SOUND EXCELLENCE HONOURED AT AMPS AWARDS CEREMONY 2022
LONDON, 3rd September 2022:
The Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS) honoured its annual awards winners at a ceremony which was held on Saturday 3rd September at The University of Greenwich. “A Very British Scandal” scooped the Excellence in Sound for a Television Drama accolade and “The Beatles: Get Back” received Excellence in Sound for a Factual Film. Excellence in a Production Audio Product went to the Sound Devices A20 Radio Microphone System and Excellence in a Post-Production Audio Product was awarded to Sound Radix for Auto-Align Post 2.
A new category was introduced this year for Outstanding Contribution to Film Sound. The worthy recipient was Graham V Hartstone AMPS FBKS, honoured not only for his spectacular career but also his remarkable support of AMPS which extends unbroken from the first ever meeting of the Association to the present day. Graham’s credit list is extraordinary – “Aliens”, “Blade Runner”, “Superman” and “Pink Floyd: The Wall” all earned him award recognition at the very highest levels, but added to that are fifteen James Bond films and countless other classic movies. Graham continues to help and inspire the next generation giving talks and tutoring across the World as well as at the UK’s National Film and Television School (NFTS).
The winning sound team from “A Very British Scandal” includes Dylan Voigt, Grant Studart, Natasha Haycocks, Michele Woods, Alastair Sirkett and Howard Bargroff. The winning sound talent line-up from “The Beatles: Get Back” includes Brent Burge, Michael Hedges and Martin Kwok.
Commenting on their win the Marketing Manager for Sound Radix, Daniel Buck, said “We were thrilled when we read the news. Our entire team is happy that Auto-Align Post 2 won the Award for Excellence in a Post-Production Hardware or Software Audio Product. We'd like to thank all AMPS members for their vote of support.”
AMPS Chair Andrew Wilson hosted the event and said “ We were delighted to welcome AMPS members and friends to our annual Awards event. The support we receive from our sponsors plus the help we get from the University of Greenwich makes this one of the highlights of the AMPS year. We were especially pleased to be joined by some of our friends from the AMPS chosen charity “Hearing Dogs for the Deaf” and very generous donations from some of our Sustaining Members went towards a fundraising raffle with all the proceeds going to Hearing Dogs. The event was a great success, confirming the continued growth of what has become one of the most prestigious sound awards in the calendar.”
The AMPS Awards are sponsored by Dolby Laboratories, Pinewood Studios Group, Sennheiser and Bubblebee Industries.
