Todd-AO (an Ascent Media company) announced that two-time Academy Award-winning re-recording mixer Scott Millan has been signed to a deal in which Millan will return to Todd-AO. Millan, who left Todd-AO in 2000 to accept a position with Sony Pictures Studios Post-Production, will be returning to Todd-AO effective August 1, 2004.
In addition to having won two Academy Awards (Gladiator in 2000 and Apollo 13 in 1995), Millan has also won a BAFTA Award, three C.A.S. Awards and
five Emmy Awards.
Millan rejoins Todd-AO as senior VP of creative sound services, studio operations. He will join the senior management team and participate in the direction of studio operations, as well as working closely with the creative sound services staff, including two-time Academy Award-winning re-recording mixer Michael Minkler.
"Along with our existing mixing staff, Scott will represent the studio side of creative sound services here at Ascent Media. His stellar reputation for attention to detail and pursuing excellence in the art of sound make him an
excellent addition to our team," said Lon Bender, president of Ascent Media creative sound services. "Having Scott now decide to return to the Todd-AO family is an important vote of confidence from one of the industry's premier mixing talents that Todd-AO has re-defined itself as the major innovator in our business."
Millan, who first joined Todd-AO in 1990, said, "Several of the highlights in my career have come either as part of the Todd-AO organization or working closely with the people of Soundelux, Todd-AO and the rest of the Ascent Media family. I have tremendous respect for this extraordinarily focused and forward-thinking community of creative professionals and I am looking forward to returning to such a creative powerhouse to work alongside so many people whom I regard
as personal friends."
