The shortlist for the Grierson Awards, celebrating the best in documentary filmmaking over the past year, has been announced and we are very excited that three productions post-produced at Molinare have gained five nominations between them!
Stephen: The Murder That Changed a Nation (On The Corner / Rogan Productions for BBC One) – nominated in the Best Historical Documentary and Best Documentary Series categories. We completed full picture and sound on this piece of must see television. Dealing with one of the most complex and culturally significant crimes in recent memory this was a fascinating and extremely important project to work on. With sound design by Kim Tae Hak, online editing by Laurence Thripp, colour grading by Chris Rodgers and final mix by Nas Parkash
Love & Hate Crime (Top Hat Productions for BBC Three) - nominated in the Best Documentary Series categories. Three x 60 minute films taking close up look at crime in the US, featuring stories of love and passion with a side order of hate and prejudice. The series was post produced by Emma Comans, with each of our three factual / feature doc mixers taking an episode, it saw the talents of Nas Parkash, Greg Gettens and George Foulgham, online editing by Laurence Thripp and was graded by Andrew Daniel.
Kingdom of Us (Pulse Films / BFI Film Fund for Netflix) – nominated in the Best Single Documentary and the Best Cinema Documentary categories. Lucy Cohen’s study of a mother and her seven children as they come to terms with the suicide of their father, charting their emotional recovery as they piece together their past and look to the future. Mixed by our BAFTA winning head of feature documentary sound George Foulgham, online editing by Des Murray and colour grading by Chris Rodgers, Kingdom of Us has been one of the most moving and highly regarded films of the year.
The awards take place at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank centre on the 5th November and we’ll be there in full force cheering on the people who told these important stories.
