Magno Sound cordially invites NYWIFT members for an evening of presentations in their top editing suites. NYWIFT guests will rotate in three groups of 15 to 20 people per studio, as Magno engineers provide a demonstration of equipment, and present various topics relating to the audio aspect of Film/Video production. There will be a brief Q&A in each studio, allowing for a 20 to 25 minute visit in each location.
Studio A: Michael Jordan Re-recording Engineer
Jordan’s studio is a typical large-scale film mixing stage. He started his career as a location soundman and has worked as a mixer from the 1960s through the 90’s, the heyday of Mags and Sprockets.
Jordan, who is presently working on projects in both film and video, provides a wealth of knowledge on how and why the industry has changed, and how some old rules are still in operation. He’ll discuss theatrical, DVD, and broadcast release, as it pertains to Dolby.
Studio B: Mark DeSimone-ADR Mixer & Re-recording Engineer
DeSimone is one of New York’s premier ADR mixers. His client list is a who’s who of the film and television industry, and he’s worked on such hits as Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, I Robot and many more.
This studio tour will cover dialogue replacement and what editing decisions need to be made during this procedure. He’ll also discuss the preparation of ADR scripts, picture reference, time needed, budget considerations, ADR syncing, and deliverables, in addition to the use of Foleys (sync sfx) as it pertains to the creation of an international filled M&E.
Studio C: Paul Michael-Sound design-Re-recording Engineer
Michael’s studio is a state-of-the-art digital mixing stage, allowing him to approach unique situations with all of the tools that are currently available to the post production industry. Problem audio, sync issues and other situations that once seemed insurmountable are no longer a problem. Michael is regarded as one of the top re-recording engineers (mixer) in the independent market. His background in sound design helps producers elevate their films and realize their vision of the final product.
Michael will discuss the need for audio awareness throughout the filmmaking process, the things an editor needs to be concerned about during pre-production, production, and post production. He’ll also talk about distributors, deliverables and how to prepare for international releases.
