While Amplified focuses mainly on sound editors and Foley artists, Kelly Bayett, pictured on the right with interviewer Lauren Ravenell, is also a business owner. Bayett is partner and creative director at Barking Owl Sound, a sound design company that works on viral, commercial and feature products for clients. The company has worked on campaigns for Volkswagen, Nike and Samsung among others.
“I wanted the main thing that mattered to be their creativity and their work,” Bayett said during her interview. She explained that since the beginning, Barking Owl has aimed to create a warm, inviting culture for both clients and employees. Despite her success, Kelly has also experienced discrimination and inequality in the sound industry. Hear more of her story in our upcoming documentary, Amplified: Women in American Film Sound.
