Sony Pictures Post Production Services will host of the second annual Mix Presents Sound for Film Conference and Exhibition, Sept 26. The theme for this year’s event, co-sponsored by the Motion Picture Sound Editors and the Cinema Audio Society, will be “Music, Effects and Dialog in an Immersive World.” It will explore the current boom in immersive sound technologies through speakers, panels, workshops and exhibits. Participants will include DTS, Dolby, Yamaha and Auro Technologies.

“The emergence of immersive sound technologies is revolutionizing and enriching the movie-going experience,” said Sony Pictures Post Production Services executive vice president Tom McCarthy. “We are very excited about the creative possibilities of these new formats and look forward to sharing the experiences and insights of our industry colleagues and friends.”

Sony Pictures Post Production Services also hosted last year’s inaugural event, which included welcoming remarks from Sony Pictures studio operations executive vice president/general manager Randy Lake and a keynote address from two-time Academy Award-winning mixer Randy Thom.

This year’s event will include panel discussions on music, dialog, sound effects and immersive sound, as well as a sound master class series with sessions from technology companies. Three-time Academy Award-nominee Mark Mangini, MPSE, will deliver the keynote address.

Several sound artists from Sony Pictures Post Production Services will take part in panel discussions including music mixer Joseph Magee and re-recording mixer Kevin O’Connell on the music panel; re-recording mixer Mandell Winter on the sound effects panel; and re-recording mixer Michael Minkler on the mixing panel.

The all-day event begins with a breakfast sponsored by GC Pro and concludes with a cocktail reception and special movie screening.
