Sound designers, editors, mixers, recordists, Foley artists, composers, technologists, chief engineers and all those working in audio post-production, mark your calendars: The fourth annual Mix Presents Sound for Film and Television will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017, once again on the lot of Host Sponsor Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif.
Following its launch in 2014, with a focus on the emerging Immersive Sound formats, the one-day exhibition and expert-panel event has expanded into sound design, production sound, virtual reality, television post and other areas. Last year saw the addition of the Production Sound Pavilion, the Dolby-sponsored VR Demo Room and the end-of-the day Sound Reel Showcase, where 8-minute reels from 12 different films were introduced by their sound teams.
“Each year has been better than the last, and that’s what you hope for,” says Tom Kenny, editor of Mix. “We have tried to introduce new areas of the sound-for-picture world each year, while keeping in mind that the core audience is rooted in the creative use of technology. This year we will be adding a Composer’s Lounge, where the audience will be able to interact in small groups with some top musicians and artists writing for visual media. I’m excited to start calling up some of the talent!”
Mix Presents Sound for Film & Television is held in the world-class re-recording stages and post-production facilities of Sony Pictures Studios and produced in coordination with the Motion Pictures Sound Editors and Cinema Audio Society.
Details on programming, panelists, sponsors and keynote speaker will be released in the upcoming weeks and months. Visit mixsoundforfilm.com.
