Matthew Wood is a supervising sound editor at Skywalker Sound.
HDFilmTools has a 3 part (currently only parts 1 & 2 are available) video interview with Matthew discussing a variety of things.
He talks about the role of supervising sound editor in realising the director's vision for the use of sound within a film and how he approaches the start of a film through spotting for effects, etc.
He also talks about how he started at Skywalker Sound when he was 17 and the roles he's had within the company since then and who he has worked with.
He briefly discusses the software that he uses on a daily basis - namely ProTools and the Waves plugins.
Part 2 ends with a discussion of his work on Wall-E and how the process of working on an animation is different to a "normal" film.
