About Sonny Malone:

Sonny Malone is one of the most prolific editors to work in adult entertainment. Upon graduating from Columbia College in Hollywood, CA with a focus in film and post-production, Sonny had her eyes on a mainstream career. However, it was adult studio Sin City, which had its eyes on her. Sonny has remained an adult film editor ever since. She credits much of her success to her sense of timing and ability to read an audience—two traits she honed from performing stand-up comedy. The two-time recipient of AVN’s Best Editing award cites Paul Thomas’ “The New Devil in Miss Jones” as her favorite project, as it fully challenged her creativity. In addition to working for most of the top studios in the adult industry, Sonny also launched her post-production studio, MasterWorx, over ten years ago. While Sonny would like to extend her work to directing, editing will always be her passion.
