Post house Suite has expanded its grading department, hiring Lee Clappison as head of grading and installing a second grading suite running Da Vinci Resolve in addition to its dedicated Baselight suite.

Suite md Shelley Fox said: “We wanted to expand our grading potential and develop new markets. Lee, with his background in drama, comedy and features, is a brilliant addition to our team.

“He can switch from grading in Baselight to our new Da Vinci Resolve suite without batting an eyelid. He’s perfect for our expansion into new programming sectors.”

Newman Street based Suite is best known for its comedy work, with credits including Ricky Gervais’ After Life, White Gold and Sally4Ever.

Clappison has already graded Idris Elba’s In The Long Run for Sky, Strictly: The Professionals for BBC1 and Spencer and Vogue for E4.

Lee said: “I am delighted to be joining such a warm, creative company as Suite. Their expansion of the grading department, and willingness to embrace new technologies, coupled with their fabulous approach to work is a breath of fresh air.”
