HOLLYWOOD — Creative talent from Todd-AO, Soundelux and Modern Music are donating post production sound and music services to the documentary project Cinemability. Directed by Jenni Gold and produced by Jeff Maynard, the film (www.cinemability.com) takes a humorous and thought-provoking look at the evolution of the portrayal of “disability” in film and television.
The project features historical clips and commentary from notable filmmakers, industry executives, film historians and celebrities. It seeks to better understand the impact of the media on society, and specifically as it relates to the role of media in supporting an enlightened understanding of disability, and a movement towards societal inclusiveness.
Soundelux will contribute the services of supervising sound editor Andrew DeCristofaro. Modern Music will provide the services of music editor Sally Boldt. And Todd-AO will contribute the services of Academy Award-winning re-recording mixer Michael Minkler and Emmy Award-winning re-recording Mixer Onnalee Blank.
“I am very grateful for the strong support of our project by the teams at Todd-AO, Soundelux and Modern Music,” notes Jenni Gold (pictured). “Andrew DeCristofaro, Mike Minkler, Onnalee Blank and Sally Boldt are truly my ‘dream team’ and Cinemability could not be in better hands. It has been incredibly satisfying to experience the validation of the warm embrace offered to us, our film and our mission by this group of passionate, talented and socially engaged community of artists.”
The feature is scheduled to premiere on July 26, 2013, coinciding with the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act by President George H. W. Bush in 1990.
