Cinema Audio Society Announces 2012 Nominations

The Cinema Audio Society in Los Angeles announces the nominees for the 49th Annual CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for 2012 in six categories. The Awards will be presented at a sealed envelope dinner on February 16 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. KTLA Entertainment Reporter Sam Rubin will return as the Master of Ceremonies.

During the Awards Dinner, the highest honor of the CAS, the CAS Career Achievement Award, will be presented to Production Sound Mixer Chris Newman. The CAS Filmmaker Award will be presented to director Jonathan Demme.

The Cinema Audio Society, a philanthropic, non-profit organization, was formed in 1964 for the purpose of sharing information with Sound Professionals in the Motion Picture and Television Industry.

“These nominations reflect the best work in Sound Mixing for motion pictures and television as determined by the voting members of the Cinema Audio Society and I congratulate each of the nominees,” says CAS President David E. Fluhr. “I am especially delighted to be announcing, for the first time in our history, the nominees for Foley and ADR Mixing in some of our categories, as well as the nominees in our newest category of Motion Picture – Animated.

“For the fourth year our electronic voting via Votenet Solutions went smoothly and was a secure and uncomplicated procedure for our members. Since making the switch to online voting our participation has increased while our carbon footprint has decreased.”
