Production Sound Mixer Amanda Beggs Lives Her Dream After Investing in Sound Devices

Sound & Picture: Amanda Beggs, CAS, found she had a knack for capturing audio after taking a sound class at Georgia’s Savannah College of Art & Design. It was there that she fell in love with a dream—a career in audio—which began when asked if she could mix on a fellow student’s short film a mere two days before production was set to begin.

“I one-hundred-percent lied,” she admits with a laugh. “I said it was going to be no problem. I downloaded every manual…. Basically faked it until I made it. I did this whole short film with literally zero prior experience at being a production sound mixer.”
