This released yesterday. Had the good fortune to work on the new David Fincher film “Mank” about the writing of Citizen Kane and the screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz. Beautiful score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Alan Meyerson mixed the orchestral underscore and I mixed all the period big band material. Yet another all-pandemic orchestra; everyone sending in their parts from their homes. Really a challenge making a bunch of tracks recorded in everyone’s 12 x 12 bedrooms sound like they’re all together on the scoring stage or in a 30’s style recording studio; such is the current challenge for all us recording engineers in these times – I don’t like the circumstances, but it’s actually a fun engineering exercise. Of course, all the players are top notch – happy to have been involved. Check it out now on Netflix!
