dock10 celebrates two RTS craft and design awards for editing

Dock10, the TV Studios, post-production and connectivity business based at the heart of MediaCityUK, received accolades at the RTS craft and design awards in London, for its post-production work on BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2014 (BBC Sport) and for editing work completed by editor Paulo Pandolpho on Cucumber, made by RED Production Company for Channel 4.

The RTS judges praised Paulo’s editing work saying: “The editing quite clearly was one of the stars of an incredibly brave piece of television. Outstanding visceral storytelling where the skill of the editor was key”.

dock10 has also just finished working with Red Productions on the second series of ITV1’s drama Prey and BBC Religion and Ethics on Blood and Gold: The Making of Spain (BBC Four).

BAFTA-nominated Prey, which stars Philip Glenister and Rosie Cavaliero and was filmed primarily on location in Manchester, had its picture and audio post-production for the (3x 60min) looked after by the in-house talent at dock10, whilst The Making of Spain (3x 60min) – which embarks on a fascinating journey to unlock 2,000 years of Spain’s history with Simon Sebag Montefiore, gave the dock10 team the full end-to-end post production, offline, baselight grade, online and dub.

Paul Austin, the Head of Post-Production for dock10 said: “The recent award wins are down to our amazing team and the facilities and services we offer here at dock10’.

He continued: ‘We were delighted to work with Red Productions and ITV on the second series of the gripping drama Prey and then the totally contrasting history series, the Story of Spain, with BBC Religion and Ethics for BBC Four. We have unrivalled in-house talent, state-of-the-art equipment and workflow expertise across all genres, and these fantastic shows demonstrate the fact we are building so much valuable experience across both drama and docs”.

The second series of Prey saw editor Johnny Rayner and director Lewis Arnold return to dock10, after previously editing E4 series Banana at the facility. The audio was mixed by head of audio, Mark Briscoe, whose aim was to create a gritty yet authentic soundscape.

Blood and Gold: The Making of Spain was graded by Colourist Jamie Perry and the audio mixed by Mike Stewart. The Grade was mainly used for enhancing and bringing to life the fantastic Bright colours and sunny skies of Spain and the energetic festivals which were shot full of light. The sound was built up to give an energetic and dramatic feel to complement the beautifully crafted composed music.

Prey, first of three eps airs on ITV at 9pm on the 9th December

Blood and Gold: The Making of Spain airs on BBC Four, (3 x episodes) starting 8th December at 9pm
