The Sound of Hacksaw Ridge

In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection sound profile we talk with Director Mel Gibson about his new film Hacksaw Ridge and his collaboration with his sound and picture team including Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Robert Mackenzie, Supervising Sound Editor and Re-recording Mixer Andy Wright and Picture Editor John Gilbert.


The true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life -- without firing a shot -- to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.
