Technicolor Sound took home the Creative Arts Emmy® Award for ‘Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited Series, Movie or a Special’ for their incredible work on Houdini – ‘Night One’.

Houdini, the two part History Channel mini-series starring Adrien Brody, follows the story of Harry Houdini and his rise to fame as the first world-renowned magician, performing his notorious illusions in front of mass audiences, including some of the most elite celebrities of that era. The acclaimed mini-series is nominated for seven Emmy Awards, including ‘Outstanding Lead Actor’, ‘Outstanding Directing’, ‘Outstanding Cinematography’, and ‘Outstanding Sound Mixing’, among others.

The Technicolor sound editing team who worked on the project is thrilled by the win. Supervising sound editor Michael J. Benavente explains, “Creating the soundtrack to the History Channel’s Houdini often seemed like a daunting challenge; but with the talents of our dedicated sound editorial team, along with the incredible support from everyone at Technicolor, we were able to create something that ultimately, became really special.  To be awarded the Emmy by the Television Academy made it an even more amazing and unforgettable experience for myself, my crew, and the entire Technicolor Sound Department.”
