Keeping It Reel: AES New York 2018 Presents The 145th International
Audio Engineering Society Convention’s Audio for Cinema Track

— The focus will be on movie and TV sound with seminars on scoring workflows in Pro Tools,
remixing The Fifth Element in 3D audio, re-recording and mixing for episodic TV, and more —

New York, NY, September 21, 2018 — “Even in this golden age of cinema sound technology, right next to the flashy and exciting new toys are humans making art,” noted John Whynot, chair of the 145th Audio Engineering Society International Convention’s Audio for Cinema Track, which will provide attendees an in-depth look at the latest techniques for recording, producing and mixing audio for film and video.

Following are selected seminar highlights from the Audio for Cinema Track available to All Access attendees at the Jacob Javits Center In New York, October 17 – October 20.

“Modern Scoring Workflows: Mixing Multi-Stem Score in the Box – A Master Class Featuring Alan Meyerson” will feature the legendary film scoring mixer, who has more than 200 major credits including Wonder Woman, the Pirates of the Caribbean series and other blockbusters. GRAMMY-award winner Meyerson will explain his approach to mixing multi-stemmed scores “in the box” (on computer) using AVID Pro Tools.

Emmy and Oscar winner Tom Fleischman has worked with a who’s who of TV and film directors. In the “Best Practices in Re-Recording Mixing: Focus on Episodic” session Fleischman will reprise some of his master class from last year’s AES New York Convention, but with an added emphasis on the particular challenges associated with episodic television and TV series. Fleischman will talk about approaching a project from beginning to end, crafting an audio mix to enhance storytelling, assuring continuity between episodes and more – including dealing with the lightning pace of mixing for a TV series.

More and more film scoring and post-production now involves remote recording. In “Collaboration at a Distance: Real-Time Remote Recording Tools for Scoring and Post Audio,” Robert Marshall, founder of real-time audio-over-IP company Source Elements, will examine the ways market forces, new technologies, the internet and budgetary factors have greatly altered the worlds of film scoring and audio post. Marshall will discuss the new tools available for remotely collaborating on recording sessions, and provide examples of how remote recording is being used in scoring and other disciplines.

The Fifth Element has become a science-fiction milestone and a go-to demo movie – and now it’s even more spectacular, thanks to a recently completed remastering in 4K video and Dolby Atmos and Headphone Surround 3D audio. Tom Ammermann of New Audio Technology GmbH will present “The Fifth Element – How a Sci-Fi Classic Sounds with a New 3D Audio Mix,” which will feature a listening session along with inside information about how the new production was created.
