Full Member / Fellow
I have been dedicated to post-production sound for TV broadcast and Feature films for over four decades. During that time I have been a founder, designer and/or Director of various post-production facilities including Athos TV and Film Facilities, Glentham Studios, Arena Digital, The Sound Designers, and Future Post (now Halo) in Noel Street. At the same times I have maintained a practical involvement with audio post and have worked with digital systems since the early 1990s.
My career has included over 20 years as mixer/sound designer for Aardman’s classic animation Morph, work for BBC Light Entertainment from Dad’s Army to One Foot in the Grave, numerous documentaries, and British feature films from Last Orders with Michael Caine to British rapper Plan B’s Ill Manors.
A Fellow of AMPS, I have served as Chairman three times, from 1998-2001, 2007-2010, 2012-2014 and led AMPS’ campaign work with UK Screen on issues such as managed migration.
I am committed to improving skills for the industry, supporting young people and developing new talent. I have lectured at the National Film School, worked on numerous student films, and advised on the revision of the national Sound Standards and with Skillset on developing training schemes for the industry.
I am passionate about promoting our post-production and production expertise throughout the UK and internationally. At this time of enhanced opportunity as well as intense international competition I believe it is vital that sound production and post-production practitioners continue to play their part in supporting and developing the British film and television industry.
The Council of the Association of Motion Picture Sound is pleased to award Fellowship of the Association to Peter Hodges.
Peter started work at Stanley Schofield Productions, then moved to Athos Films as Dubbing Mixer.
In the early 80s he joined a new company called Glentham Studios in Barnes, where his calm and friendly personality in their dubbing theatre was much valued.
Later, Peter formed Sound Designers based in Soho, mixing TV programmes and Feature work that was sourced from World Wide Sound and Anvil Denham.
Currently working as a freelance Re-Recording Mixer, Peter joined AMPS in 1994 and was elected to the Council in 1996, quickly undertaking the office of Chairman from 1998-2001 then Hon. Secretary until 2007.
Re-election to the Council from 2007 to 2009 led to his appointment as Chairman for a second term, in which position his conscientiousness, unfailing courtesy and calm authority ensured that the business of the Association was smoothly conducted for the monthly Council meetings and AGMs.
For his long time consistent services to the Association, Peter Hodges is made a Fellow of AMPS.
