Andrew Boulton AMPSFilm Sound Lecturer

Full Member / Fellow

Fellowship Citation

Andrew Boulton has a distinguished career record as a Production Sound Mixer, starting with the BBC Film Unit in Ealing in 1965 and later working freelance on major Feature Film and Television productions. He has a passion for cinema, demonstrated by his decision to buy, refurbish, and successfully operate a vintage cinema, the Palace Theatre in Long Eaton and then, in 1986, taking on the responsibility for introducing several of the very modern multiplex Showcase Cinemas to the UK. In 1989, he became a media consultant to the PA Consulting Group, a leading international management and IT consulting and technology firm.

In 1994, he made another career move to the National Film and Television School, designing, developing and running industry-renowned courses for Sound for Film and Television. His current role as Head of Sound at the National Film and Television School gives him an outstanding insight into how new entrants to our Industry should be trained.

Andrew has been a Member of the Association since 1998 and has served many years on Council, bringing a calm authority to the position of Chairman which he held for three years from 2004 to 2006. His industry knowledge and his expertise in training have been invaluable to the Association.

Patrick Heigham AMPSProduction Sound Mixer

Full Member / Fellow

In 1960, I joined the Technical Operations department of B.B.C. Television, remaining with them for
eight years, receiving extensive training in all aspects of Television Broadcast Operations. I specialised in Sound Engineering, which encompassed Microphone Boom Operation, T.V. Studio floor practice and Grams/Tape Operation. Responsibility for sound balance on LIVE transmissions of “Dr. Who”, “Grandstand” and “Blue Peter” was also undertaken.
In October 1968, an opportunity arose to work in the Cinema Feature Film industry, and pursued a career as a Freelance Technician in the Sound Department in various grades. The more notable ones are “Fiddler on the Roof” (American Academy ‘Oscar’ Award for Sound), “Alien” (the first one!), and two James Bond 007 films.
In later years, my initial background in Television proved useful with the move to electronic picture capture. I was able to offer a broad range of experience in Sound Recording for both Film and Video formats.
I also participated in seminars and training courses related to Stereo sound, run by The National Film & Television School and The Association of Motion Picture Sound, of which I have been a member since induction and served on the Council as Membership Secretary for 15 years.

Peter Musgrave AMPSSound Editor

Full Member / Fellow

Fellowship Citation

The Council of The Association of Motion Picture Sound are pleased to award a Fellowship of the Association to Peter Musgrave.

Prior to his recent retirement, Peter Musgrave had a long and distinguished career as a Sound Editor with numerous major credits to his name. He co-founded the Magnetic Effects Library that held all the sound effects from Columbia Pictures’ British productions, and later purchased Pinewood’s own library.

Peter attended the foundation meeting of AMPS but his close involvement with the GBFE, at the time, made him decide against becoming a founding member, joining a few months later. Elected to the AMPS Council in the early ’90s he served continuously, holding the post of Vice-chairman for three years.

This Fellowship has been awarded primarily in recognition of the contribution Peter has made to the work of the Council over those ten years. His attention to detail, clear thinking, points of order, and plain common sense, led many Council discussions to a sensible conclusion, whilst keeping everyone on their toes. In recent years he took on the additional tasks of arranging AMPS meetings and the screenings held outside of Pinewood.

His longest lasting contribution will be the meticulous work he undertook on revisions and amendments to the Constitution of AMPS, the most recent example being presented earlier this morning. These skills are rare and will be sorely missed following his decision to stand down from the Council.

For these reasons, and his commitment to AMPS, we award Peter Musgrave this Fellowship.

Lionel Strutt AMPSPost Production Supervisor

Full Member / Fellow

Fellowship Citation

The Council of the Association of Motion Picture Sound is pleased to award Fellowship of the Association to Lionel Strutt.

Lionel Strutt, Post-production Supervisor, is a Founder Member of the Association, being one of fifteen people elected in 1989 by a meeting of film sound personnel to form a Council to administer the affairs of the newly formed Association of Motion Picture Sound. From its inception he was a regular attender at Council, contributing enthusiastically to all matters concerning the Association.

In 1992 he took on the role of Secretary, continuing in that position until 1997, during which time he also offered London meeting facilities, helped with the fledgling Newsletter, played a key role in the Sustaining Membership programme, and raised the idea of an increase in Council membership to overcome the problem of inquorate meetings due to Councillors' work commitments.

In 1998 he became Treasurer, a position held until 2004 when, due to demands of a new business, he also resigned from the Council. His foresight into industry developments led to a significant reassessment of the future direction of AMPS and constitutional amendments to prepare the Association for such changes.

For his services to motion picture sound and fifteen years dedicated service to the well-being and growth of the Association, he is hereby awarded Fellowship of the Association of Motion Picture Sound.
