The 'Arrival' sound crew - winners of the 4th annual AMPS Award for Excellence in Sound for a Feature Film - made a whistle stop in London for the BAFTAs. There was not enough time to organise a grand presentation event, but at short notice a group of AMPS members met Sylvain Bellemare, Claude La Haye, Bernard Gariépy Strobl in the Bassoon bar at the Corinthia Hotel. Our chairman Paul Davies was able to congratulate them in person and present the coveted bronze trophies. Bernard Gariépy Strobl, the Re- Recording Mixer, said "It's a pleasure and an honour to be recognised by this beautiful group." All the winners paid tribute to the other creative contributors in the team, and shared their collaborative relationship with the director. They were joined by Olivier Calvert, the Sound Designer for the ‘Alien-shell vessel’. The team were interviewed by Stuart Wilson and Laura Lovejoy which revealed some interesting insights into the original recording and post production of the excellent 'Arrival' soundtrack.
We raised a glass or two in celebration before our winners went off to BAFTA, where the voting membership obviously agreed with the AMPS choice, and they picked up their second award of the day. We congratulate them and wish them further success at the Oscars.
