'Whiplash' Sound Editor/Mixer Craig Mann Joins Formosa Group
Supervising sound editor and rerecording mixer Craig Mann, who won an Oscar for his work on Damien Chazelle's Whiplash, has joined postproduction sound company Formosa Group.
Mann arrives from Technicolor, which recently announced that it will shut down its feature film sound operation, and he will be working in a newly constructed suite at Formosa's Santa Monica facility.
In addition to Whiplash, for which he also won a BAFTA Award, Mann's credits include IFC Films' Donnybrook, which screened last month at the Toronto International Film Festival; Marshall; All Eyes on Me; and Dope. On the television side, he was recently nominated for an Emmy for his work on Waco, and he previously earned an Emmy nomination for The Pacific.
"Craig is an accomplished and versatile award-winning sound artist," Formosa Group's CEO Robert C. Rosenthal said Monday in a statement. "We are thrilled he is joining Formosa Group and we look forward to future collective success and achievement."
Mann added that he looks forward to working with Formosa's management team "to further expand my footprint in the business. Formosa has a deep talent pool and being able to provide sound mixing support to some of these supervisors, as well as continue to grow my own relationships, is something I’m looking forward to doing with them.”
Formosa's talent includes Oscar winners Karen Baker Landers, Per Hallberg, Doug Hemphill and Lon Bender, as well as Academy Award nominees including Ron Bartlett and Scott Hecker.
