Publish date:

Hollywood, CA, October 30, 2006 - SonicPool, one of Hollywood‘s leading post facilities, specializing in audio and video finishing, and offline edit suite rentals, has announced its latest television project. The announcement was made by John Frost and Patrick Bird, co -founders/Supervising Sound Mixers, SonicPool.

Spike TV‘s “2006 Scream Awards” just aired TV special was co-produced by Liquid Theory and Chloe Productions. On behalf of their client, producer Austin Reading, president of Liquid Theory, SonicPool's Frost and Bird worked as the Mixers and Sound Designers for the “Scream Awards,” which involved aggressive mixing and sound design due to the intensity of the video editing and the nasty nature of the latest horror films, including “Saw III.”

Regarding Sonic Pool‘s work, Reading said, “The guys at SonicPool did an excellent job for us. Their audio for our ‘Scream Awards‘ helped make the program extra ‘horrific‘ for our viewers!”


The worlds of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and comic books took over Hollywood during a celebration of all four genres at Spike TV's “Scream Awards 2006” ceremony, which taped at the historic Pantages Theater. The festivities were hosted by Rosario Dawson, Rose McGowan and Marley Shelton (stars of Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez's upcoming film “Grind House.”)

Amid the evening's flying bats, roaming zombies, and My Chemical Romance's elaborate performance of "Welcome to the Black Parade," this summer's blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," strutted away with four awards, followed by the hit film “Batman Begins,” which picked up three awards.

Kate Beckinsale (“Underworld: Evolution”) was bestowed the title of "Scream Queen," Evangeline Lilly ("Lost") was designated "Fantasy Fox," and Jessica Alba was named "Sexiest Superhero" for her work on “The Fantastic Four.” Special Honorees for the evening included Frank Miller, (“Sin City” and the upcoming “300,”) who received the first annual "Comic-Con Icon Award," "Scream Mastermind Award" winners Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, whose thriller "Grind House" hits theaters in 2007, and the dark prince himself, Ozzy Osbourne, who was presented with the "Scream Rock Immortal Award."
