Two Golden Reel awards for Avatar

Cameron’s blockbuster wins for sound and score, while Up scoops the animation category.

The annual Golden Reel Awards are where the people who really know about sound for movies – the Motion Picture Sound Editors – pay tribute to the year’s best work in the different areas of sound editing.

James Cameron’s Avatar – the undisputed box office success of all time – demonstrated that its technical qualities (and the facilities at 20th Century Fox Studios) are also a match for anyone, with two awards, for Best Sound Editing: Music in a Feature Film and Best Sound Editing: Sound Effects and Foley in a Feature Film. The score for Avatar, written by James Horner, was recorded on the Neve 88RS at Fox Studios with Simon Rhodes (on secondment from Abbey Road) as score mixer and Denis St Amand as scoring engineer.

Soundtrack production for Avatar also took place at Fox, with sound designer and supervising sound editor Christopher Boyes joined by Gary Summers, Andy Nelson, Tony Johnson and Addison Teague for the mix on the world’s most powerful film console – the AMS Neve DFC Gemini with USP (Ultra Scale Processing) engine.

The winner in the Best Sound Editing: Sound Effects, Foley, Music, Dialogue and ADR Animation in a Feature Film category was Up, also mixed on an AMS Neve DFC – this time at Skywalker Sound – with William Files and Garry Rizzo as re-recording mixers.
