Cinema Audio Society Announces New Categories


Cinema Audio Society president David Fluhr announced changes to the society’s awards categories and additions to those sound mixers eligible for CAS Awards.

“We are thrilled to announce that we are adding a new category for outstanding sound mixing for an animated motion picture,” said Fluhr. “Animation is a vibrant and vital genre that spans stories for all ages and lives on for generations. The sound mixing being done in animation deserves to be recognized and honored.”

The CAS will also separate the television series category into two categories: outstanding sound mixing for television series – half hour and outstanding sound mixing for television series – one hour. There will no longer be a DVD original programming category.

The CAS also announced that in addition to the production mixer, re-recording mixers and scoring mixer, the ADR and foley mixers in both motion picture categories and in both the television movies and mini-series and television series – one hour categories will now be included in the nominations and awards.

“ADR and Foley is an integral part of the overall sound mix of a project and we are proud that these mixers will now get the recognition they so richly deserve,” Fluhr commented.

Awards for outstanding sound mixing in these six categories will be presented in a sealed envelope ceremony at the 49th CAS Awards Dinner, Feb. 16 in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

As previously announced the CAS career achievement award will be presented to production sound mixer Chris Newman.
