AMPS members win BAFTA Sound awards

By Anna Bertmark on Tuesday, 15th May 2012

The sound team behind Sherlock (A Scandal in Belgravia), which included John Mooney (production sound mixer), Howard Bargroff (dubbing mixer) and Doug Sinclair (supervising sound editor) won the award for best sound for fiction. Kate Hopkins (dubbing editor) and her team won the award for best sound for factual for Frozen Planet (To The Ends Of The Earth). Kate previously won an Emmy for her work on Blue Planet in 2007.

AMPS members were also among the sound award nominees. Rudi Buckle (production sound mixer) was nominated for The Hour, and Richard Dyer (sound recordist) and Paul Hamblin (sound re-recording mixer) for Great Expectations.

On winning the award, Howard Bargroff said: “This is the first award I’ve won and I hadn't prepared anything to say, but it was a great project to work on, the original material recorded by John was excellent and the script, performances, editing and music (recorded at AIR) all contributed to the creation of a special final sound track. There were three episode in the series and they were all of the same high quality and a joy to work on.”

Kate Hopkins also said: “It was a fantastic night and wonderful to get a BAFTA to take home to Bristol. Frozen Planet was a great series to work on. The challenge was to give the series a sound track that was detailed and when needed, big and punchy. Hopefully we achieved that.”

Chris Roberts, Chairman of AMPS, added: "It's fantastic to see so many of the Association's members recognised by BAFTA in this year's television craft awards. It really shows just how much talent we have in the UK producing such great television soundtracks."
