Gabriel started off working in the computer games industry as a Sound Designer, and from there moved over to work in audio post production. After several years gaining a wider knowledge of post-production he became a Project Manager within the industry, which has led onto his current role as General Manager at Evolutions’ Bristol facility. He was instrumental in setting up the systems and staff of the new operation back in 2013, and now manages the day to day running of the business.

She subsequently gained extensive experience in production, working variously at the BBC, Partridge Films and United Productions. Having spent over six years as a production co-ordinator and then a production manager she has an invaluable insight into exactly what our clients need. Deciding to move back into post, Esta became a project manager at Films at 59 and then facility manager at Big Bang Post Production, both providing her with a wealth of knowledge of technical workflows, budgets and schedules. Now part of the Evolutions Bristol team, Esta is responsible for sales and ensuring our clients have the best experience possible.
