With London based post house Evolutions outsourcing up to 40 rooms to meet demand they felt is was time to build a third London facility, boasting 24 Avid Media Composer suites, two audio post production Pro Tools studios, three Symphony suites and grading facilities. Evolutions Operations Director Owen Tyler tells us how Avid dealer Jigsaw24 helped them make it happen and met their tough deadlines.
Evolutions are one of the most prestigious names in TV post, with a diverse credit list including QI, TOWIE, Tipping Point, and The Apprentice and almost every fixed rig show on the air, such as 24 Hours in Police Custody, One Born Every Minute and Secret Life of 4 Year Olds. To accommodate this workload, the aim was to build and open a third London based facility as well as expanding their Bristol operations with the purchase of natural history specialists Big Bang.
Previously we’d have had to outsource 30 or 40 rooms in our busiest quarters, which didn’t allow us to have the direct engagement with clients that’s so important to Evolutions’ ethos,. We have a very loyal client base and established suite model that works well for us and our clients, and we wanted to be able to offer everyone the same consistent – and consistently excellent – level of service.
Evolutions secured a facility on Berwick Street, Soho, but had just six weeks to get ready before major clients needed projects underway.
It was a bit of a scramble, Jigsaw24 were very supportive, coming up with workarounds and loaning us video cards and other kit so that we could hit client deadlines despite disruption to the install.
