Academy to Present 40 Years of Sound for Film

HollywoodNews.com: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Science and Technology Council will present “40 Years of Sound for Film” on Tuesday, March 6, at 8 p.m. at the Academy’s Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood. Oscar®-winning sound mixers Chris Newman and Tom Fleischman will explore the intricacies of building a motion picture soundtrack using clips from such films as “Hugo,” “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The French Connection.”

The program will demonstrate how the raw tracks recorded on a set become part of the finished soundtrack through the collaboration of sound mixers, sound designers, sound effects editors and foley artists. Newman and Fleischman also will discuss how sound mixing has been influenced by advances in digital technology, and share stories of working with directors like Jonathan Demme, Milos Forman, William Friedkin and Martin Scorsese.

Newman and Fleischman have more than seven decades of experience and 13 Oscar nominations between them. Newman has won Academy Awards® in the Sound category for “The Exorcist,” “Amadeus” and “The English Patient”; Fleischman won his first Oscar for his work on “Hugo” at last Sunday’s 84th Academy Awards.

Audio tracks for the presentation are courtesy of MGM, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Tickets for “40 Years of Sound for Film” are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.oscars.org, at the Academy box office (8949 Wilshire Boulevard, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), or by mail. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The Linwood Dunn Theater is located at 1313 Vine Street in Hollywood.
