Two films in which production we took part, providing miking equipment, were honored at Cannes this year.
The Palme d'Or for The Life of Adele by Abdellatif Kechiche.
Congratulations to Jerome Chenevoy, the sound mixer who did not break down, during 19 weeks under tough shooting conditions, before handing over the last two weeks.
Best Actress award for Berenice Béjo in the movie The Past by Asghar Farhadi.
Congratulations to Dana Farzaneh for his courage in front of such an actress, and for a highly successful miking, with the help of his favorite Cantar-DB, specially modified at his request.
A very talented young director, GOD, did better than Kechiche for the shooting duration record, with the movie Earth: The Movie, screened at Cannes Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, and for which we have also provided the equipment. Handling three billion year rushes was not easy, but the bet is won brilliantly: life appears and, despite some disagreements with the production who thougt that the dinosaurs were too expensive, evolution continues into Space. Check out on the internet the making of SURICATE - Earth: The Movie.
We have a thought for AATON in these difficult times, hoping that the future buyer keeps the spirit of the AATON company, and that he will release a worthy replacement for Cantar-X2.
