Hollywood, CA (May 21, 2013)—Todd Soundelux and creative talent from Todd-AO, Soundelux and Modern Music will donate creative post production sound and music services to support the documentary project, Cinemability.
Directed by Jenni Gold and produced by Jeff Maynard, Cinemability takes a humorous and thought-provoking look at the evolution of the portrayal of "disability" in film and television. Featuring historical clips and commentary from notable filmmakers, industry executives, film historians and celebrities, Cinemability seeks to better understand the powerful impact of the media on society—and specifically as it relates to the role of media in supporting an enlightened understanding of disability, and a movement towards societal inclusiveness.
Soundelux will contribute the services of supervising sound editor Andrew DeCristofaro; Modern Music will provide the services of music editor Sally Boldt; and Todd-AO will contribute the services of Academy Award-winning re-recording Mixer Michael Minkler and Emmy Award-winning re-recording mixer Onnalee Blank.
"Cinemability is a powerful reminder of the finest tradition of documentary filmmaking: the notion of enlightening the audience in a compelling and entertaining manner, while also challenging society to hold itself to a higher standard of social justice, equality and inclusion," said David F. Alfonso, the owner of Todd Soundelux and executive producer of the project. "Jenni and Jeff are talented filmmakers, who have embarked on an important journey to further our collective understanding of how the mass media helps shape our perceptions of, and attitudes towards, notions of disability."
Cinemability includes interviews with an extensive list of notable personalities, including Ben Affleck; Jamie Foxx; Marlee Matlin; Helen Hunt; William H. Macy; Geena Davis; Gary Sinise; Jane Seymour; Taylor Hackford; Beau Bridges; Garry Marshall; Robert David Hall; Michael Apted; Gale Anne Hurd; Ken Howard; Geri Jewell; Danny Woodburn; Peter Bogdanovich; Peter Farrelly; and Tom Sherak.
Cinemability is scheduled to premiere on July 26, 2013, coinciding with the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act by President George H. W. Bush on July 26, 1990.
