The Cinema Audio Society is pleased to be participating together with the Motion Picture Sound Editors as event partners with Mix magazine for the third annual Sound for Film Event at Sony Pictured Studios in Culver City, Calif., on Saturday, September 17. This year’s theme is Sound for Film and Television: Merging of Art, Technique and Tools.
The event, held for the third year on the Sony Lot, will feature the ever-popular CAS Parade of Sound Carts in the iconic Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage. Top production sound mixers will showcase their sound carts and top manufacturers will be on hand to introduce and demonstrate the latest in wireless, microphone and recorder technologies.
The CAS will host the panel “Workflow for Musicals in Film and Television Production.” This panel, moderated by Glen Trew, CAS, will focus on live recording and other techniques for giving musical productions a more organic sound than in the past. Panelists will include Re-Recording Mixer Gary Bourgeois, CAS; Production Mixer Phil Palmer, CAS; Music Editor David Klotz; Pro Tools Music Recording and Playback engineer Gary Raymond; and others.
“We are excited to once again be an Event Sponsor together with the MPSE for this event and we have secured a substantial discount for our members who wish to attend,” says CAS President Mark Ulano. “We are very excited to be presenting both the panel on ‘Workflow for Musicals’ as well as the CAS Parade of Sound Carts during this event.”
This event offers a unique opportunity to learn from the best minds in sound.
