The Motion Picture Sound Editors will fete Ang Lee with its 2013 Filmmaker award.
Award honors helmer’s body of work, including “Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” and most recently “Life Of Pi.”
MPSE prexy Bobbi Banks said that Lee “continually breaks ground through the use of the latest technology both visually and sonically. That continues with ‘Life of Pi’ where his use of Dolby Atmos guides audiences into the emotional intimacy of the sound experience.”
The 60th MPSE Golden Reel Awards will be held Feb. 17 at the Westin Bonaventura hotel.
