Pro Sound Effects announces an exclusive collaboration with two Academy Award-winning audio post production veterans, Mark Mangini and Richard L. Anderson.
The multiple sound effects libraries currently in development include around 100,000 sounds from Mangini and Anderson’s private collection of recordings encompassing over 30 years of feature film sound.
“Mark, Richard and Pro Sound Effects are fully aligned in delivering world-class quality and supporting the use of sound as a powerful communications tool,” says Douglas Price, president of Pro Sound Effects. “We can’t wait to unveil the future libraries from this partnership.”
The soon-to-be-released sound libraries include material from Mangini and Anderson’s personal recording collection which continues to support their fruitful careers in the audio post industry.
In addition to a long list of credits enviable for any sound professional, Mangini won the 2016 Academy Award for Best Sound Editing for Mad Max: Fury Road. Other credits include The Fifth Element, Aladdin, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
His partner, Richard L. Anderson, has also won and been nominated for multiple awards including a 1981 Special Achievement Academy Award for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Anderson’s credits are substantial as well, including such standouts as The Lion King, Edward Scissorhands, and Predator.
“Richard and I believe sound designers will love having this library at their fingertips,” says Mangini, “giving them full access to high quality, carefully recorded, and impeccably organized professional sound effects that have been instrumental to our own success. We still use these sounds every day on award-winning films and current projects.”
Tens of thousands of Mangini and Anderson’s personal sound effects will be released in 2017 as new libraries are developed.
