The Cinema Audio Society (C.A.S.) Board of Directors has voted to present the C.A.S. President’s Award to four sound editing professionals for the soundtrack restoration of seven classic Stanley Kubrick films. The presentation will be made at the 40th Anniversary C.A.S. Awards Banquet, held Saturday, February 21, 2004, in the Crystal Ballroom of the Biltmore Hotel.

Seven-time Oscar winning re-recording mixer and sound designer Gary Rydstrom, CAS, will receive the C.A.S. 2004 Career Achievement Award at the banquet. "Gary has made significant contributions to the professional standards of movie sound," said Richard Lightstone, C.A.S. president. "He has amassed an extraordinary body of work."

The President’s Award will be shared by Chris Jenkins, senior VP, Sound Services, Universal Studios; Ned Price, VP mastering, technical operations, Warner Bros.; Tom Regal, manager, audio restoration, Chace Productions; and Leon Vitali, director of Kubrick Restoration, who worked on the project. The titles involved in this incredible effort to preserve these films and their soundtracks are 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, Full Metal Jacket and The Shining.

“The care and love that went into restoring the tracks to their exact creative intent while making them more presentable by today's playback standards need to be recognized,” said Lightstone.

Jenkins, who supervised the restoration project, said, “The work took place over a year-and-a-half. The project initially started with Stanley Kubrick and me for the restoration of 2001. We soon realized that we needed to do an in-depth and complete restoration on each of the films. The mixes were done at Todd-AO, Studio One.”
