This year’s Academy® Award winners were announced earlier this week, with ‘Parasite’ becoming the first non-English-language film to take home the trophy for Best Picture. It also made history, becoming the first South Korean film to win the Best International Feature Film category. The film’s sound was mixed on two AMS Neve consoles – the DFC3D and Genesys – at LiveTone studios in South Korea.
AMS Neve consoles also contributed to the success of Disney Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 4’, which took home Best Animated Film, and Sam Mendes’ World War I extravaganza, ‘1917’, which won an Oscar for Sound Mixing’.
Another celebrated film release of 2019, was ‘Rocketman’. Elton John and Bernie Taupin won the Oscar for Best Original Song, ‘I’m Gonna Love Me Again’, which was recorded and mixed on an AMS Neve 88RS flagship console at the world-famous AIR Studios.
Liz Wilkinson, Communications Manager for AMS Neve said: “We are very proud that the soundtracks and music of the many of this year’s award winners has been produced on equipment designed and made entirely in Burnley. Over the past few years it’s become a regular season for people around the town to ask us how we are faring in the Oscar stakes – and once again for 2020, it’s great news!” You can see the full list of the 2020 winners here: https://oscar.go.com/winners
