Sally Boldt Music Editor
About
Sally Boldt is an experienced music editor whose credits include films from a wide array of genres, ranging from Groundhog Day, Hairspray, and L.A. Confidential to American Hustle, Tron: Legacy, and Saving Mr. Banks. Equally adept at creating a temp score in a period drama as managing the complex logistics of a musical, Sally has skill and expertise that make her a go-to music editor for films of all stripes.

Growing up just outside New York City where she learned to play the piano and flute, Sally went on to study film and media at Brown University. Upon graduating, Sally moved back to New York where she fell into picture editing, and subsequently learned about the field of music editorial. While in Los Angeles assisting on a picture editing job, Sally collaborated with the film's music supervisor to develop a temp score, and the resultant marriage of music and film editing made clear her career path. After assistant music editing on Broadcast News, Sally took over as music editor for Earth Girls Are Easy, the first of 60+ films for which she would shape and cut music.

Sally enjoys the variety inherent in the job of music editing. The frequent changes of venue, the constantly-evolving workflow, the excitement of scoring sessions -- all of these meld into a vibrant and fast-paced work environment upon which Sally thrives. Sally's passion for music is evident in her eclectic musical tastes; she listens to everything from Rachmaninoff to Roxy Music, from Debussy to Daft Punk, and beyond. A member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Sally is dedicated to her field, and looks forward to teaming with collaborators both old and new.
