2010 MPSE and CAS Nominations Announced

MPSE and CAS have announced the nominations for their 2010 awards, for Film and Television. All the usual suspects there, plus a few independents. In the post production technology awards we see Pro Tools recieve a nod among others, and interestingly Sound Devices Wave Agent which you can download a beta of here to try out. Still suprised not to see 'Let the Right One' in recieve a nom for Foreign film as I thought the sound was great. Anyway check them out, and lets hear what you think.....

Golden Globe Winners Announced

The Golden Globe winners have been announced, with Avatar picking up the two most prestigous awards of Best Film and Best Director. The effects in Avatar are stunning and Cameron rightly deserves the kudos as his use of 3d will change the face of cinema forever. Anyway, the full list of winners can be found here. Highlights include my Oscar tip for Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz picking up the same gong here, and Up scooping Best Animated Film.

Skynet Symphonic

This is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Made entirely of sound from Terminator 2. Kudos!

Losono 3D Sound

Just read an interesting article on the launch of Losono 3D sound mixing on Creative Cow. This is going to change everything! Very exciting. Check it out here.

Bafta Long List Nominations Released!

Bafta have released the long list nominations for the 2010 ceremony. Featuring heavily is The Hurt Locker (my film of last year along with Let The Right One In), Moon, Inglourious Basterds and Avatar. Up for the sound gong this year are:


District 9

An Education

Fantastic Mr Fox

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

The Hurt Locker

Inglourious Basterds

The Lovely Bones



Nowhere Boy

The Road

Star Trek


Where the Wild Things Are

I haven't seen all of the above, but recently watched Star Trek and the sound was immense. I expect Up will be right up there, and The Hurt Locker was also fantastic. Disappointing not to see Let The Right One In getting a nod for sound, or possibly the best film for sound of the past year, Katalin Varga. If you haven't watched that yet, make sure you catch it on Blu-Ray. Lynch-esque sound with a backdrop of the Romanian countryside alongside a revenge story. Stunning and inspired. Looking forward to seeing who wins from the above list though, some big guns there. Also, if Christoph Waltz doesn't get the best supporting actor award for his performance as Col. Hans Lander in Inglorious Basterds, there's no justice in the world!
