Post-house deal will enable the indie to move into feature film picture and sound finishing, VFX and delivery
The Late Late Show with James Corden producer Fulwell 73 is expanding its post-production operations with the acquisition of London-based facility Creativity Media.
The post-house previously worked on Fulwell’s Netflix doc The Class of ’92 and the deal enable the indie to move into feature film picture and sound finishing, VFX and delivery. Fulwell already has an internal post-production facility at its London office, primarily focused on TV.
Creativity co-founders Richard Kondal and Patrick Fischer will stay on as co-managing directors and oversee a newly combined team. Creativity Media will continue to work on third party projects and will operate under its own banner for now.
“Bringing Creativity Media into Fulwell will mean we can boost our in-house postproduction team and take it to the next level, increasing our commercial and creative output as we continue to grow,” said Leo Pearlman, partner at Fulwell 73.
The deal follows a £45m investment raised by Fulwell in September last year by House Of Cards owner Valence Media.
Creativity Media has provided post services to 95 films and television shows including McQueen, I am Not A Witch, Under The Shadow and 47 Meters Down.
It also operates a finance arm, Creativity Capital, which will continue to invest in projects via asset-backed lending.
