Mix Presents Sound for Film: And the Award Goes To…
It’s a film loaded with controversy, a real-life tale of a doctor who exposed CTE brain trauma and forced the NFL into a decade-long program of reckoning and response. And it’s ongoing, to the point that the NFL stepped in last spring and sought to look at the content. That’s all good for an end-of-year film in the news, but from a sound angle, it stands on its own, from the body-crushing tackling on the field to the laboratory environments and board-room ambience. The dynamics from the playing field to the courtroom are expertly captured, edited and mixed, with the three-time Oscar-winning Mike Minkler at the helm. A real-life drama with real-life, rooted sounds.
