UK Production Sound Mixer John Casali (AMPS) was awarded an Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) for Sound Mixing for the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. As Production Sound Mixer John was part of the Sound Mixing team with Oscars also awarded to Paul Massey and Tim Cavagin as Re-Recording Mixers for post production.
For his work in Bohemian Rhapsody, John was also included in the recent BAFTA award for Best Sound, included in the UK AMPS award for Excellence in Sound for a Feature Film, and included in the C.A.S. Award in the USA for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for Motion Pictures.
All of his recording for Bohemian Rhapsody was accomplished with his two Aaton Digital CantarX3 multitrack field recorders.
“I used them for dialogue and for music. Whatever you feed into those pre amps sounds amazing.”
“I have only ever used a Cantar. I had an X1, X2 and now two X3’s. I love the CantarX3. It’s an amazing multitrack recorder and now I can't imagine using anything else. It does everything I want and so much more. Once you’ve used a CantarX3 you will never go back.”
John has worked as a Production Sound Mixer on an impressive list of movies including Darkest Hour, Assassin’s Creed, Beauty and the Beast and Justice League. Visit his IMDB profile here.
