Minkler moves to Todd-AO

Oscar-winning mixer arrives as facility upgrades

Three-time Oscar-winning re-recording mixer Mike Minkler has moved to CSS Studios' Todd-AO Hollywood facility, which has completed upgrades of its two feature film sound re-recording stages. Minkler -- who earned his most recent Oscar for "Dreamgirls" -- is mixing Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" at the facility, together with re-recording mixer Tony Lamberti.

"Mike Minkler is one of the most talented and accomplished re-recording mixers working today," CSS Studios president Robert C. Rosenthal said. "Mike's decision to move to the freshly upgraded Stage 1 is a crucial step in fortifying Todd-AO's dominant position in Hollywood's high-end feature film market and part of a broader strategy to respond decisively to the evolving needs of our clients."

Todd-AO has just completed the installation of two Euphonix System 5 dual-operator consoles in Hollywood.
