The renowned winner of numerous awards will collect the Motion Picture Editors Guild’s (MPEG) Fellowship and Service Award at a ceremony on Oct 15 in Los Angeles.
The Fellowship and Service Award was established five years ago by the Guild “to recognize an individual who has demonstrated professionalism, collaboration, mentorship, generosity of spirit and a commitment to the labor movement.”
“Don Hall’s impressive career as a sound editor spans almost 60 years, and throughout it, he has exemplified a tireless work ethic and has always led by example,” MPEG president Danny Cahn said. “On behalf of the Guild’s Board of Directors, I am extremely proud to announce that he is the 2011 recipient of our Fellowship and Service Award – Don is the very embodiment of the qualities that the award honors.”
Previous recipients include Donn Cambern, Dede Allen, Carol Littleton and IATSE International President Emeritus Thomas C Short.
The ceremony will be held in Los Angeles at a location to be announced later this summer. The award used to be presented during the Guild’s annual board installation dinner but this year will take place as a stand-alone event.
Hall’s credits include Patton, The French Connection, Towering Inferno, Young Frankenstein, M*A*S*H, Land Of The Giants, Lost In Space, Single White Female, The Loveboat, Charlie’s Angels and Barnaby Jones.
