Production company ORTV has set up an independent post business in the old Resolution premises on D'Arblay Street, Soho.

The as-yet-unnamed venture will comprise 14 suites and be run by ex-Frontier Post managing director Neil Hatton.

It has been funded by the founder and chairman of ORTV Abdul Rahman Al Rashed. ORTV is based in Portland Mews close to the new post company.

The company has struck a deal with the Resolution administrators for the company's kit, which includes a DS Nitris, a Symphony Nitris, a Smoke, a Pogle and three audio suites, one of which has a 5.1 Icon Console.

The new company also has a lease on the premises which are still owned by the family of the former managing director of the now-defunct Resolution, Mike Saunders.

Between 25% and 30% of the company's work is likely to be from ORTV, which produces long-form documentaries, often with a Middle East focus, but Hatton said: “The company will retain offline facilities as part of the work for ORTV but will focus on finishing. It will particularly look to short-form such as promos and corporate work.”

The company is being run initially by three skeleton staff, but is looking to recruit a team
of 16. Hatton said: “A lot of good people have been displaced recently. It is a good time to recruit.”

The company is currently open for business and can be contacted via ORTV.
