DCD Media has acquired the brand, assets and senior management of post facility Sequence.

The London-based post house was put into voluntary liquidation at the start of February after it ran into financial difficulties at the end of last year.

Sequence founder Ben Foakes said the business had “lacked capital investment and business support”.

He said: “Despite our recent circumstances, we are very pleased to have been recognised by such an established group for our quality of work.”

Recently established company DCD Post Production Ltd will trade as Sequence, Foakes said, “to ensure the smoothest transition possible back into work”.

DCD Media chief executive David Green said the deal would boost the independent production and distribution group’s in-house capabilities and “deliver added benefit across the group’s production operations”.

The group’s production companies include September, Prospect, Matchlight, Rize USA, Westpark Pictures and DCD Pictures.

Sequence was set up in 2004. In 2006, it opened a facility at Pinewood Studios. Sequence moved to its current Fitzrovia base in 2010.
