Deal secures 14 jobs in Bristol and ensures continuity of current projects
London and Bristol, 17 March 2016: Evolutions has acquired the trade and key assets of the highly regarded Bristol post house Big Bang Post Production Ltd.
The agreed deal sees Big Bang Post Production’s picture editing and finishing equipment and infrastructure, its on-going work, and all 14 of its full-time staff become part of Evolutions Bristol.
At the same time, Evolutions has taken on the leases for two of the four buildings in St Paul’s Road in Bristol that were occupied by Big Bang Post Production.
This gives Evolutions a total of four post-production facilities in the city.
Founded by colourist Tim Bolt in 2004, Big Bang Post Production specialised in providing picture editing and finishing services to natural history, factual, arts and children’s productions.
Simon Kanjee, managing director of Evolutions, said: “Big Bang Post Production is a highly respected company with talented and friendly staff that have a reputation for creative and technical excellence. When it became clear that there was an opportunity to add the skills and expertise of Tim and his team to Evolutions Bristol we jumped at it.”
Kanjee continued: “The deal provides continuity for Big Bang’s staff, clients and projects, adds significant talent to Evolutions Bristol’s already extensive capabilities and widens our remit to include natural history programming. It’s a great conclusion for everyone.”
Tim Bolt said: “Over the past 12 years we’ve done some fantastic work, at an incredibly high standard, on some amazing series. And we will continue to do so as part of Evolutions Bristol. We will take the strengths of both companies and put them together. What Evolutions is good at, we will add to, and vice versa. We believe that the joint company will be better and stronger than the two businesses would be if they were operating separately. “
Big Bang Post Production credits include Earth’s Greatest Spectacles (BBC2), Gorilla Family and Me (BBC2), Britain’s Outlaws (BBC4) and Harvest 2015 (BBC2).
