Sony Pictures Post Production Services also hosted last year’s inaugural Mix Presents Sound for Film Event. That event, which included welcoming remarks from Sony Pictures Studio Operations Executive Vice President/General Manager Randy Lake and a keynote address from two-time Academy Award-winning mixer Randy Thom, drew overflow crowds of sound mixers, editors, engineers and technology developers.

This year’s event promises to be bigger and better with panel discussions on music, dialog, sound effects and immersive sound, as well as a sound master class series with sessions from the industry’s top technology companies. Three-time Academy Award®-nominee Mark Mangini, MPSE,  will deliver the keynote address. Events will take place throughout the Sony Pictures Post Production complex, including the renowned Cary Grant Theatre, William Holden Theatre, Kim Novak Theatre, Anthony Quinn Theatre, Burt Lancaster Theatre and the Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage.

Several sound artists from Sony Pictures Post Production Services will take part in panel discussions including Music Mixer Joseph Magee and Re-Recording Mixer Kevin O’Connell on the Music Panel; Supervising Sound Editor Mandell Winter on the Sound Effects Panel; and Re-Recording Mixer Michael Minkler on the Mixing Panel.

The all-day event begins with a breakfast sponsored by GC Pro and concludes with a cocktail reception and special movie screening.
