Nominations for the 68th annual Emmy Awards were announced on July 14. The Motion Picture Editors Guild congratulates all of the nominees in the post-production categories. The awards for those categories will be announced at the Creative Arts Awards and Ball, which takes place on two consecutive nights — September 10 and 11 — at the Microsoft Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, and will air on ABC-TV on Saturday, September 17 — the night before the Primetime Emmy Awards. Leslie Bloome (pictured) earned two nominations in the Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program category — as a sound editor on "Cartel Land," and as a Foley artist on the "Lack of Humility" episode of "Making a "Murderer."

Sometimes music editors, more so than composers, find themselves working consistently on similar kinds of movies at different times during their careers. Rarely, however, does a music editor work on projects of such vastly different genres within a short time as Brian Bulman (pictured) found himself doing recently. The hugely diverse results of his efforts will be seen in the August release of two movies — the R-rated potty-mouthed animated comedy, 'Sausage Party,' and the third theatrical feature adaptation of Lew Wallace’s Biblical epic, 'Ben-Hur.'

"Printing huge color backgrounds was very challenging. The light-sensitive material called Kodak Duratrans was 6 feet wide by 100 feet long, and a 40 by 100 feet backdrop required printing in panels that were seamed together after processing. The raw, light-sensitive material had to be handled in total darkness, and color matching all the panels precisely at the seaming point required extensive testing and using all the tricks in the book to achieve."
