Congratulations to Walt Disney Animation’s Frozen for winning the OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN SOUND MIXING for an Animated Feature at the 50th Annual CAS Awards on February 22, 2014, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.
Among the award recipients are Walt Disney Sound’s own David Fluhr and Feature Animation’s Gabriel Guy. David and Gabriel mixed the box office phenomenon on Disney’s Stage A, which has been completely re-designed and re-engineered as perhaps the most technically and creatively advanced re-recording theater in the world. One of the first animated films to be mixed entirely and from the beginning in the new Dolby Atmos system, Frozen made amazing use of this new immersive sound mixing and presentation format. Frozen’s expansive soundscape and deep sonic richness has helped to drive Frozen’s instantly iconic music and songs to top of the chart status. We are so proud of artists like David and Gabe whose talents helped audiences to truly connected with the warmth of this icy world.
