Ryan Rubin Music Editor
About
A Los Angeles native, Ryan grew up with quite a few children of production and post professionals. He began playing the piano early in grade school, and moved on to guitar and bass in high school. During college, Ryan began taking steps toward a business degree, but it was a music production elective that shifted his focus back to his passion for music. Ryan then attended the Ex'Pression Center for New Media, a trade school in the Bay Area that focuses on studio and live sound engineering. After graduating, he worked as a live sound engineer in the Bay Area for a few years before moving back to Los Angeles to be close to his family. Ryan began working at music editorial company Modern Music, first in their music library, then as a technical engineer, assistant editor, and eventually as a music editor. He found the field of music editorial a great fit for both his musical and technical background.

Since becoming a music editor, Ryan has worked on a variety of film projects, from musical/concert films (supervising Michael Jackson's This Is It and editing Metallica: Through the Never) to more score-driven films (The Dark Knight, Inception, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Interstellar). Working regularly with composers Hans Zimmer and Steve Jablonsky, he feels very comfortable moving between score and song/performance-heavy films at any stage of the process. He has received multiple Golden Reel Award nominations both in feature film as well as feature musical film, winning once in each category for Inception and This Is It.
