Los Angeles, CA (December 7, 2009)—The James Horner score for the epic adventure Avatar was recently mixed by Simon Rhodes at Ocean Way’s film mixing studio Record One in Sherman Oaks.
After five years of lock out by producer Dr. Dre, the newly reopened Record One features a half-million dollar remodel and in Studio A, reportedly the largest and most sophisticated SSL film console ever built.
Written and directed by James Cameron, and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver, Avatar follows a reluctant hero who embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of Titanic, first conceived of the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now after four years of production, the 20th Century Fox film is set for December 18 release.
