Motion Picture Editors Guild To Honor Mitchell

Won Oscar for 'Glory'

Donald O. Mitchell will receive the fellowship and service award from the Motion Picture Editors Guild on Oct. 5.

The veteran sound re-recording mixer has had a nearly 50-year career in the industry, dating back to his beginnings at 20th Century Fox in 1955. The first of his 14 Oscar nominations came for 1973’s “The Paper Chase,” and he won an Oscar with fellow mixers Gregg Rudloff and Elliott Tyson for 1989’s “Glory.”

“He has consistently exemplified the qualities that this award has been created to recognize,” said MPEG board prexy John Trask. “By his example, he has inspired present and future sound personnel, contributing a legacy to our craft that will last well into the future.”
