Staff. Expertise. Talent.
Jane Tattersall’s career in sound began during a rainstorm. A graduate of Queens University (philosophy), her first job in film was as a researcher/writer on a BBC/TVO documentary series. When the picture editor added the rumble of thunder to an otherwise merely beautiful landscape scene, it was love at first sound. Ask Jane about her success over 30 years and she attributes it to her luck of being mentored by some of the best sound editors and mixers in the business. Great filmmakers such as Jaco van Dormael, Robert Lantos, Bill Forsyth, Deepa Mehta, David Cronenberg, and Istvan Szabo contributed to her education. She built relationships with young Canadian filmmakers like Clement Virgo, Sarah Polley, Richie Mehta, Mike McGowan. Jane’s passion for sound excellence and hard work helped this next generation of filmmakers take the stage at the Oscars, at Cannes, in Toronto and at film festivals around the world. Jane’s work has taken her to studios beyond Canada, including stints in Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, London, LA, Skywalker, and New York. Numerous credits, nominations and awards followed and today Jane counts over 170 credits (film and television), and over 100 nominations and awards. In 2017 Jane’s editing includes “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Alias Grace” and “Cardinal.”
