Oscar 2016: Best Sound Mixing–Mad Max: Fury Road

Best Sound Mixing: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

Backstage Comments:

“I think it will make a lot of filmmakers take bigger risks,” said Gregg Rudloff of Mad Max: Fury Road. “George Miller at 71 had all of us rise up and do our best work.”

Added Chris Jenkins, “Working with George was embracing our passion for sound in the storytelling.

When production sound mixer Ben Osmo was asked about the on-set challenges, he said: “The vehicles were noisy, and there was no way out of it. But George had to listen to the performances and hear the takes. Cinematographer John Seale couldn’t hear a thing. It was impossible for them to hear each other. I set up a communication system so George could talk to John.”

Rudloff added that the team “got along spectacularly well.” Adding, “Tomorrow will be a sad day when we go our separate ways.”
