Last night at The Oscars®, it was Avid’s incredibly talented community of filmmakers, sound editors and composers that brought home the coveted statuettes.


We are so proud of the fact that each year, the world’s top storytellers in the film industry rely on Avid to bring to life some of the most beloved characters and soundtracks for moviegoers around the world. Many film editors, song composers and sound editors who used Avid’s Media Composer®, Pro Tools® and Sibelius® solutions took home awards, including: Argo for Best Picture and Best Editing, Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall for Sound Editing, Les Misérables for Sound Mixing, Life of Pi for Original Score, and Skyfall for Original Song.


Avid solutions were also used by other Oscar winners, including: Django Unchained for Original Screenplay and Actor in a Supporting Role, Amour for Foreign Language Film, Lincoln for Production Design and Actor in a Leading Role, and Silver Linings Playbook for Actress in a Leading Role. Oscar-nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild was also created with Avid solutions. We’re so excited to see these talented and creative people receive this prestigious recognition.


To keep you going throughout your Monday, we’ve put together an Oscar®-inspired playlist featuring some of our customer’s top original songs from your favorite movie sound tracks, including “Skyfall” by Adele and “The Bathtub” by Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin (featuring The Lost Bayou Ramblers).
