The Council of the Association of Motion Picture Sound is pleased to award Fellowship of the Association to Chris Roberts.
Chris began his sound career in radio, producing short feature items for BBC local stations, Radio 4, Radio 5 and the COI.
In 1997, after two years working as a Sound Assistant in a small independent post-production department, Chris was employed by BSkyB as a Dubbing Mixer, recording and mixing on-air trailers, programme inserts, and live sports commentaries.
Following BSkyB, Chris then worked as a Foley Recordist at Magmasters in Soho, where he was also able to develop his skills as an ADR recordist and mixer, contributing to many major feature films.
In 2000 Magmasters became part of the company that evolved into Ascent Media. As this new facility developed, Chris would find himself more involved with the sound editing process, working mostly on television drama and feature films. In 2009 he was promoted to the position of Sound Editorial Supervisor and in 2012 he received the RTS Award for Best Sound ~ Drama, for his innovative work on ‘White Heat’.
Chris has been a deeply involved Member of the Association and AMPS Council for many years, has served a three-year term as Chairman and also chaired the web committee. He has brought a great deal of necessary process, structure and authority to Council. His enthusiasm for the Association extends to coordinating many events, particularly the very popular monthly Soho gatherings for our Members and others from the wider industry.
In recognition of his achievements for AMPS Chris is awarded Fellowship of The Association.
