Spotlight on...Core Post

2 August 2016

Core Post is located in Salford at MediaCity and is a “boutique” style Post House. Trading for three years, one of their first major projects was “Peter Kay’s Car Share”, for which Core won the RTS North West award for “Best Post Production”.

Following on from the fantastic success of Series 1, Series 2 is now in Post Production and promises to be better than ever. This year Core Post are even closer to the project, having housed the full production, cast and crew from the outset! From a Post Production perspective the series will include a lot of the same challenges as last year, including hidden VFX and edit techniques to keep the journey consistent, but there are also a few new ones as some of the boundaries are being pushed for the second series.

Core Post are also anticipating more London based productions coming to the North West; they are currently working on a series for BBC2 from a London based company, with the offline split between Core & a London facility. Core will handle and ingest all the media, half of which is then sent to the post house in London, this will be sent back once the edit is completed and all the final post will be completed at Core, who are very optimistic that more of this work will come their way. 
Along with new productions Core Post have a number of repeat series coming back to them. The CBBC drama “4 O’Clock Club” is back for Series 6 and they currently have three edit suites on location along with a temporary ADR/recording studio to record the vocals for the Raps and ADR as required.

Additionally Core Post also have “Sister Rita” for BBC Current Affairs back for a second series and Dengineers for CBBC back for Series 2.
One of the attractions of going to Core is their abundance of flexible office space within the building (including parking), so there is ample production space for companies in need of a northern base during the pre/production stage. Core Post have hosted several companies in the past few years and it has been a great success for them and the clients.
