Awards: Room sound editor Niall Brady has been nominated for Golden Reel Award

Nominations for the Motion Picture Sound Editors‘ 63rd annual Golden Reel Awards have been revealed, and Ardmore Sound and Screen Scene’s Niall Brady has been nominated in the category of Best Sound Editing (dialogue and ADR in a Feature film) for his work on Lenny Abrahamson’s Room.

The MPSE Golden Reel Awards recognise excellence in an array of sound editing achievement, from sound effects and foley to dialogue and ADR to music and score integration

[quote title=”Niall Brady”]It’s fantastic to be recognised for this award and to be a representative of the great sounding work that my colleagues and I at Ardmore Sound and Screen Scene Sound are doing, special mention must go to Steve Fanagan and Ken Galvin, the re-recording mixers on Room, and Peter Blayney. Of course this nomination isn’t even a flight of the imagination without the incredible work of Lenny Abrahamson, Emma Donoghue, Ed Guiney and all at Element Pictures, and A24[/quote]

Brady competes with fellow sound editors from Bridge Of Spies, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, Sicario, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Straight Outta Compton.

Full Sound Post on Room took place at Screen Scene and at Ardmore Sound. The film was edited by Independent Spirit Award nominee, Nathan Nugent (with who we spoke recently), with Screen Scene providing all the films visual effects.

Room, which was recently nominated for four Oscars including Best picture and Best Director, is currently screening in cinemas nationwide.
