Four-time Academy Award-winning re-recording mixer Bob Beemer has joined post-production sound company Todd Soundelux.
Beemer, whose recent credits include Last Vegas and Pitch Perfect, has just completed work on The Angriest Man in Brooklyn for director Phil Alden Robinson.
“We are very pleased to welcome Bob Beemer to our team of talented artists,” said David F. Alfonso, the owner and chairman of Todd Soundelux. “We remain committed to attracting and retaining the finest creative talent in the business, and continuing to lead as the destination-of-choice for content creators working across all media platforms. Our group has enjoyed a long and successful working relationship with Bob, collaborating with him on several highly notable projects.”
Beemer has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, and received the film industry’s most coveted trophy on four occasions, in recognition for his creative contributions on Dreamgirls (2007); Ray (2005); Gladiator (2000); and Speed (1995).
“I have known Bob Beemer most of my career,” said Kevin O’Connell, who, in addition to working as a re-recording mixer at Todd Soundelux, also serves as the company’s chief creative officer. “The team at Todd Soundelux is in the middle of a highly dynamic and exciting process to envision and deploy a talent-friendly and client-centric next-generation post-production sound company. We are seeing an unprecedented level of interest in our efforts from members of the creative community, and Bob’s decision to join us at Todd Soundelux represents yet another key validation that the market is ready for our continued creative and technological leadership at this pivotal point in time for our industry.”
"Today's sound professionals are faced with a relentlessly advancing motion picture industry,” said Bob Beemer. “We must provide a safe and stable environment for filmmakers to complete their creative process, while keeping current with technology and business trends. This requires teamwork. Where I mix a film makes an enormous difference in balancing this challenge. The fellow creative people, the facilities and the management team make all the difference in how effectively and efficiently I help filmmakers. Because I have known much of the staff at Todd Soundelux for so long, I am happy to join this group. I know that any filmmaker I work with will have the same peace of mind I do with the outstanding resources, technology, talent and support Todd Soundelux provides."
