There is certainly a full circle legacy to Tom Morris’s recent appointment as Sound Editor at Windmill Lane but let’s not hope that’s the end of this family story. Tom’s father, James Morris, and uncle, Tim Morris, have both worked for Windmill Lane (going back as far as 1978) and would both, no doubt, approve of his decision to join the growing post production studio based in Dublin, Ireland.
“I’m from Dublin originally where I received a BA in Jazz performance. I got my start in the audio post industry in Windmill Lane back in 2015 as an intern, and then moved to New York City. I worked at the audio post facility Heard City for six years, where I specialised in high-end commercial mixing/sound design. I worked on projects for clients like Google, Mercedes, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Bank of America.”
The fact that Tom worked as an Intern at Windmill Lane, before jetting off State-side, has a full circle to it. Having honed his craft working with major companies – he feels ready for the challenge.
“I will bring my international commercial experience to the audio team at Windmill, where I hope to make great connections with the agencies here and make a name for myself. I will also be working on some exciting long form projects, sound editing as well as mixing.”
When asked how it feels to be back at his “old stomping ground” Tom says “I’m thrilled to be back at Windmill Lane, the team and facilities here are amazing. It’s an exciting time for the industry and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in and meeting new people.”
CEO, Dave Quinn, is delighted with the company’s latest addition; “Our client base is global so having someone, such as Tom, on board is critical. He will bring a fresh perspective, new ideas and a wealth of experience to the table. Hopefully we can nurture his career and we are so excited to see what he does as Mixer / Sound Editor.”
