Evolutions opens new facilities in Primrose Hill
Evolutions is delighted to announce a new facility based in Shine TV’s production offices in Gloucester Avenue, Primrose Hill.
Comprising 20 Avid offline suites over 4,000 square feet, the facility, which opens for business on 8th May, will be home to some of Shine TV’s most complex productions such as Hunted and The Island for Channel 4 and the new entertainment show for Sky One, Loot, amongst many others.
The investment of over £750,000 is part of a new output deal between Shine TV and Evolutions. It includes Avid offline suites, a purpose built MCR area and various client break out areas. The facility is designed by Owen Tyler, Technical Director, with the aim of mirroring the look and feel of Evolutions’ other buildings. It will be connected by dark fibre to Evolutions’ Soho offices, enabling complex media ingest and management to be handled remotely by Evolutions’ 24/7 edit support team. Final post will be carried out by Evolutions’ top creative team in Soho.
Evolutions will be employing a team of 6 people to run the facility in Primrose Hill, supported by the Soho team at all times.
Alan Williams, Shine TV’s Director of Production said ‘We are delighted to forge this new relationship and bring Soho post production service levels and expertise under our roof here. We are very happy to be able to collaborate closely with such a fantastic team and provide our productions with the best level of post support within our own offices.’
Simon Kanjee, Evolutions’ MD said ‘This is a very exciting opportunity not only to work on some excellent and challenging programmes, but also to change the post model somewhat. Technology now enables us to provide Soho quality facilities anywhere in London. We can expand our business by creating new close relationships with our clients, and expect to replicate this model elsewhere.’
