Technicolor Mixes In Four Sound Pros (EXCLUSIVE)

Oscar winner Gregg Rudloff joins expanded roster on Paramount lot

Technicolor is beefing up the roster of sound pros, adding re-recording mixers Gregg Rudloff and Joe Barnett, and supervising sound editors Julian Slater and Dror Mohar.

Rudloff, an Oscar winner for “The Matrix” and “Glory,” is teaming with re-recording mixer Scott Millan, himself a four-time Oscar winner. The pair are already working on the upcoming James Bond pic, “Spectre.” Rudloff’s recent credits include “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “American Sniper.”

Millan previously teamed with re-recording mixer Greg P. Russell. Russell is readying for work on Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.”

Slater was sound designer on “Mad Max: Fury Road” and is working on Louis Leterier’s “Grimsby.” His recent credits include “The Danish Girl” and Joel Edgerton’s feature directing debut, “The Gift.” He has received two Primetime Emmy nominations.

Barnett recently complted mixing on Robert De Niro starrer “Hands of Stone,” and will team at Technicolor with Adam Jenkins.  Barnett’s credits include theatrical films “American History X,” “Laurel Canyon” and TV series “Prison Break” and “Bloodline.”

Mohar’s credits range from “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” to “Django Unchained” to “Lone Survivor.” He has been nominated for four Golden Reel Awards by the Motion Picture Sound Editors. He is working out of the company’s Tribeca facility in West Los Angeles while working on Peter Berg’s feature “Deepwater Horizon.”

Rudloff, Slater and Barnett are working out of Technicolor’s Paramount facility.

During the celluloid era, Technicolor’s sound offerings were limited and mostly focused on television, but with the digital transition the company has diversified its offerings and made a major push into feature film sound. Technicolor’s sound group is home to the Academy-Award winning “Whiplash” sound team of Ben Wilkins and Craig Mann and to Emmy winner Michael Benavente (“Houdini”).
