Mixing in Auro 11.1 exceeded expectations
“This is the first movie where we have started postproduction using the Auro 11.1 sound format from premix through to final mix.

‘The Croods’, written and directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco, tells the story of the world’s first family road trip. When their cave is destroyed, the Crood family must embark on a comedy adventure into strange and spectacular territory in search of a new home.

With Guy's help the Croods conquer their fear of the outside world and discover that they have exactly what it takes to survive – each other.
