Oscar winner David White talks issues facing sound post

10 July 2016 10:31 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

David White.

Documentaries are often made on tight budgets and with limited crew. Along with the pressure of capturing footage as it unfolds, this can often mean sound quality is .a bit of an afterthought., according to sound mixer and editor David White.

"The capturing of sound on location for documentaries is extremely difficult," White tells If.

.I know from firsthand experience having tried to shoot documentaries myself. Trying to capture the story that.s going on in front of the camera occupies a lot of your headspace..

However, the quality of the sound that is captured on location has large implications for the time and procedures required in post-production, he says. White will discuss the consequences of poor sound for post, as well as solutions, at the Ozdox Documentary Forum's "Listen Up! A Masterclass on Sound" tomorrow evening. One issue that White says is commonplace in documentary is "wild »

Supercut Highlights The Visceral, Oscar Winning Sound In 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

6 April 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s plenty to love about George Miller’s masterful “Mad Max: Fury Road,” but the film’s captivating visual presentation often takes precedent. A movie printed on storyboards instead of a fully-formed script, it’s an exhilarating, eye-popping spectacle in every sense of the word — from John Seale’s amazing cinematography, to Jacinta Leong and Shira Hockman’s massively-inspired art direction, to the radiant orange and teal-heavy color palette, to the incredible stunt work and motorcar-fueled mayhem. With all that visual stimulation, it can be easy to forget how much Mark A. Mangini and David White’s impeccable, Oscar winning sound editing also played into the never-ending excitement of Miller’s latest. So, thankfully, Vimeo user Zackery Ramos-Taylor is here to give them their full due (beyond, you know, their Oscars) with his latest supercut, “Hearing Mad Max: Fury Road.” Read More: Watch: Video Essay Explores The Rhythm Of »

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Wins Big at Oscars 2016

29 February 2016 9:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Mad Max: Fury Road's release in May, many fans started wondering if this blockbuster would have any shot at winning Best Picture at The 88th Annual Academy Awards, which were handed out last night. As it turns out, Mad Max: Fury Road did end up taking home the most Oscars, winning six, but it was largely shut out of the major categories, such as Best Picture and Best Director, for George Miller's work behind the camera. Mad Max: Fury Road was actually one of just three movies that ended up taking home multiple awards last night.

Mad Max: Fury Road's wins were largely in technical categories, taking home Oscars for Best Costume Design (Jenny Bevan), Best Production Design (Colin Gibson; Katie Sharrock, Lisa Thompson), Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Lesley Vanderwalt, Damian Martin, Elka Wardega), Best Film Editing (Margaret Sixel), Best Sound Editing (Mark Mangini, David White »

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Gives Australia Biggest Ever Oscar Haul

28 February 2016 10:22 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Australian is reveling in the multiple Oscar award successes for “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

On Sunday night the George Miller-directed post-apocalyptic sequel collected six of the technical awards on offer, rewarding eight Australians.

The previous best total for Australia was six Oscars in four categories in 1996, when Miller’s “Babe” and Mel Gibson’s “Braveheart” amassed hauls.

Australian winners in the best production design category were Colin Gibson and Lisa Thompson.

“It never ceases to annoy me how many people it takes to make me look competent,” said Gibson in his on stage acceptance speech. “To get one of these, you’ve got an idea of the multitudes of Australians, New Zealanders, Brits, Americans, South Africans, Namibians who all came together under George’s vision to bring you a tale about a man with mental health issues, an amputee amazon and five runaway sex slaves. So I’d like »

Oscars 2016: report

28 February 2016 6:54 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Open Road / Participant Media’s journalism procedural prevailed in one of the most closely fought contests in years to claim the best picture prize at the finale of the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday.

In two of the most widely predicted wins of the night, Leo DiCaprio was named best actor for The Revenant and Brie Larson scooped the best lead actress prize for Room.

Earlier, Mexican filmmaker Alejandro G Innaritu made it back-to-back wins when he claimed the best directing prize for The Revenant after his triumph last year for Birdman. Inarritu was the frontrunner in the category after prevailing in the DGA awards.

Earlier in the night George Miller’s wildly popular dystopian adventure burst out of the blocks at the 88th Academy Awards, earning six awards including best editing and sound editing.

Margaret Sixel took the editing award after a three-in-a-row crafts triumph that saw Mad Max: Fury Road pick up statuettes for costume »

Oscar predictions: 'Mad Max: Fury Road' will win Best Sound Editing

25 February 2016 3:31 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Oscar ballots are in, meaning the upcoming Motion Picture Sound Editors Awards will have no impact on voters choices when it comes to the Sound Editing prize. The guild may, however, point our noses in the direction of which film could win, especially if Cas winner “The Revenant” repeats. Oftentimes, the two sound awards will go hand-in-hand, with voters checking off one film for both. That wasn’t the case last year, however, when “Whiplash” took Mixing and “American Sniper” won Editing. This year, four out of the five films contend in both categories, with two — “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” — battling it out for the wins. Let’s take a closer look at the nominees to try and figure out who has the best shot at victory: -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions “Mad Max: Fury Road”: Mark A.

The Crazy Way Mad Max: Fury Road Created The War Rig Sounds

3 February 2016 11:45 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the 8 million Academy Awards (rough approximation) that Mad Max: Fury Road is nominated for this year is for sound editing. While the sound, along with pretty much the rest of Fury Road was top notch, it turns out that part of what made it so great are the things you probably didn.t notice. In addition to the sounds of rumbling engines and exploding trucks, sound designer Mark Mangini added animal sounds to the mix, in order to give specifically the famous War Rig a life of its own. Mangini tells The Frame that he envisioned Immortan Joe.s chase of the War Rig as analogous to Captain Ahab chasing the White Whale in Moby Dick. With that idea as inspiration, he went to work giving the Rig a sound all its own. Eventually this led to the idea of the War Rig as White Whale becoming no »

"Bridge of Spies," "Carol" Lead BAFTA Nominations! Where's "Mad Max?" What About "Star Wars?"

9 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Leave it to the Brits! The BAFTA nominations were announced and they gave us a slightly different look at the awards season! For instance, Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight," the leading Oscar contender in the U.S. just received 3 noms including Best Film, Supporting Actor for Mark Ruffalo and Original Screenplay. No Director nomination for McCarthy.

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies," a handsomely-produced period piece led the pack along with Todd Haynes' "Carol," another handsomely-produced period piece. Both films garnered nine nominations each including Best Picture. "Bridge of Spies" and "Carol" will duke it out with "Spotlight," Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's "The Revenant" (eight nominations), and Adam McKay's "The Big Short" (five nominations) for the Best Picture trophy.

So where's "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" you ask? They're relegated to the technical categories. Apparently, sequels, no matter how great they are, can't compete with originals. »
