Doc Kane — an Oscar nominated ADR mixer who worked on many classic animated films from Disney and Pixar — will receive the Cinema Audio Society Career Achievement Award at the 52nd CAS Awards, Feb. 20 at the Millennium-Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
Kane has been a sound mixer at the Walt Disney Studios for nearly three decades, responsible for original dialogue recordings of many Disney animated films, including Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King and Frozen, as well as all Pixar Animation Studios features, from Toy Story to the upcoming Finding Dory.
He earned Academy Award nominations for his work on Ratatouille, The Incredibles, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. He also received a Motion Picture Sound Editors' Golden Reel Award for The Iron Giant and has been nominated for six CAS Awards.
"Doc is one of the greats, with hundreds of projects to his credit, he is an icon in the world of ADR mixing and motion picture sound — a great artist and person," said CAS president Mark Ulano.
