Foss joins Brighton-based indie to oversee inhouse post


Brighton-based indie Back2back Productions has named Carla Foss as its new head of post production.

Foss joins Back2back from Ricochet Television, where she started her career and was promoted to head of post production operations in 2017 

In her new role, Foss will oversee Back2back’s in-house post production department. Working alongside head of creative post-production Sharman Finn and a three-person edit-assistant team, Foss will oversee Back2back’s nine off-line suites, two online suites, and in-house GFX and music facilities.

Foss’ brief also includes overseeing the output of Back2back Audio, its new purpose-designed audio facility that opened in February. Back2back Audio is run by dubbing mixer and sound designer Wayne Urquhart, and is primarily used to service Back2back’s output but also offers serviced audio packages to local indies and London-based producers looking to expand into the regions.

Foss’ appointment comes as the total number of hours to be delivered by Back2back over the next 12 months rises to almost 80.

David Notman-Watt, back2back’s founder and managing director, said: “Carla joins Back2back at a critical time in our continued growth. Our extensive post production facilities have played a key part in ensuring that we’re nimble, agile and reactive — talents that are invaluable when pulling together multiple financing partners in order to get projects greenlit. Carla’s input and experience will ensure this continues as Back2back expands to the next level.”
