It is with great pleasure, pride and pageantry that I share the following exciting news. On January 19, 2012, the Cinema Audio Society announced its nominations for the 48th CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for 2011. In a milestone career of location sound recording, Rick Angelella (of Angelella Sound Recording, Inc.) was rightly nominated in the Television – Non-Fiction, Variety or Music – Series or Specials category for his soundly work on TV’s most watched history series on PBS–American Experience–for the documentary Triangle Fire. Here is the preview:
The sound team nominated for this project include: Production Mixer: G. John Garrett, CAS; Production Mixer: Rick Angelella; Production Mixer: Everett Wong; and Re-recording Mixer: Coll Anderson. American Experience: Triangle Fire is up against Bobby Fischer Against the World; Deadliest Catch: New Blood; Great Performances At The Met: Nixon in China; and Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden. The winners will be announced on February 19 at an awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
In honor of his nomination, herein I am including my favorite “sound man” joke.
Why have you never hear a sound man count to the number three? (Check 1-2. Check 1-2. Check.) Well, that’s because if they counted to the number three, then they’d have to pick something up.
While CAS-Nominated Angelella Sound Recording has a nice ring to it, CAS Award Winner Angelella Sound Recording sounds even better–no pun intended.
