The Council of the Association of Motion Picture Sound is pleased to award Fellowship of the Association to Ivan Sharrock.
Ivan has enjoyed a career in Sound spanning some 50 years. In the early years at Alan King Associates, he honed his skills under the difficult conditions of documentary sound recording. In the eighties, Ivan became one of the UK’s most internationally sought after Production Sound Mixers. Surviving Stanley Kubrick on ‘The Shining’, he went on to win the Oscar for ‘The Last Emperor’ and a BAFTA for ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’.
His subsequent credits include such notable films as ‘Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes’, ‘The English Patient’, ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’, ‘U-571’, ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘Cold Mountain’, ‘The Da Vinci Code’, ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and a host of others. Among those titles he garnered three more Oscar Nominations, two CAS Nominations and five BAFTA Nominations.
Ivan has served on Council; he has been a consistently strong supporter of AMPS and a respected contributor since he joined at the beginning.
In recognition of his lifetime achievements in the Craft of Sound, and his service to AMPS, Ivan is awarded Fellowship of The Association.
