Who's doing what in post-production?
Every month we bring you news of which feature films and scripted TV productions are a wrap. For these projects it is time for the editing, the music, the grading and the closing credits to be added before they are delivered to our screens.
The latest batch covers those titles which finished filming over the last month, or due to wrap over the next few days, and includes the names of the post-production companies in charge of the next phase.
Stratton's ups and downs
So off we go, and we start with Stratton, which wrapped on 8 September. The Simon West-directed thriller, set among the British Special Forces, saw some ups and downs before cameras rolled. The biggest bit of news was that lead actor and producer Henry Cavill dropped out just days before shooting was due to start. Dominic Cooper stepped in and after a brief re-grouping, the project was ready to go again with relatively little delay. London, Rome and southern Italy provided the main locations, with LipSync in charge of post.
The Sense of an Ending…almost
The production team on The Sense of an Ending are packing up their kit, with the six week shoot due to finish on 3 October. Ritesh Batra directs Jim Broadbent in this big screen adaptation of Julian Barnes' Man Booker Prize-winning novel about a retired man looking back at his friends' lives, as an explosive letter rocks his foundations. The feature, which was filmed in London, comes from Origin Pictures and the mighty BBC Films, with - once more - LipSync doing post-production.
Beowulf - a lengthy shoot for an epic poem
On to TV now, and the mammoth Beowulf. The seven-month shoot began back in March on locations in Northumberland and County Durham, including the former Eastdale Quarry in Weardale. The bumper 13 x 60 run is from ITV Studios and is an adaptation of the Old English poem. Stand by for lots of scabbard and tabards as none other than William Hurt plays Hrothgar with Kieran Bew in the title role. Last day of shooting is 3 October, with post being handled by Molinare.
