HPA Awards Show Ticket Sales Open
Honors will be given in 12 craft categories including Color Grading, Editing, Sound, and Compositing for feature film, television and commercials. Special awards will be presented to Cinnafilm, Crossroads Systems, Dolby Laboratories, and Sony Electronics - winners of the Engineering Excellence Award, sponsored by NAB Show. Gradient Interactive will receive the HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production. This year, the prestigious Charles S. Swartz Award, which recognizes broad and lasting contributions that have advanced and provided a unique purpose to the field of Post Production, will be given to Ray Dolby, Founder of Dolby Laboratories.
Tickets for the HPA Awards consistently sell out, and early purchase is highly recommended. The gala evening is an engaging and community centered event, bringing out the entire post production community. The evening begins with a wine and cheese reception, continues into the 90 minute awards show, and ends with a cocktail party. The HPA Awards return for their seventh year to the Skirball Cultural Center.
