Amanda Beggs is an award winning sound mixer who’s breaking stereotypes as a women in cinema audio and a woman in STEM / STEAM! She’s worked in the sound department on Star Trek, Star Wars, Star Tours at Disneyland and WDW. Amanda’s sound department credits include Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek Beyond & Into Darkness, Grey’s Anatomy and a ton of other projects. On top of that, she was just #Emmynominated!
We caught up with Amanda Beggs at the Cinema Audio Society Awards (CAS Awards) just last year. Amanda discusses the autonomy and creative aspects that come together to keep this Trekkie pushing the envelope (no sound-pun intended) and on top of her game. Her passion, hard work and skill clearly make her an aspirational woman who excels way back behind the lens as an Emmy nominated and award winning sound mixer!
Lastly, as a graduate from The Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, Amanda is yet another reminder that you don’t have to go to film school in Los Angeles to be successful in the entertainment industry!
Thank you so much for watching, guyz!
