to spot cues and stitch together a sonic tapestry from the original score and prerecorded music from various sources.

Each year the MPSE presents "The Golden Reel Awards," in which we acknowledge the year's best work in the various areas of sound editing: Dialogue, ADR, Effects, Foley and Music. 


Members of the Motion Picture Sound Editors,

As I complete my term as president, I wish to thank the board and you, our members, for giving me the opportunity to serve. My goal as president has been to give back to a sound community that has blessed me with a rewarding career by promoting the importance of sound in entertainment media and by strengthening and expanding the MPSE.
