Hello there !
Can’t believe it’s almost a year since we moved into our new offices here in Merrion Square. Probably one of the fastest years we’ve had and luckily our busiest too!
During that time I’m delighted to have online editor and colourist Oleg Jitov join us, who has made a huge contribution to our team. Oleg’s credits are very impressive having spent almost 20 years working in the industry. We have him grading lots of factual, lifestyle and entertainment shows to keep him busy !
In animation we’ve yet again had the pleasure of working with our uber-talented colleagues at Cartoon Saloon on the 2nd season of Puffin Rock, which was recently acquired by Netflix! Pretty amazing year for the “Salooners” given they were also nominated for best animated feature at this years Oscars for Song Of The Sea !
We recently completed all 26 episodes of the 2nd series of Wildernuts too for our equally talented chums at Kavaleer, who go into production with their upcoming new series Kiva Can Do very soon. Can’t wait for that. Voice records, sound design, mix and online editing all happening here at Gorilla.
So far so good on the commercials front too with plenty of campaigns throughout the year for the likes of Jaguar, Bank of Ireland, Ulster Bank, Red Bull, Failte Ireland and Fruice, to name just a few. Most recently we completed the sound design and mix for An Post’s new TV campaign, “A Journey of Things,” which is now airing regularly on RTE and Sky. So we’ve generally had lots of creative agencies and production companies walk through our doors over the past while. Big shout out to H2 Films, Motherland, Rothco, Publicis, In The Company Of Huskies, Target Mc Connells, Caboom and Jumper Productions !
Not surprisingly for this time of year TV broadcast has really revved up a notch in the last month or two as well. As I write this we’re currently working on some great new shows such as Crumlin, A Week To My Wedding, Hardy Bucks, Nurses, Fir Bolg, and Entrepreneur Of The Year. When it rains it pours ! We look forward to another series of The Mario Rosenstock Show in December as well plus a 1 hour special of Thank GAA It’s Friday for Loosehorse. We’ll be doing the offline, online, grade and mix.
Thanks for reading this blog and we look forward to working with you all soon!
