About Me

Betsy Gain is in the new generation of multi-hyphenate women working in digital film production. She is known for her work with sound and music, but she is also an experienced editor and director.

She recently moved to the California Sierras to support documentary filmmakers in gold country.

For the five years previously, she worked as a freelance production sound mixer, boom operator, and sound utility for narrative, commercial, and documentary filmmaking in Los Angeles.  She also worked in post sound; and she is skilled at dialogue editing and sound repair, which informs her work in production sound.  She is a recent film-school graduate with experience in cinematography, editing, and directing.

Raised in Springfield, IL, she was originally trained in Evolutionary Biology and Psychology at Princeton and The University of California, Santa Barbara.  She writes a blog called Minds Make Movies about film production and cognitive science. The pandemic shutdown led her to develop an online service called The Wording Kiosk at WordingKiosk.com.
