The Great Pottery Throw Down

Love Productions for BBC 2

“Full post production for the 6 x 60 minute pottery series. The show puts a new spin on the pottery wheel! With the friendly encouragement of Sara Cox, contestants are put through their paces each week by judges Kate Malone and Keith Brymer Jones, as they attempt create their own masterpieces in order to be crowned the top home potter. It was graded in Baselight, where colourist Nick Adams paid homage to BBC’s 1950’s and 60’s black and white interlude of a potter’s wheel with the added application of colour fragments to give it a modern twist. Dubbing Mixer Nerys Richards carried out the mix, which was quite a challenge due to a variety of noisy locations and multiple contributors. The WLM and X-noise reduction plug ins on Pro Tools were absolutely essential. The overall feel of the show was enhanced by wonderfully quirky retro music.”
