Paul Rodriguez, Motion Picture and Television Sound Executive, Dies at 65

Motion picture and television sound executive Paul Rodriguez died Sept. 26 in Los Angeles following a brief illness. He was 65.

As President of South Lake Audio Services and Vice President of Audio Services and Development at Roundabout Entertainment, Rodriguez oversaw post-production sound for projects including HBO’s “Westworld.”

“Paul will be remembered for the energy, wisdom, and true dedication he gave to the sound industry,” said Tom McCarthy, President of the Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE), where Rodriguez was a long-time board member and served as treasurer for eight years. “His passing leaves a great void on our board and in the hearts of our members.” Rodriguez also produced the organization’s annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards ceremony.

For over 30 years, Rodriguez remained an active member of the professional sound community. In addition to serving in executive, sales, and creative capacities at Todd-AO/Soundelux, Wilshire Stages, 4MC, and EFX Systems, he co-owned the Eagle Eye Film Company, a supplier of picture editing systems. In 2015, he joined Roundabout Entertainment.

He is survived by his son Hunter, daughter-in-law Abbie, and granddaughter Charlie; daughter Rachel and son-in-law Manny Wong; daughter Alexa and her partner James Gill; his former wife, Catheryn Rodriguez; and his sisters.
