On September 26, 2017, we suddenly and unexpectedly lost Paul Rodriguez who was an “Ambassador” of our Sound Community. Paul was a current MPSE Board Member and a previous member of the CAS Board and will be missed by both organizations and the community as a whole.
“He was an amazing man who gave so much to everybody that had an opportunity to know him,” said MPSE president Tom McCarthy. “Paul was an ambassador to the art of sound throughout all aspects of entertainment worldwide. He played an integral role within the board of the MPSE for many years. The success of our organization was supported by his continued efforts to recognize the importance of sound to filmmakers and the studios. Paul has left us with great memories and helped the success of many of those within the MPSE and the Cinema Audio Society as well as sound artists outside of these two organizations. There are so many great and amazing things that Paul did throughout his career and he will be remembered for them as well as the energy, wisdom and true dedication he gave to the sound industry.”
Said Cinema Audio Society president Mark Ulano: “A friend and major contributor to the professional film sound community has passed unexpectedly. Paul Rodriguez’s energy, mentoring and enthusiasm will be sorely missed as he was always there as a go-to-guy. His capacity for collaboration and generosity seemed boundless. We at the Cinema Audio Society send our heartfelt condolences to his family and the larger community to which he has so effectively participated as a creative force and a leader. He will be greatly missed.
For over 30 years, Rodriguez remained an active member of the professional sound community. In addition to serving in executive, sales, and creative capacities at Todd-AO/Soundelux, Wilshire Stages, 4MC, and EFX Systems, he co-owned the Eagle Eye Film Company, a supplier of picture editing systems.
