HOLLYWOOD, Jun 30, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Re-Recording Mixer Michael Keller has returned to Todd-AO, the industry’s leading independent sound company. Keller, who has mixed more than 75 films, including Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Roland Emmerich’s 2012 and Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, will team with Re-Recording Mixer Mike Prestwood Smith. The pair is currently mixing Abduction for Director John Singleton and Lionsgate.
“Michael Keller is a talented mixer as evidenced by his impressive body of work,” said Robert C. Rosenthal, President of CSS Studios, Todd-AO’s parent company. “He is an asset to the filmmaking community and a wonderful addition to the Todd-AO team.”
The move marks a homecoming for Keller who previously worked at Todd-AO in the 1990s and began his career in Hollywood at the company’s affiliate, Soundelux. “Todd-AO offers great facilities, but for me, it’s more personal,” Keller said. “Soundelux and Todd-AO sparked my career 20 years ago and I think it’s time to come home to my roots.”
