Soundfirm Founder and CEO, Roger Savage, has been awarded the ‘John Howie Award for Outstanding Leadership, Achievement and Service to the Victorian Screen Industry’ at the Film Victoria Screen Industry Awards.
Roger’s career spans in excess of 45 years: moving to Australia from England in 1964, he engineered some of the most important Australian popular music recordings of the period and, concentrating on film sound tracks and post production in the early 1970’s, some of the country’s most celebrated films.
Roger has always been on the cutting edge of technology, and has consistently driven innovation in the way film soundtracks have been created and delivered. After 30 years in Port Melbourne’s Crockford Street, Roger has recently moved Soundfirm’s facility in Melbourne to a purpose built warehouse space on Fennell Street, at the same time investing in projects and technologies (including Dolby’s Atmos) for the benefit of the next generation of film-makers.
Congrats on this much deserved accolade!
