48 S U M M E R 2 0 1 9 C A S Q U A R T E R L Y John Pritchett CAS and crew, Dave Roberts on boom and Tyler Blythe, utility and wireless maven, recently finished the next Jumanji. Yet another show done mostly in Atlanta, it is to be released at Christmas. The final month of filming took us to the jungles of Hawaii, the snowy mountains of Calgary, the desert of New Mexico, and the dunes of Glamis. This all came after doing a solid year in Atlanta on both Avengers. Philip Perkins CAS has been mixing the PBS doc feature For the Love of Conch. He also day-played on Nicole Miller's (untitled) SFMOMA artist doc project and on the indie feature Agent Femme. Jim Fitzpatrick CAS has found a new home on Formosa Group Stage "F"—the former Douglas Fairbanks screening room. Just finishing up Season 16 of Family Guy and Season 13 of American Dad. I'm also working on the sound edit and mix for a four-hour documentary miniseries named Ending Disease, which delves into the controversial subject of stem cell research. Amazing potential, however, ethical issues abound. Steve Weiss CAS finished mixing the pilot for All Rise with Stacy Washer on boom and Dennis Carlin doing utility. It's been picked up for series on CBS and we are anxious to begin shooting on July 22. Lori Dovi CAS worked on David Fincher's Mindhunter for Netflix in Los Angeles with John Sheridan and Dirk Stout. What a great experience! After completing Deadwood: The Movie and Westworld, Geoffrey Patterson CAS has moved onto the HBO limited series Perry Mason. Frank Morrone CAS, Colette Dahanne CAS, and Joseph Geisinger CAS have B E E N T H E R E D O N E T H A T wrapped mixing the final episode of Criminal Minds. Brad Harper CAS just completed the feature Bailey & Darla and is currently working on episodes 5–8 of The Chosen. Michel Keller CAS and Tim LeBlanc are currently mixing It Chapter Two on Warner Bros. Stage 10 Gavin Fernandes CAS has been working his ears off. One feature: Jouliks; two episodes of Big Little Lies 2 for HBO (alongside Eric Ladouceur and Louis Gignac); three IMAX movies: mix of Superpower Dogs, premixes for IMAX Secrets of the Universe, and premixes/mixes for Train Time. Plus, 13 episodes of Blood & Treasure for CBS. Looking forward to my breakdown … I mean, break! From David Macmillan CAS: Starting my second semester at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. Now a professor after five years as an adjunct and have begun tenure track. My son David is mixing reality TV and booming on various projects. All six Macmillans are involved in "the Business" and doing well. Craig and Brian Nimens of Sound Ideas and Rob Nokes of Sounddogs signed an agreement for the acquisition of Sounddogs by Sound Ideas. Brian said of the purchase, "I have known Rob for decades and I am thrilled that Sound Ideas will be able to move forward with the name." Joshua Anderson CAS finished mixing the first season of Wu-Tang: An American Saga for Hulu in July. With him again was the ever-dependable boom operator Gregg Harris and, joining them for the first time, was 2nd boom/utility Danny Nidel. They brought back their old Smash colleague, Pro Tools playback mixer Jason Stasium and a host of other day players, including boom operator Julie Stalker-Wilde, who helped them tackle the challenges of a full episode of 9–15 page one-ers. Musical television shows are always fun and challenging but delving into the origins of the seminal rap group from Staten Island was also special, knowing the show will make their fans proud. Earlier this year, Aron Siegel CAS wrapped Season 2 of DC Comics' Black Lightning for The CW Network (part of the Flash/ Arrow universe) with the help of his crew; boom op Robert Vardaros, utility Nik Waddell, and day player utility Brittany Myers. From January until early spring, Aron jumped onto and completed Season 1 of Ambitions, starring Robin Givens for Will Packer Productions/Lionsgate on the OWN Network. It was shot at Tyler Perry Studios with boom op Jorge Del Valle and utilities Erin Martin and Nik Waddell. Taking his Ambitions crew with him in early summer, Aron mixed the feature film Waldo, starring Charlie Hunnam and Mel Gibson; a present-day Chinatown-style detective story. Karol Urban CAS MPSE and Kurt Kassulke CAS just finished a film for Netflix called Falling Inn Love and are now beginning mix on our summer series Gentefied, also for Netflix. Additionally, Marti D. Humphrey CAS and Karol mixed two films this summer together for HULU's Into the Dark horror film anthology: Culture Shock and School Spirit.
