Dorn received an Oscar nomination for Christopher Nolan’s debut feature, Memento (along with nominations for an AFI Film Award and the ACE Eddie Award for her editing). That same year, Dorn earned Emmy and Eddie Award noms for her work on the ABC miniseries, Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows.
Throughout the 1980s, she worked mostly in the sound arena, with additional supervising and sound editing credits that include Silverado, The Big Chill, Mrs. Soffel, Racing With the Moon, The Big Easy and Children of a Lesser God.
Dorn started the sound company Sonic Kitchen in 1989 with sound designer/composer Blake Leyh, and, in 1990, won a Golden Reel Award for Best Sound from the Motion Picture Sound Editors Society for James Cameron’s The Abyss.
Following her work on Memento, Dorn reunited with filmmaker Nolan on his next feature project, Insomnia. She then began a collaboration with Ridley Scott, editing his next three films — Matchstick Men, Kingdom of Heaven and A Good Year.
Dorn most recently completed work on 2017’s Power Rangers.
