Bohemian Rhapsody Sound Team confirmed for the Industry Program of FEST 2019

"Bohemian Rhapsody" Sound Team
confirmed for FEST 2019 industry program

FEST 2019, from June 24th to July 1st, in Espinho, Portugal

John Warhurst, Tim Cavagin and Nina Hartstone are the new confirmations on FEST’s 2019’s Training Ground. Specialized in the field of sound, together they compose the Academy Award-winning sound team for “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

During FEST they will be presenting a Masterclass using the case study of “Bohemian Rhapsody” strategies and work process, focusing, mainly, on the solutions they’ve created to overcome the challenges created by the production. How to make Freddie Mercury's voice sound genuine, the brain-surgery editing precision required or the custom sounds they had to record (concert crowds, people clapping, piano keys thumping) will be some of the main topics reviewed and dissected by the experts.

Hosting this very special session we will have Eddy Joseph, Sound editor of films such as"Quantum of Solace" , "United 93", "Cold Mountain", "Corpse Bride" and many more

John Warhurst was the supervising music director in the film that earned him the first Oscar win of his career. Warhurst also received a BAFTA for his work on the 2018 film but he was no stranger to this award, having won another in 2013 for his work on “Les Misérables”. Some of his major works also include “Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” (2007) and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" (2017). 

Nina Hartstone is a supervising dialogue/ADR editor that has worked previously with Warhurst in films such as “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” (2003), “Bidget Jone’s Baby” (2016).

Tim Cavagin is a re-recording mixer that tops off the trio. Some of his previous works include “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” (2015), “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” (2017) and “Baby Driver” (2017), the latter one resulting in an Academy Award nomination for Best Achievement in Sound Mixing.
