It was a summer of musical chairs in Hollywood as a couple of high-end post facilities announced the hiring of A-list recording mixers to their teams. In July, Technicolor announced the hiring of Scott Millan and Greg P. Russell as its theatrical sound mixing duo for the company’s new sound mixing stages located at Paramount Studios. Meanwhile, Michael Keller has returned to leading independent sound company Todd-AO in Hollywood, and will team with re-recording mixer Mike Prestwood Smith. Keller has mixed more than 75 films, including Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Roland Emmerich’s 2012 and Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. Keller and Prestwood Smith are currently mixing Abduction for director John Singleton and Lionsgate.

Millan and Russell have both amassed impressive credits as re-recording mixers during the past three decades, with a combined 22 career Oscar nominations and four wins for Millan. Millan and Russell recently teamed up to handle re-recording on Salt, for which they received Oscar nominations.

While Russell and Millan will be moving over to Hollywood from the West side, the move marks a homecoming for Keller, who previously worked at Todd-AO in the 1990s and began his career in Hollywood at the company’s affiliate, Soundelux.
