Doug Kent

Vice President and Head of Broadcast Sound and Localization, US

This is a big and rewarding job that sees me leading a team of 60 creative and administrative people making the world safe for comedy and drama. On a day-to-day basis, my team oversees sound editors, re-recording mixers, Foley artists, schedulers and project managers for about 30 episodic projects at any one time.

I love a lot about my job. I enjoy the creative talent, the clients, the rush of weekly deadlines but most of all I enjoy being in the midst of the creative process. Technicolor is a place where creativity and technology meet. I really enjoy being at the intersection.

Technicolor has best-in-class horsepower and clout. That combination of resources has built the finest post-production sound facility on the planet and afforded me the opportunity to give my clients great creative talent and technical solutions.
