Amber Technology announces the passing of long serving employee
It is with tremendous sadness that Amber Technology advises one of its long serving employees, Julius Chan, recently passed away.
Julius joined Amber Technology in May 2004 as a sales engineer specialist for the audio products, broadcast and professional segment. He was responsible for sales and customer support for major broadcasters, high-end-post production facilities and music studio customer base.
Amber Technology managing director, Peter Amos, commented: “We are all shocked and saddened by this news. Julius was a much-loved member of the Amber Technology team, and he will be sadly missed by all of us as well as the many people he has worked with in the film, television and broadcast industry.
“From the Board, management and staff of Amber Technology, we extend our deepest sympathies to Julius’ family and friends,” continued Mr. Amos.
Over the course of his career, Julius was involved with sound editing and supervision duties, installation of studios and edit suites, product development, beta testing, and providing local and overseas tertiary students with lectures on sound editing, craft and tools.
Prior to joining Amber Technology, Julius worked as a sound engineer on an illustrious list of international and Australian films including Happy Feet, Strictly Ballroom and Babe. In 2001, Julius was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to Australian society and Australian film production. Julius had also been recognised with award nominations and wins from The Australian Film Institute, Australian Screen Sound Guild, IF Awards and Motion Picture Sound Editors (USA) Golden Reels.
Most recently, Julius was collaborating with Nigel Westlake on the Babe: Pig in the Symphony series, touring Australia in 2015 and 2016. In his home studio, Julius reworked the original sound mix enabling it to be performed as a film screening with a live symphony orchestra.
