NewBay, publisher of Audio Media International and its US sister title Mix has announced that the fourth annual Mix Presents Sound for Film & Television event will be held on 16 September 2017, once again on the lot of host sponsor Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calfornia.
The event provides a networking and education conference for sound designers, editors, mixers, recordists, Foley artists, composers, technologists, chief engineers, and all those working in audio post-production, while a number of manufacturers will also present product demonstrations.
Following its launch in 2014, with a focus on the emerging immersive sound formats, the one-day exhibition and expert-panel event has expanded into sound design, production sound, virtual reality, television post, and other areas. Last year saw the addition of the Production Sound Pavilion, the Dolby-sponsored VR Demo Room, and the end-of-the day Sound Reel Showcase, where eight-minute reels from 12 different films were introduced by their sound teams.
“Each year has been better than the last, and that’s what you hope for,” said Tom Kenny, editor of Mix. “We have tried to introduce new areas of the sound-for-picture world each year, while keeping in mind that the core audience is rooted in the creative use of technology. This year we will be adding a Composer’s Lounge, where the audience will be able to interact in small groups with some top musicians and artists writing for visual media. I’m excited to start calling up some of the talent!”
Details on programming, panelists, sponsors and keynote speaker will be released in the upcoming weeks and months.
