The Academy Members Project KL to Kz

Pictured: Invited to join the Academy in 2005, Andy Koyama has been a sound mixer on action-driven blockbusters like 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and The Incredible Hulk. But Sound Mixing is about more than just explosions, as evidenced from his work in About A Boy, Meet The Parents, She’s Out Of My League, Zoolander and The Twilight Saga: New Moon. You can listen for Koyama’s most recent work in Iron Man 3, John Wick, Selma, Nightcrawler and Lone Survivor - where he received an Oscar nomination!
