  • Edward Scissorhands

    Edward Scissorhands

    Audio Mechanics was asked by 20th Century Fox to update the audio for a new Digital Cinema Package (DCP) being made for Tim Burton’s 1990 release, Edward Scissorhands. The original 35mm mag LCRS D-M-E stems were digitally captured (and preserved) then analog noise removed from each track and finally re-mastered to make the restored LCRS soundtrack. The result was well worth the effort as the presence of the dialogue and the hauntingly beautiful Danny Elfman score were markedly well defined.
