Staff Testimonials

I joined Molinare in 2017 as part of the running team after completing my studies in Music Technology. During this period I took the opportunity to shadow the audio team as much as I could. I quickly gravitated towards Dialogue Editing, and before long I was given the opportunity to help the Dialogue team between my running shifts.

After 6 months I was promoted to Trainee Dialogue Editor, where I received amazing training from both the Drama and Factual departments. Over the past year, I have been assisting and working solo on projects in my current role as Junior Dialogue Editor. I am incredibly proud to have worked on high-end dramas such as BAFTA winning Patrick Melrose, Bodyguard and The Durrells.

Molinare has given me so many opportunities to develop myself and learn from a team of highly experienced and supportive industry professionals - I count myself very lucky to be surrounded by the best in the business.

Louisa Kearns, Dialogue Editor joined Molinare in 2017 as a runner

I had the opportunity at the end of my studies to do work experience at Molinare for a week. After this week, I was offered a runner position, and I jumped at this chance with both hands. I had set my sights on becoming an Assistant Re-Recording Mixer, because of my background in music production.

Molinare has given me the encouragement and time to make my move from Belgium to London. During the 18 months of being part of the Client Service team, I shadowed the audio team to learn as much as possible. Since October 2018 I’ve been assisting the BAFTA-winning George Foulgham on top-level theatrical feature documentaries and TV documentaries. It’s been amazing to be able to learn from- and work alongside - the best of the best in the industry.
