dock10 has opened a new post-production hub called The Quay at its base in MediaCityUK.
Located on the first floor of its studio building at the heart of the campus, the new post facility has been established to cope with increased demand from existing clients and on the back of the recent purchase of Manchester VFX house Edit19.
The new facilities include 10 offline and two online suites, four VFX suites, a motion graphics area and an expanded grade facility with built-in projector.
Paul Austin, head of post production and content, said: “This is a very busy time for dock10 and we are very excited to be opening The Quay.
“As well as increasing our capacity to 50 edit suites (includes remote editing facilities), the facility adds a ‘wow factor’ grade suite and a home for our new VFX business.
“It also enables us to base our first-class team at the heart of the action, in line with our commitment to delivering a true one-stop-shop with superlative service.”
Chief executive Mark Senior said the new facility had already had a “significant” number of bookings.
He said: “In the broadcast post production market we are increasingly working with high end dramas such as ‘The Five’ for Red Productions (which recently screened on Sky1) and following our acquisition of Edit19 we needed to build a VFX facility for our agency and commercial clients.”
Programmes produced at dock10 include The VoiceUK, The ITV Leaders’ Debate, Match of the Day, Ordinary Lies, Happy Valley and Idris Elba’s King of Speed.
