The Cinema Audio Society was formed in 1964 for the purpose of sharing information with Sound Professionals in the Motion Picture and Television Industry. CAS has seven (7) categories of membership: Active (Full), Associate, Career Achievement, Honorary, Student, Retired and Corporate Members.
Active Members are Mixers (Production and Post Production, Film and Video) who work on Feature Films, Television, and Commercials, as well as Mixers who specialize in Music Scoring, Video Post Sweetening, A.D.R. and Foley. Associate Members are Sound Specialists, such as Sound Editors, Technicians, Recordists, and Microphone Boom Operators. Corporate Membership is open to companies in the Audio and Video Fields.
The CAS holds educational meetings throughout the year on topics of interest to those in our industry. In addition, each year the CAS hosts its Awards to bestow the CAS Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for both Feature Films and Television, as well as to honor Academy Award Nominees and Emmy Award Winners for Best Sound.
