The Fugitive co-producer Peter Macgregor-Scott has been tapped to present the Motion Picture Editors Guild’s prestigious MPEG Fellowship and Service Award to previously announced honoree, re-recording mixer Donald O. Mitchell, on October 5, 2013, at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City, Calif.

The Guild established the Fellowship and Service Award seven years ago to recognize an individual who embodies professionalism, collaboration, mentorship, generosity of spirit and a commitment to the labor movement.

Macgregor-Scott was co-producer on The Fugitive and produced Batman Forever, both of which garnered Mitchell Oscar nominations for Best Sound from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). The pair also collaborated on Under Siege and Batman & Robin.

As a re-recording mixer, Mitchell was a member of IATSE Local 695, the Sound Technicians local. Less than a year before his retirement in November 1998, he and his fellow post-production mixers in 695 were brought into the Editors Guild, on January 1, 1998. An active member of the AMPAS Sound Branch Executive Committee for a number of years, Mitchell served three terms on its Board of Governors and, with sound editor Kay Rose, he successfully advocated to keep the Sound Editing and Mixing awards as part of the televised Academy Awards when there was a proposal to move them to the non-televised Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony.

The Motion Picture Editors Guild (MPEG) is a national labor organization currently representing over 7,200 freelance and staff post-production professionals. MPEG is the world's premiere craft Guild that sets the standards for excellence in the post-production industry. The requirements to become a member of the Guild and to be placed on its Industry Experience Roster ensure the highest level of professionalism.
