After working on some of most watched and highly acclaimed television productions of the year, Molinare creative teams have bagged four nominations at this year’s prestigious Royal Television Society Craft & Design Awards. The awards recognise excellence in broadcast television in 29 categories from Directing to Make Up Design.

The nominations, announced today, included three for Molinare dubbing mixers, two in drama sound and one in entertainment & non-drama sound, as well as one nomination in picture enhancement category.

Best Sound, Drama saw a nomination for senior mixer Dan Johnson and effects editor Marc Lawes for the BBC’s smash hit drama The Bodyguard. The second nomination in the category went to head of drama sound Nigel Squibbs (who won in 2016 for The Tunnel), effects editor Tony Gibson and dialogue editor Filipa Principe, for the critically acclaimed Patrick Melrose, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Best Sound, Entertainment & Non-Drama saw our head of factual sound, Greg Gettens nominated alongside sound designer Kim Tae Hak for Retreat: Meditations from a Monastery. Greg is no stranger to the awards having won in 2013 for drama sound and 2016 for entertainment & non-drama sound.

Head of grading, Gareth Spensley, rounded out the nominations with a showing in the Picture Enhancement category for his work on the highly acclaimed King Lear for Playground Productions, starring Anthony Hopkins and directed by Richard Eyre.

“We are extremely proud of all of our creative teams,” said Julie Parmenter, Molinare CEO, “and we feel very strongly that their exceptionally high standard is what sets us apart from our competitors. Four nominations across four projects in the RTS awards is a wonderful testament to that and to the hard work all of our staff have put in this year.”
