From the Editors

The fall issue represents the last edition of Production Sound & Video for 2017. Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are not far behind. It’s a time to reflect, revitalize and enjoy family and friends, while thinking of the year ahead with hopes for continued health, work and prosperity.

Fall also brings a season unique to our industry, Awards Season, where our email inboxes are filled with screening invites. Take the opportunity to see these motion pictures in the venues they were designed for and support our Brothers and Sisters who toil so hard to bring us this year’s product.

We mourn the loss of legendary Production Mixer Ed Greene, with a fond tribute by Ric Teller. Daron James delves into the FCC’s reallocation of the 600 MHz spectrum, as well as a conversation with Video Engineer Chris Kieffer.

Our regular contributors, Jay Patterson with “FCC Update,” Eva Rismanforoush and the Young Workers Committee, this year’s Sound Emmy winners, “News & Announcements” and “Sound Apps” round out your reading.

Enjoy.

Fraternally yours,
Richard Lightstone and Mark Ulano
