Sound editors Claire Ellis and Tom Foster from Molinare’s audio department have won a Golden Reel Award for Best Sound and Music Editing on a Longform TV Documentary.

Ellis (Dialogue Editor) and Foster (Sound Effects Editor) were in LA presented the award in LA by director Guillermo del Toro, for their work on the Netflix documentary My Beautiful Broken Brain, alongside Supervising Sound Editor Nick Ryan.

The awards, which recognise the best in sound across film, TV and gaming were set up by the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) and are now in their 64th year.

My Beautiful Broken Brain tells the story of Lotje Sodderland, a then-34 year old woman who suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and lost the ability to read, write and speak. The documentary follows Lotje’s journey through rehabilitation in the year following her stroke.

Ellis and Foster had also been nominated in the TV Documentary Shortform category for the Netflix documentary The White Helmets (shortlisted at this year’s Oscars), while Ellis was nominated again in the same category with Tae Hak Kim for their work on the Netflix documentary series Captive.
