It’s been a busy six months for Andy Hay CAS and his company Proper Post, with the release of six features slated for 2013. In theaters nationwide April, the apocalyptic comedy It’s a Disaster, starring David Cross and Julia Stiles, with Andy sound-designing and mixing. Later this summer, Lionsgate will be releasing the horror favorite You’re Next, written and directed by Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard. Andy picked up sound supervision and mixing duties on the film for the Lionsgate delivery. Also from Simon and Adam is the second installment in the V/H/S series, mixed by Andy at Todd-AO this past December. Coming later this year is Drake Doremus’ Breathe In, starring Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones and Amy Ryan; and Better Living Through Chemistry, starring Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde—supervision, design and mix by Andy. This May 30 will see the release of El Teniente Amado in Latin markets—a period piece shot in the Dominican Republic about the overthrow of the dictator Trujillo in 1961—supervision, design and mix by Andy. Up next is an original docu-series for Hulu, followed later this year by the Charlie Kaufman piece Anomalisa, directed by Duke Johnson in stop-motion puppetry.

Fred Ginsburg CAS and Robert Bigelow CAS will once again be anchoring the seminar/workshops offered all week at the Audio-Technica booth during the National Association of Broadcasters Conference. Fred will be presenting on the multi-track workflow and also on the selection and rigging of lavaliere mics. Robert will discuss and demonstrate the M-S stereo techniques that he utilized on HBO’s Treme. Fred and Robert will also be on hand to demonstrate and discuss the new Tascam HS-P82 multi-track field recorder, updated with the new firmware changes. During midsummer, Fred is tentatively scheduled to present a workshop on production sound at the annual conference of the University Film & Video Association, being held this August at Chapman University near Anaheim. Fred is an adjunct professor at California State University Northridge as well as at Chapman. Both universities have recently added Tascam HS-P82 systems to their film equipment inventories.

Glenn Berkovitz CAS and his crewmates John Hays and Daniel Quintana are happy to have survived a challenging and busy pilot season—from the rebooted action thriller The 44
