Avid celebrates its Oscar-winning creative customers
Nominees and winners in all categories relied on Avid’s creative tools to tell their famous stories
BURLINGTON, Mass., March 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID) Congratulates Oscar-Winning and Nominated Customers for Outstanding Achievement at 94and Annual Oscars® including the Best Picture winner, “CODA,” and all of the Best Picture nominees who relied on Avid tools.
All of the Film Editing nominees, including winner Joe Walker for “Dune,” cut their films using Avid Media Composer®, the industry’s most widely used video editing software.
ACE editors Myron Kerstein and Andrew Weisblum were nominated for their work on playwright Jonathan Larson’s popular autobiographical musical, “tick, tick…BOOM!”
“We are honored to be nominated by the Academy for Best Editing,” the two editors said.. “This film not only celebrates the life of Jonathan Larson, but lifts the curtain on the process of artistic creation. We tried to do this seamlessly by interweaving footage from Jonathan’s past, present, archive footage and musical footage. It’s a complex non-linear story inspired by Fosse, Sondheim, Lin and Larson. None of this would be possible without the tools provided by Avid, our go-to editing system for over 20 years.
Sound nominees including Richard Flynn, Robert Mackenzie and Tara Webb for “The Power of the Dog”; and Denise Yarde, Simon Chase, James Mather and Niv Adiri for “Belfast,” used Pro Tools, Avid’s standard digital audio software, to bring the sound of each film to life.
Mackenzie, supervising sound editor on “The Power of the Dog”, premixed the audio on an Avid S4 and used an Avid S6 to import the softkeys and layouts. He said: “I’m so proud of everyone’s work on ‘The Power of the Dog’. We used Avid software and hardware every step of the way and the soundtrack really benefited from that workflow. We are all very touched by our Oscar nomination this year, it’s especially exciting as it’s the first time an Australian re-recording mixer has been nominated – congratulations Tara Webb!
“We are honored that the motion picture industry continues to embrace Avid’s creative tools and solutions to bring Oscar-nominated and award-winning films to life,” said Avid CEO and President Jeff Rosica. “Although eight of the award categories were not honored during the live stream this year, we want to celebrate and let fans and audiences know that categories such as Best Sound and Film Editing are essential. to a powerful narration on film.
