Burlington, MA (July 6, 2016)—Sony Pictures Post Production Services is the recipient of the 1,000th Avid Pro Tools | S6 control surface, which has been installed in the 367-seat Cary Grant Theatre, the largest of its 10 rerecording stages.
Sony Pictures installed its first Pro Tools | S6 control surface in its 158-seat Anthony Quinn Theatre in September 2015. It has been used on numerous films, including Open Season 4: Scared Silly, When the Bough Breaks and season two of Bloodline, the Netflix original thriller-drama.
“By providing [the MediaCentral] platform for picture editorial, sound editorial and mixing, Avid has facilitated a seamless and collaborative process that has led to more creative thinking and new opportunities for experimenting with sound,” said Tom McCarthy, executive vice president, Sony Pictures Post Production Services, which is in Culver City, CA.
“The ability to share files and integrate different aspects of the post process not only benefits the production budget, it takes the creative process to new levels. Having a single, shared platform allows our mixers and sound editorial teams to integrate further with other aspects of the post-production process and share their creativity from the earliest stage through the final mix,” said McCarthy.
Other facilities that have recently adopted Pro Tools | S6 include CalArts, Deluxe, Eleven Sound, The Village, Smart Post Sound and Source Sound.
