About Tony Lewis
Tony started in the film industry in 1998 as part of his Tonmeister Music & Sound Recording Course at the University of Surrey. Having graduated from this prestigious course with First Class Honours he quickly established himself as a specialist feature music editor. Today he is much in demand with both independent and studio pictures here in the UK and abroad.
Tony has the personality to deal with the many colourful characters we find ourselves working for, already having proved himself with an impressive list of acclaimed directors and composers. In 2008, Tony was Supervising Music Editor on Mamma Mia which went on to become the highest worldwide-grossing film musical ever. Responsible for all things musical from on-set playback to final mix, Tony won a coveted Golden Reel award from the MPSE in Los Angeles in 2009 for his work on the film.
In 2012, Tony was chosen as music editor for Sam Mendes’ Skyfall for which he constructed the temp score and co-edited the final. Tony also wrote source music for the blockbuster Bond which ended up grossing over $1.1Bn worldwide and is still the 12th highest grossing film ever.
Tony has Just finished his 3rd film for Ridley Scott. The Martian is out in September 2015.
Tony has a purpose-built 5.1 mix and cutting room at home in Surrey, but he regularly commutes to London and the out-of-town film and music studios. He has kept up his passion for music by playing trombone in and running a busy function band.
Offline and out of the dubbing theatre, Tony can usually be found chopping wood for his multiple wood-burners and open fires or mucking about with cars and campervans and watching Formula 1.
