47th annual Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Awards - winners

The Cinema Audio Society held their ceremony on Saturday night for the 47th annual CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for 2010 at the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. The mixing team for True Grit won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for Motion Picture. The team consisted of production mixer
 Peter F. Kurland, CAS
 re-recording mixers Skip Lievsay, Craig Berkey and Greg Orloff.

Althought the sound in True Grit is not flashy, it is widely admired for its subtlety and naturalness which is often harder to create. It won out over fellow nominees Black Swan, Inception, Shutter Island and The Social Network.

Television winners included Temple Grandin, Boardwalk Empire and Deadliest Catch.

The CAS awarded two honourary awards. The Career Achievement Honoree was Jeffrey S. Wexler.  The CAS Filmmaker Award Honoree was DGA president Taylor Hackford. Technical Achievement Awards were given to the microphone Schoeps Super CMIT 2U and the audio repair software program Izotope Izotope RX-2

Sound mixing differs from sound editing in that editing consists of sound selection, whereas re-recording mixing consists of blending all of the sound elements including dialogue and music as well as sound effects and foley. Production mixing is really unrelated to post-production mixing, and involves controlling the recording quality of sound on set.

The Motion Picture Sound Editors host their Golden Reel Awards for sound editing later tonight.
