The second annual “Mix Presents Sound for Film” event was held last September at Host Sponsor Sony Pictures Studios, in Culver City, Calif., September 26. “The Art of Sound Design: Music, Dialog and Effects in an Immersive World.” More than 400 attendees were treated to a series of Master Classes on Immersive Sound by Dolby, DTS DSpatial, AID and Auro Technologies, to go with expert panels on Music, Dialog, Effects and Mixing. And in the hallways and mixing stages at Sony, leading manufacturers and organizations in film sound showcased their technologies and talents. The event included a sponsor trade show area, giveaways, breakfast, lunch and a cocktail reception before a VIP screening of Mad Max: Fury Road in Dolby Atmos, in the William Holden Theatre. Using onsite catering from Wolfgang Puck, attendees were treated to some great food in the Rita Hayworth room, outside the audio post offices and down Main Street on the Sony lot.
