Mountain View, CA (July 14, 2009)–Euphonix recently hosted to back-to-back audio industry events celebrating the achievements of high-end film studios in Los Angeles and London.
On June 25th in Los Angeles, Euphonix and Todd-AO threw a party at the legendary Todd-AO Hollywood film studios celebrating the grand re-opening of the facility’s two newly renovated Stage 1 and 2 dubbing theaters, each featuring a dual-operator Euphonix System 5 digital audio mixing console. This brings the total of Euphonix film mixing consoles at Todd AO to eight.
Over 100 guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and tours of the facility. Later in the evening, guests gathered in Stage 1 to listen to a presentation given by multiple Academy Award-winning sound mixer, Mike Minkler, who screened examples of his work including clips from Black Hawk Down, Dreamgirls and a sneak preview of his latest dubbing project, Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Inglorious Bastards. Minkler discussed how he approaches mixing on the Euphonix System 5 consoles and answered audience questions.
One week later, Euphonix Europe hosted a similar event at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. Dubbed as an evening to “Escape the City,” guests were treated to delicious food and drink and given the opportunity to meet and talk with Oscar winning sound mixers Ian Tapp and Richard Pryke who won the 2008 Sound Mixing Academy Award for their work on Slumdog Millionaire.
A long time Euphonix client, the Pinewood Studios Group has been steadily upgrading their facilities since 2003 when they added the first of two Euphonix System 5 consoles at Shepperton. In 2008, the renovations were completed with the installation of two new Euphonix System 5 dual-operator film-mixing consoles at their Pinewood location.
