Soho post house The Mews has recruited a colourist and invested in new grading equipment in a bid to increase the amount of drama and features work it takes on.

Alex Gascoigne has joined the Soho-based firm from Pepper where he worked on Whitechapel for Carnival Films and Planet 51 for Sony Pictures.

Managing director Gareth Mullaney said: “We have a great visual effects department who have worked on a number of high end dramas such as Jonathan Creek, Waking the Dead, Silent Witness and Lark Rise to Candleford (pictured) and I think by offering more of a one-stop shop solution we will be able to offer a tailored package to clients.”

“With a brand new grading suite built around Digital Vision’s Film Master, I am looking forward to helping set up a department which can provide quality work across a range of genres, from commercials and documentaries through to drama and features” Gascoigne said.
