2021 MPSE Golden Reel Awards
The 68th annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards was yesterday evening and it was honestly such a blast! It was held virtually due to obvious reasons. I honestly didn't know what to expect since I've never attended a virtual event of this nature. It was actually really cool how it was all setup! When you entered the event, you had to make sure your microphone and webcam were working. Upload a picture of yourself and your digital avatar was ready to mingle within the digital lobby. You could move around using your keyboard and click on individuals to open a prompt to begin a video call and add additional participants to the video call. Overall it was very impressive and made it fun.
I was nominated for my sound editing work for The Last of Us: Part II. With my dog Kylo rooting me on, we ended up coming home with a WIN!!! I'm so extremely excited and proud of the entire TLOU2 team! It was a lot of work and very well deserved to everyone involved!
After all of the winners had been announced, everyone was directed to the rooftop bar to celebrate! There was a virtual dance floor, DJ and even a bar with a live bartender teaching everyone how to make drinks! All in all this was a really fun and special way to celebrate everyones hard work on all their projects! Congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
