The upcoming 135th AES Convention in New York City, October 17-20, 2013, will feature a special Sound for Picture workshop track chaired by film sound department professional Brian McCarty (pictured). Created by the AES Sound for Digital Cinema and TV Committee, the sessions will each feature Oscar- and Emmy Award-nominated and -winning professionals discussing their craft and the latest technology and techniques used for sound capture, mixing, editing, loudness and more.

The workshops will include Cinema Sound—Test Evaluation & Screen Performance; Cinema Sound Master Classes (Music Production for Film, Sound Design for Film, Dialog Editing and Mixing for Film); World-Class Cinema Sound Mixers Discuss Their Craft; Sound for Reality Television—Reality Is Hard Work! (featuring the crew from a popular reality series); Creative Dimension of Immersive Sound—Sound in 3-D; and Film Soundtrack Loudness: Control and Standardization.

“The Sound for Picture workshops have been a huge hit at recent conventions, and at the upcoming New York show, we have taken the program to the next level," says McCarty, whose film credits include On Golden Pond, The Big Lebowski, Dick Tracy and more. "Sound engineers in television and film are the largest group of working audio engineers of any field, and it is important that the AES Convention addresses their needs with the most up-to-date developments and information available. Attendees will learn about the most advanced and current tools and operations used by Hollywood to produce every aspect of sound for film and television.

“I am excited for every session, but especially for the reality TV segment," McCarty continues. "This is sure to be a highly informative and entertaining session for all in attendance. Additionally, I am excited for the three master class sessions. This is the first time that music production, sound design and dialog editing/mixing for film have been assembled together into a masterclass series. We have top professionals in the crafts of dialog, music and sound effects/sound design. We will get to see and hear how a soundtrack is created, completely from scratch into a finished production.”

The AES states that more information on this workshop track will be made available in the weeks leading up to the convention.
