Heard City Mixes Saulnier’s ‘Blue Ruin’ for Cannes

On the heels of mixing the powerful documentary In God We Trust and the feature film Lily for their Tribeca Film Festival debuts, Heard City Mixer Cory Melious has collaborated with Director Jeremy Saulnier on a stirring feature film that premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Blue Ruin is the tale of a mysterious beach bum who performs a botched act of vengeance in an effort to stand up for his estranged family. Saulnier approached Melious with the incredible task of creating a mix and complete sound design in just two weeks. Heard City’s elaborate production pipeline was equal to the task, systematically working its way through the mix and edit.

“I was instantly captivated when Jeremy sent me a screener of the film,” noted Melious. “While I knew the production schedule was tight, I was confident Heard City could handle it, and I knew I wanted to be part of this project.” After premiering to enthusiastic response, Blue Ruin was promptly acquired by RADiUS-TWC, which called the film “one of the most exceptional discoveries [in] years.
