Zhe Wu grew up in China and is based in London. She works worldwide as a sound designer and re-recording mixer. In 2010, she received two Verna Fields nominations for Golden Reels Awards from the MPSE (Motion Picture Sound Editors) in Los Angeles and a Best Sound nomination from the British Animation Awards. Wu worked with artist filmmaker Sarah Turner on her two feature films Perestroika and Public House. She has also worked on the film installation The Running Tongue by Siobhan Davies and David Hinton. Rather than creating sounds that simply "enlarge" the picture, she is interested in sound design that enhances the emotion and storytelling of the film.
