Black Mirror: USS Callister has been hailed by critics around the world as the best episode of the season. The story is a wild ride with plenty of thrills, tension, horror, and humour.
Congratulations to John Rodda AMPS, Matthew Skelding, Kenny Clark and Tim Cavagin for their worthy recognition by AMPS Members of an impressive soundtrack. We all know the sound is at least fifty percent responsible for the success of any drama (“seventy percent” according to Danny Boyle!).
AMPS recognises that a winning mix is the result of close collaboration among the members of talented teams. Our winners will each be asked for a list of contributing crew members who will be acknowledged with The Association’s Certificates of Merit.
USS Callister has already garnered a CAS Award, and is nominated in the BAFTA Television Craft Awards. We congratulate all involved with this award winning soundtrack and wish the team further success at BAFTA. We hope the insight shown by their sound professional peers in CAS and AMPS has guided the BAFTA voting membership.
This is Tim Cavagin’s second AMPS Award this year, as he picked up the Film Sound trophy for Baby Driver. Double congratulations to Tim and his team at Twickenham.
AMPS Television Awards are sponsored by TWICKENHAM FILM STUDIOS and GOLDCREST.
Throughout the year AMPS Voting Members suggested Television Dramas with notable soundtracks to form the list of Eligible Titles. This list was voted on to decide the five nominated dramas. The final ballot determined the winner. Trophies and Certificates will be presented at an AMPS Social event to be arranged in due course.
