Screen Scoring

Dennis Sands

As part of SCOR 521, the screen recording/mixing module led by multi-award-winning engineer Dennis Sands encompasses many techniques related to stem configuration and layout, panning, reverb choices, Pro Tools plugins, sound separation, and listening techniques. The 2-day module, which is held in Dennis' unique ATMOS-equipped mixing studio in Santa Barbara, covers mixing in stereo, 5.1, and more sophisticated configurations.

In addition to being a 4-time Oscar nominee (The Polar Express, Cast Away, Contact, and Forrest Gump), Dennis Sands has won Grammy and Emmy Awards for his work in sound mixing.

The Department of Screen Scoring remains grateful to BMI for its generous sponsorship of this module.
