A LANCASHIRE-based audio company is celebrating after its equipment was used for some of this year’s biggest Oscar winners.

AMS Neve in Burnley supplied their sound consoles to Parasite, which won the most Academy Awards, and was transported all the way to LiveTone Studios in South Korea to mix the audio for the film.

The film made history last week as the first non-English-language production to win Best Picture, and the first South Korean film to win the Best International Feature Film Category.

Liz Wilkinson, communications manager for AMS Neve, said: “We are very proud that the soundtracks and music of many of this year’s award winners were produced on equipment designed and made entirely in Burnley.

“Over the past few years it’s become a regular season for people around the town to ask us how we are faring in the Oscar stakes – and once again for 2020, it’s great news.”

AMS Neve mixing equipment also contributed to the success of Toy Story 4, which took home Best Animated Film, and Sam Mendes’ 1917, which won an Oscar for Sound Mixing.

The news marks several years of award triumphs for films using the company’s equipment, after AMS Neve equipment was used in all 59 Oscar-nominated films in 2013.

Last year, AMS Neve equipment was used to record and mix the song I’m Gonna Love Me Again from Rocketman, which won Elton John and Bernie Taupin an Oscar for Best Original Song.

Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody also scooped four Oscars, including for Best Sound Mixing, which was mixed at Twickenham Studios and recorded at the iconic Abbey Road using AMS Neve consoles.
