- Our Work On His Dark Materials
A Book Come To Life Ever since Mission Digital began our operations in Wales, we’ve always been on the lookout for great productions to be a part of in the region and we are excited to announce that we have just completed the first block of His Dark Materials directed by Academy award winning Director Tom Hooper and lensed by Justin Brown, whose distinct look makes the rushes look spectacular! Coming in for the second block of filming are two friends of Mission Digital - director Dawn Shadforth, who worked as a director with us on Danny Boyle’s Trust, and Suzie Lavelle who was the cinematographer on a few episodes of A Discovery of Witches. A reunion of sorts if you will. As a story that is very close to the heart of many of the team at Mission Digital (it may have even inspired the naming of children) it goes without saying that we are thrilled to be involved in bringing the adventures of Lyra and Pantalaimon to the screen in a story we think is brilliantly suited to episodic television. His Dark Materials is Mission Digital’s second project with Bad Wolf having serviced the above mentioned A Discovery of Witches, one of the many high end television shows and feature films that we have serviced from our Welsh office located in Penarth. For His Dark Materials Mission Digital are providing the DIT, Digital Dailies and Q Take Video playback services, looked after by Alex Golding, Ram Tripathi, Matt Williams, Alex Dias and James Kahn. Mission Digital have been servicing high end Welsh productions for several years now with credits that include, The Bastard Executioner, Will, Show Dogs, Journey’s End, Born To Kill, A Discovery of Witches and His Dark Materials to name a few. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2018/his-dark-materials?ns_mchannel=social&ns_linkname=corporate&ns_campaign=bbc_press_office&ns_source=twitter Our Welsh Story Since beginning our operations in Wales, we’ve been on the lookout for great regional productions to be a part of. And last year, we started a very fruitful relationship with Bad Wolf Productions, a TV and film production company that has graduated from shooting A Discovery of Witches onto the much larger, His Dark Materials. His Dark Materials started shooting earlier this year, and has recently finished its first block of filming. This first block was directed by Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech, Les Miserables) and cinematographer Justin Brown, (The End of the F**cking World) whose distinctive look has made the rushes look truly spectacular. The second block of filming will be helmed by two friends of Mission Digital in the way of director Dawn Shadforth, who worked as a director with us on Danny Boyle’s Trust, and Suzie Lavelle who was the cinematographer on a few episodes of A Discovery of Witches. A reunion of sorts if you will. Mission Digital continue to be hard at work with our team on set, which comprises Alex Golding as a DIT, Alex Dias as our QTAKE Video Playback operator, and James Khan running a digital dailies lab fo the shoot. We’re really proud to be such a significant part of Wales biggest current production, and hope the best for the whole crew during the rest of filming.
