“For thousands of years, we’ve been telling stories in the dark around a flickering light, whether a campfire or a projector. David and I do it with sound. I knew sound could tell my story, but nothing quite like this. Sound artists are storytellers” – from the spectacular Mark Mangini’s acceptance speech at the 2016 Oscar Awards
Consummate sound designer, immensely talented, incredibly humble, and genuine – those are just some of the many, many ways to describe the one and only, exceptional Mark Mangini! However, if we had to describe him in one word (which would be oh, so difficult), the one word that best describes him is a genius. The sensational sound designer Mark Mangini has brought the world an endless amount of absolute masterpieces – from “Mad Max: Fury Road,” to “Star Trek,” “The Green Mile,” “Blades of Glory,” The Flintstones, and the list goes on and on. Ever since his first ever project he worked on, Mark Mangini has always been a winner in our hearts; and this year’s 2016 Oscar Awards was extra special as the remarkable Mark Mangini received his beyond well-deserved Academy Award for his work on “Mad Max: Fury Road”.
He’s brought families together to sit down and watch a movie in a time when being on social media is just so common, he’s made movies 100x better because what would your favorite movie be like without sound, and he has managed to put a smile on everyone’s faces. Mark Mangini, the world can only thank you for being the stupendous mastermind that you are!
The outstanding Mark Mangini always leaves everyone in awe with everything he does: from his down-to-earth and humble persona, to of course, all of his wonderful projects, and he recently left everyone in awe yet again with one of the greatest acceptance speeches in the history of the Academy Awards. Mark Mangini has changed the world of movie-making in more ways than imaginable, and has made the movie watching experience for everyone far more amazing with his excellent work as a phenomenal sound designer. The terrific Mark Mangini inspires everyone on a milli-second basis to follow their dreams and he has made a tremendous impact in the movie making world, but also in every day life in general. Together with his stunning and marvelous wife, Ann and his incredibly talented son, Rio – the Mangini family are all geniuses!
