Brief Pre- and post-production on a 6 x 60-minute factual show exploring the latest styles in interior design.

How it was done Picture post was completed on Avid Symphony using Boris and Sapphire plug-ins. The finishing team of Franz Ketterer, Simon Bland and Alexis Moffatt gave the show a rich, warm feel, particularly in the main barn, where most of the ‘makes’ were filmed. Extensive noise reduction was required on some scenes. For the audio, as the source recordings were ‘clean’ it meant that the atmos, music and effects could be fitted easily around each episode. The mix was tweaked to match the strong visual style, with music used to emphasise the start and end of sections. Pre and final mixes were done by Paul Donovan and Andy Devine, with sound design completed by George Fry.
