David Macmillan to Be Honored by Cinema Audio Society
HollywoodReporter.com reports that production mixer David Macmillan will be honored by the Cinema Audio Society at its 51st CAS Awards, on Feb. 14, with the organization’s highest accolade, the CAS Career Achievement Award.

MacMillan has won three Oscars for best sound — for 1983’s The Right Stuff, 1994’s Speed and 1995’s Apollo 13.
“David represents the high standards we all aspire to, as a sound mixer, a mentor and an educator,” said CAS president David E. Fluhr in announcing Macmillan’s selection by the CAS board of directors. “David received the first of his Oscars 30 years ago — as a mixer he, obviously, has the right stuff!”
