Technicolor has hired Scott Millan and Greg Russell as the company’s new theatrical sound mixing and re-recording team, to be based in Technicolor’s new sound-mixing stages located at Paramount Studios. As re-recording mixers for the past three decades, Millan and Russell have both amassed impressive credits with a combined 22 career Academy Award nominations, including four wins for Millan.
Millan and Russell recently teamed up to handle re-recording on Salt, for which they received Oscar nominations.
Their hiring is timed to the launch of Technicolor’s new theatrical sound post-production facility located in the middle of the Paramount lot, and built to Technicolor’s specifications. The new team of Millan and Russell will further advance Technicolor’s commitment to directors, producers, studios and indie productions alike by providing the industry’s best talent and creative support.
Claude Gagnon, president of Technicolor Creative Services, states, “Scott and Greg are both wonderfully talented, and as a team, they were the ideal choice as the first hires for our new Paramount theatrical sound post-production operations. Our intent is to surround Scott and Greg with world-class support in service of the Los Angeles motion picture and broadcast production community. We’re thrilled with their decision to join Technicolor.”
“The entire production team at Paramount could not be more thrilled about the announcement of Scott Millan and Greg Russell leading the Technicolor sound facility here on our lot,” says Adam Goodman, president, Paramount Motion Picture Group. “Having talent of their caliber as part of the creative process is an exciting opportunity for both Paramount features and the entire production community who will use the facility.”
“The opportunity to partner with these two historical companies makes this one of the most exciting ventures in my career,” Millan says. “It’s a great honor to join Greg and this team, and have the opportunity to contribute to its success.”
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to team up with Scott at the brand new Technicolor facility on the Paramount lot,” Russell says. “Technicolor has built an amazing facility and I’m proud and excited to be a part of it.”
Technicolor states that its new theatrical sound post-production facility at Paramount will allow for the consolidation of Technicolor’s Los Angeles-based broadcast post offerings, along with its ADR and Foley stages to now be located within a brand new, state-of-the-art environment, along with the newly constructed world-class theatrical mixing theaters. The new facility will further advance Technicolor’s “file-based” digital workflow solutions, connecting to other Technicolor facilities around the world by way of the Technicolor Production Network (TPN).
Technicolor states that it will begin broadcast and theatrical feature projects toward the end of Q3 in 2011.
