Mr. Sylvester’s has worked on more than 95 films.He began his film career in 1990 as a sound assistant for the post production sound house SoundBusters. At that time, SoundBusters were fresh off their Oscar®™-winning soundscape for “Dances With Wolves.” As he gained more experience and developed greater sound editorial skills, his roles changed from assistant editor to dialogue editor, sound effects editor, foley editor and then Supervising Foley Editor and ADR Supervisor. Some of the films Don worked on during this time were nominated for the Motion Picture Sound Editor’s Guild’sGolden Reel Award: “Master And Commander” (2008), “X-2” (2003), “The Emperor’s New Groove” (2000) and “U-571” (2000), which also won the Oscar®™that year for Best Sound. Having supervised Foley or ADR on a number of films, Don’s responsibility expanded to include supervising all the sound for a motion picture (Supervising Sound Editor). His first credit in this role was the film “Doctor Dolittle 2” (2001). He has since supervised 19 films. As the Supervising Sound Editor, he has been nominated for the MPSE’s Golden Reel Award on two occasions: “Antwone Fisher” (2002) and “3:10 To Yuma” (2007). He won his first British Academy Award (BAFTA®™) for Best Sound in 2006 for “Walk The Line.” Don’s most recent project is “The Fault In Our Stars”, to be release this June by Twentieth Century Fox. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com or follow us on Twitter @123Film
