Andrew Plain Memorial Fund

The Australian Screen Sound Guild (ASSG) has launched The Andrew Plain Memorial Fund in memory of Andrew’s passion for sound and education

To honour Andrew’s lifetime contribution to the Australian film industry and his dedication to young people working in, and studying, motion picture sound, the Australian Screen Sound Guild has established ‘The Andrew Plain Memorial Fund’.

This fund will provide an annual award to an Australian student, or practitioner, seeking to further their education in screen sound.

The Andrew Plain Memorial Fund will continue to remember Andrew, recognise excellence and encourage innovation in our industry.

“The more we learn about sound, the more we understand the magic and seemingly infinite possibilities it brings to screen production.”

ASSG sincerely thanks those who have contributed

Sound Supervisor Andrew Plain was a giant in the Australian film industry, not because he stood six and a half feet tall (2m) and towered over everyone, but due to the depth of creativity he brought to every project.
