Emmy winning sound editor James Mather began his career in animation working for Aardman Animation on projects like Chicken Run. The lessons he learnt taught him how to turn fantasy into reality. This stood him in good stead for his work on four films in the Harry Potter franchise. His latest project was Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation.
We caught up with James just after he had been interviewed by Avid’s Tony Cariddi on the Avid stand at IBC in Amsterdam this year. In this Podcast Extra Interview James and I talked about the ground breaking work that took place when it was decided to take 6 months out of the post production schedule to bring forward the release date, and how mixing in box, and a flexible team made this possible.
