Sony post facility nabs Todd-AO vets

Adds mixers Millan and Beemer to the mix

In a reflection of the talent shuffle accompanying consolidation in Hollywood’s post-production community, Sony Picture Entertainment’s post operations have snapped up a pair of well-known Todd-AO sound mixers.

Making the jump from the indie audio-post giant to the Culver City studio lot are rerecording mixers Scott Millan and Bob Beemer.

“Scott and Bob are highly respected, and their tremendous talent will be a huge asset to us,” said Richard Branca, senior VP sound, video and projection operations at Sony Pictures Post Production Facilities.

Millan is a dialogue and music mixer who’s spent the past 10 years at Todd-AO after stints at CBS, Larson Sound and SunWest Recording Studios. Beemer is a sound-effects mixer who’s been at Todd-AO for more than two years after tenures at Fox, Skywalker Sound South and Warner Hollywood.

Since 1998 the pair worked together at the Todd-AO West facility in Los Angeles on films including “Gladiator,” “American Beauty,” “There’s Something About Mary” and “The Waterboy.” Their work on “American Beauty” was nominated by both the Cinema Audio Society and the British Academy in best sound categories.

Liberty Livewire, a unit of John Malone’s Liberty Media Group, recently took over Todd-AO Corp. Liberty also has snatched up sound-design indie SounDelux and video post group Four Media Co.
