The 18th Australian Screen Sound Guild Awards were held on Sunday 23 November at The Establishment Hotel Ballroom in George Street, Sydney.
130 people attended, making it the biggest crowd the ASSG has ever had at the Awards.
Thank you to all the members and friends who attended – it turned out to be a fantastic event. We would especially like to thank those ASSG members who travelled from WA, SA and Victoria.
The Syd Butterworth Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to Lloyd Carrick. ASSG president Doron Kippen presented the award to Lloyd, praising his work which has spanned 48 years. Lloyd has worked on such films as Mad Max 2 and 3, Heatwave, The Lighthorsemen and Dead Calm. Lloyd received a standing ovation from the entire room.
The Greg Bell Student Encouragement Award was given to Callum Hedemann, a recent AFTRS graduate.
This year the ASSG honoured the late Andrew Plain by naming the Award for Best Film Sound Design after him. Andrew tragically passed away at the end of last year, not long after the 2013 ASSG Awards were held.
The ASSG Committee would like congratulate all the winners and nominees!
