I had the pleasure of mixing an interesting project recently. Every year, The New York Times Magazine produces a video series called, “Making A Scene,” featuring the current year’s finest performers in diverse, individual short films for the Oscar season.
This year’s films were directed by Janusz Kaminski, who’s won Oscars as DP for Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan. Edited by the talented, creative editors at Lost Planet, the 11 short films star Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Adele Exarchopoulos, Greta Gerwig, Oscar Isaac, Michael B. Jordan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Robert Redford, Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey. To watch the films, go here.
The sound designer on the project was Stephen Dewey, Machine Head. Having been my partner many years ago when we started Ravenswork, it was a pleasure to reconnect, spend some time catching up and work with him on these compelling and well-produced shorts. It’s been a long time and it reminded me of the great times we spent in the past and of the wonderful work we did together.
