Soho post-production house Goldcrest Post, location recording specialist Red TX and acclaimed recording engineer Toby Alington are among the finalists who have been twice nominated in the Pro Sound Awards shortlist, specifically in the Broadcast Audio categories.
The winners – chosen by an independent panel of judges –will be announced at the first Pro Sound Awards event, to be held at the Ministry of Sound in London on Thursday 19 September. The list of finalists was announced last week.
Red TX tussles for two titles, appearing on the Broadcast Event shortlist for the recent Sound of Change Live concert, and in the Broadcast Team of the Year group for Strictly Come Dancing at Wembley Arena last November.
Goldcrest Post features in the Broadcast Facility category for work on many high-profile TV projects this year, while head of Goldcrest Foley, Julien Pirrie, rockets into the final four of the Rising Star constellation.
As well as a nomination for Studio Engineer of the Year, Richmond Studios Productions’ Toby Alington features as a Broadcast Audio Team of the Year finalist for his work with the BRIT Awards crew.
Tileyard Studios are nominated for a Permanent Installation award, while one of its residents, Mark Ronson, is up a finalist for Recording Production of the Year. And Ed Ferguson of the National Theatre can claim to be associated with two nominations also: the L-Acoustics refit of the Olivier, and playing a major part in the NTLive broadcasts undertaken by Conrad Fletcher and the Mixbus group (nominated for Broadcast Team of the Year).
L-Acoustics, Sennheiser and DiGiCo also feature multiple times in the final sections.
