9 January 2018, Los Angeles – The Cinema Audio Society announced today that a new award has been created in memory of Edward J. Greene CAS. The award will be called the “Edward J. Greene Award for the Advancement of Sound” and will be presented when the board feels it is merited. This inaugural award will be presented to previous CAS Career Achievement Recipient and AMPAS Technical Achievement Award winner Tomlinson Holman CAS creator of THX.
“The passing of Ed Greene had a profound effect on the CAS and sound community at large. The Board of Directors and the former Presidents wanted a meaningful way to honor Ed’s memory. So this award, in Ed’s name, to acknowledge the Advancement of Sound was created”, said CAS President Mark Ulano. “Presenting this inaugural award to Tomlinson Holman who has contributed so much to the sound community in both cinema and broadcast is the perfect representation of who and what this award represents.”
Holman is exceptionally proud to receive an award named for a man he knew well and respected, Ed Greene. Ed let Tom stick his head above Ed’s during a SAG Awards and an Academy Awards rehearsal, and it was a highlight of Tom’s audio experience to see such a master at his craft.
The Cinema Audio Society awards will be presented in a sealed-envelope ceremony in Los Angeles on February 24.
The CAS previously announced that Re-recording Mixer, Anna Behlmer would be honored with the CAS Career Achievement Award and Director Joe Wright will be honored with the CAS Filmmaker Award.
In addition to the CAS Student Recognition Award, the evening will also honor Outstanding Achievements in Sound Mixing in seven categories: Motion Pictures, Animated Motion Pictures, Documentary Motion Pictures, Television Movies and Mini- Series, Television Series-One Hour, Television Series-Half Hour, Television-Non-Fiction, Variety or Music Series or Specials. The winners of the CAS Outstanding Product Awards for Production and Post-Production will also be announced at the dinner.
