Emmy Award winning Production Sound Mixer and two-time IFTA winner, Ronan Hill has received his 3rd consecutive Cinema Audio Society (CAS) nomination for outstanding achievement in sound mixing, for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 ‘The Rains of Castamere’.

The 50th annual CAS awards take place on the 22nd of February in Los Angeles, California, and will profile a wide range of film and television series’ including Breaking Bad, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead.

Hill, one of the most in-demand sound recordists in Ireland, spoke to IFTN recently and gave practical tips on how to break into the industry. “Work with someone experienced. If you have a burning desire to do sound, this is really the best way to get experience. If you apply to join a training scheme such as Northern Ireland Screen’s ‘Aim High’ you can then be placed on productions like ‘Game of Thrones’ where valuable experience can be gained,” said Hill.
