Narduzzo has bought a Digital Vision Nucoda Film Master X17 from Rocket, with which the company will continue to be closely associated. Narduzzo said: “Pinewood is working on a lot more TV work now which will continue to form the core of my business, but I'm keen to expand into feature films.”
Root6 will integrate the grading system with Pinewood's facility, allowing the company to send pictures down the wire to Rocket. The new facility will open on Saturday 1 November.
Pinewood head of sales for post Maria Walker said: “We are trying to ensure that we can offer the same standards as Soho-based facilities from outside the M25 and Vince has a great reputation.”
Meanwhile, Rocket has completed its move to Frith Street and will house part of Narduzzo Too at the premises.
Narduzzo himself will be primarily based at Pinewood but will travel to Rocket's new Frith Street premises when necessary.
The companies are working together on various projects including the second series of the BBC's hit drama serial Lark Rise to Candleford and Kindle Entertainment's feature-length adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson's best-selling novel Dustbin Baby for BBC1.
