Sony boosts Kohut to post-prod’n prez

Post-production maven and seven-time Academy Award nominee Michael J. Kohut has been upped to president of post-production facilities at Sony Pictures Studios. Kohut reports to Sony Pictures Entertainment exec VP Ken Williams and is responsible for sound, editorial services, projection, electronic digital sound prelay, video and digital picture editorial departments.

As post-production exec VP at Sony, Kohut initiated the upgrading of the studio’s editing and re-recording facilities, including the addition of two new re-recording stages, the William Holden and Kim Novak stages.

In announcing Kohut’s promotion Williams hailed his “ability to develop, guide and implement new technologies related to studio sound” as crucial to Sony’s move toward an all-digital facility.

With more than 80 film credits over a 30-year span, Kohut’s Acad noms for best achievement in sound include “Total Recall,” “Robocop,” “War Games” and “Fame.”

Kohut joined Sony in 1990 from Lorimar, where he was VP of post- production.
