Yet more good news for Life of Pi:
The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) today announces that Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee will be the recipient of its 2013 Filmmaker Award to be presented at the 60th MPSE Golden Reel Awards on February 17, 2013 in Los Angeles. Lee, whose latest film Life of Pi is currently in theaters, was selected for a body of work that has demonstrated superlative artistry and has advanced the craft of filmmaking.
“Ang Lee is a fascinating innovator,” said MPSE president Bobbi Banks. “He continually breaks ground through the use of the latest technology both visually and sonically. That continues with Life of Pi where his use of Dolby Atmosguides audiences into the emotional intimacy of the sound experience. The Motion Picture Sound Editors takes great pride in honoring his contributions to world cinema.”
