The Cinema Audio Society board of directors congratulated Frank Morrone on his recent election to president of the Motion Picture Sound Editors, (MPSE).
“Frank is a long time CAS member, a colleague, and has been a very active participant,” said CAS president, David Fluhr. “We will miss Frank’s participation on our board, but we look forward to many years of close collaboration with the MPSE.”
Bobbi Banks, who had served as president of the MPSE for eight years, recently resigned citing personal reasons. The MPSE elected former VP Morrone to complete her term.
Morrone is re-recording mixer with extensive experience in film and television. He is the recipient of multiple MPSE Golden Reel awards and nominations, along with two Primetime Emmy awards and an additional five Emmy nominations.
“Our mission is to pursue greater recognition for our members and to educate the entertainment community and general audience regarding the importance and artistic merit of the sound track,” said Morrone.
The CAS also announced that it has added new board alternates – Peter Devlin and Bob Bronow – to its board of directors.
