With Jordan Wilby, sound brings life and essence to picture
With an impressive credit list including Marvel’s multitude of television properties, Jordan Wilby (Recording Arts, 2005) channels his sonic skills to create emotion and resonance. He has worked with Disney Pixar on Brad Bird’s The Incredibles.
Jordan’s appreciation of music led him to venturing out to Los Angeles. In 2002, he enrolled in the Recording Arts program at The Los Angeles Recording School, and completed his studies in 2004. A stickler for experiential learing, Wilby secured internships shortly thereafter with Hammerhead Sound and more. A growing love for audio postproduction led him to working on properties that are now well-known and adored by audiences worldwide. Chances are, if you are a film or television lover, you have heard sounds that were sculpted by Jordan Wilby, a dynamic author of sounds both ethereal and unique. In addition to working on The Incredibles, Wilby helped bring director Terrence Malick’s vision to life in the epic film, The New World. He has also worked on Glee, True Blood, Family Guy, Dexter and American Monk. For over 10 years, Wilby has worked on several of Marvel’s Netflix series, including Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and The Punisher. He also worked as a sound effects editor on Stranger Things, a series directed by Matt and Ross Duffer. Not only has Jordan been creating and editing fascinating sounds that audiences love, he has also garnered the praise of critics, receiving in 2015 and 2016 Primetime Emmy nominations for the sound design of Marvel’s Daredevil Seasons 1 and 2, and a Golden Reel nomination.
