UK: The 2007 BAFTA Film Awards - held in London on Sunday night - saw recognition for the latest James Bond film, Casino Royale, in the category of Best Sound. The winning team included two of the driving forces behind sound facility Soundelux London - Eddy Joseph and Martin Cantwell.

Creative director Eddy Joseph recalled his time on the project, which is widely felt to have revitalised the 007 franchise: "Director Martin Campbell's brief to us was to make the sound a raw, transitional experience for the audience. So instead of creating a dense, multilayered sound design for the film, the soundscape is made up of many carefully chosen individual elements that are based on the scene and the setting. You get a cleaner sounding film that really tells the story."

Joseph, in particular, is no stranger to BAFTA success, having been nominated on five previous occasions. He picked up an award in 1983 for sound editing Pink Floyd The Wall.

This year, his work with Soundelux colleague Oliver Tarney on Paul Greengrass' 9/11 drama, United 93, saw him pick up a second BAFTA nomination for Best Sound.

Other films nominated in the Best Sound category this year included Babel, Pan's Labyrinth and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
