dock10 opens new post-production hub at MediaCityUK

dock10 VFX worked in collaboration with Graham Clarkin at GeeFX and Mark Woodward, director, BBC Sport, along with the production team at BBC Sport.

The project took about two weeks to complete with the team using Nuke, After Effects and Cinema 4D.

Chris Baker, head of dock10 VFX, said: “Since joining forces with dock10 we are proud to have expanded its range of services.

“Opening the doors to VFX projects has meant that a prestigious project, such as the opening sequence to the Euro 2016, is a new arena in which we can play. I am really proud of what our team has achieved, perfectly emulating the global, yet local, feeling of the tournament.”

The company recently opened a new post-production hub called The Quay at its base in MediaCityUK.
