Come join us for a unique insight into the processes required to prepare a motion picture soundtrack, including how the various sound elements are secured, edited and mixed to picture, plus the types of hardware used in editorial suites and dubbing stages. Our multi-member panel of editors and mixers worked on several of the films recently nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Academy Awards in the categories of Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.
The panel will comprise production mixer Thomas Curley
and re-recording mixer Craig Mann, who both worked on
"Whiplash", winners of an Oscar for Sound Mixing, plus Becky Sullivan and Andrew DeCristofaro, supervising sound editors for Oscar®-nominated "Unbroken", with the possible inclusion of Gregg Rudloff, who re-recorded Oscar-nominated "American Sniper", and Gregg Landaker, who worked on Oscar-nominated "Interstellar". Additional participants may be added closer to the meeting date.
We also plan to show selected clips from the various films that received Oscar nominations in the Sound Editing and Film Mixing categories, so the panelists can describe what they were aiming to achieve during sound design and subsequent re-recording.
Meetings are free and are open to all.
An optional pre-meeting dinner will be served at 7:00 PM. For reservations, send an email to Section Treasurer Richard Wollrich <email@example.com>, with “AES-LA DINNER RESERVATION” in the subject line, at least 48 hours in advance.
