Surround sound lovers, pull up a chair. Our friends over at Dolby are inviting you all to "Surrounded: 7.1 Cinema & Beyond" a live streaming event they're holding this coming Monday, July 11th on their Facebook page.
Why? Well, Dolby 7.1 (the theatrical version) is officially a year old. Since it debuted last summer on 'Toy Story 3,' twenty-five feature films have been mixed directly that format, with stellar auditory results like 'Tron: Legacy' and 'Tangled' later making their way onto Blu-ray Disc.
In celebration, Dolby is hosting a Filmmakers' Forum to discuss the impact of 7.1 Surround Sound on 2D and 3D movies. Featured guests will include Erik Aadahl (the supervising sound editor on 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' 'Kung Fu Panda 2,' and 'Megamind'), Eric Brevig (the director of 'Yogi Bear' and 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'), Michael Semanick (the re-recording mixer of 'Cars 2 and 'Toy Story 3'), Rohan Sippy (the director of 'Dum Maaro Dum'), and Kinson Tsang (the supervising sound designer on 'Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen' and 'The Lost Bladesman').
HOW DO I ATTEND?
Simple, head on over to Dolby's Livestream tab on their Facebook page to watch the event live.
WHEN DO I DO THIS?
