Los Angeles, CA (January 16, 2015)—The recipient of the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Student Recognition Award will be revealed and presented with a $2,500 check at the 51st Annual CAS Awards on February 14 in Los Angeles.
Five finalists from schools across the country have been invited to attend the 51st Annual CAS Awards. “I am thrilled to announce the finalists for the first CAS Student Recognition Award. They represent the future of sound mixing,” said CAS president David Fluhr, “and after getting to know them via their applications and faculty recommendations, I can confidently say, that future is in good hands.”
The CAS Student Recognition Award Finalists are:
Chapman University, Dodge College of Film and Media Arts – Orange, CA
New York University, Graduate Program
Savannah College of Art & Design – Savannah, GA
University of Colorado Denver
Eligibility for the CAS Student Recognition Award was open to any student enrolled and in good standing in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program at an accredited college or university. Students may be pursuing any major (indeed, many current CAS members majored in music, psychology, English, engineering and other fields), but should have a demonstrated interest and some experience in production and/or post-production sound for film and television.
The awards will be presented at a sealed envelope dinner on February 14 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. During the awards the highest honor of the CAS – the CAS Career Achievement Award will be presented to production sound mixer David Macmillan, CAS. Doug McIntyre, host of KABC Talk Radio’s McIntyre in the Morning, will be returning as the master of ceremonies.
