    Profile:Chris Burdon/Sound Mixer/Oscar Nom/Captain Phillips/Philomena

    in Movies

    Re-recording mixer Chris Burdon was recently nominated for an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for his Sound Mixing work on the Paul Greengrass directed film, Captain Phillips. In recent years he has worked on numerous high profile and critically acclaimed flms. His many credits include Corpse Bride, Kick-Ass, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Anna Karenina, The Counselor and Philomena to name but a few. It was during his Television mixing in the early nineties that Chris was able to begin making strong contacts on the Feature Film side of the industry. The De Lane Lea studios contained both Television and Feature mixing rooms which made it the perfect environment to move freely between many different projects. Sound editorial team Phaze UK, who had previously worked on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch for Producer Matthew Vaughn, became strong allies which led to an extremely long and successful relationship with Matthew Vaughn in his role as Film director. One early film Chris mixed as part of that team was Layer Cake directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Daniel Craig. In recent years Chris has concentrated mainly on mixing Feature Films and the recent acquisition of De Lane Lea by Warner Bros has increased the range of opportunities available to him. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com  or Follow us on Twitter @123Film

    Tony DeMarco: Irish fiddler. If that sounds slightly off, you have only to listen to the music on this recording to be cured of any preconceptions about the importance of ethnic purity in traditional music. There may have been a time when Irish music in New York City was played exclusively by Irish immigrants and their offspring, while their Italian neighbors strummed mandolins and sang opera. But the Big Apple really is a melting pot, at least for some of its disparate immigrant elements. Before World War II it really wasn’t very common for Italian and Irish Americans to marry each other. By the 1950s, however, this kind of ethnic mixing was fairly normal in Tony’s native Brooklyn, where the Italians and Irish lived side by side and attended the same parish churches.

    Tony was born on May 20, 1955, the second of three children raised in East Flatbush by Paul DeMarco and his wife, the former Patricia Dempsey. Paul, a grandson of Italian immigrants, was a teenage lightweight boxing star who turned down an offer to turn pro and work with lightweight champ Paddy “Billygoat” DeMarco in order to pursue a more conventional career on Wall Street. Tony’s maternal grandfather Jimmy Dempsey was a New York City cop and a son of Irish immigrants who married Philomena “Minnie” Fenimore, one of several Italian-American siblings who married into Brooklyn Irish families.

    Musical ability runs on both sides of Tony’s family. During the Prohibition years, Minnie Dempsey’s Italian immigrant father ran a speakeasy in East New York, where he played the piano and mandolin. Tony’s paternal uncle Louie DeMarco was a singer who performed with 1950s doo-wop groups, including “Dickie Dell and the Ding Dongs.”
