Inside the booth, scoring mixer Michael Perfitt made sure everything sounded great, and he was joined at the console by orchestrator Amie Doherty and additional music composer Perrine Virgile, who would give feedback to Russo out on the stage. Also in the booth were scoring assistant/score tech Tracie Turnbull, scoring assistant Caleb Hsu, scoring intern Sandy Chen, and music editor Lodge Worster.
