Additionally, Avid in Burlington, Mass., announced that the picture editing, sound editing and sound mixing teams behind Game of Thrones relied on Avid Artist Suite audio and video solutions to create the hit series. Sound post-production company, Formosa Group, which scored two awards for its work on the series, relied on Avid Pro Tools or both sound editing and mixing.
"Game of Thrones relies solely on Pro Tools for the sound editorial and mix,” says Supervising Sound Editor Tim Kimmel. “Sound editorial on the show is done in multiple countries, so having a platform that’s so easy to use—and widely recognized as the industry standard—makes this international collaboration much easier. Pro Tools' vast array of plug-ins, ability to handle massive amounts of tracks, and easily configured session layouts are essential to getting this show sounding great, and done on time.”
Sound mixers Phillip W. Palmer, Larry Benjamin and Kevin Valentine used Avid Pro Tools | HDX for sound editing and mixing on Better Call Saul. “We love working on Better Call Saul because the producers are very collaborative and give us creative freedom to experiment,” says Re-Recording Mixer Benjamin. “We rely on Pro Tools | HDX not only as our editorial engine but as our mix engine, giving us the flexibility and power to accomplish whatever creative challenges we face. The workflow is very fast and efficient and I'd never want to go back to mixing on a traditional console, especially when it comes to implementing fixes."
