How Dolby Atmos Elevates The Midwich Cuckoos

For Dolby we shot and edited this informative promo about the use of Dolby Atmos in the Sky series ‘The Midwich Cuckoos’.

The Midwich Cuckoos out NOW on Sky Max in Dolby Atmos. Feel and see more in this brand new, thrilling Sky Original drama in Dolby Atmos. With Dolby Atmos, experience a wider, multi-dimensional sound experience. Dolby Atmos enhances richer details and captures creative intent with more space and depth. “Midwich,” a silent town where nothing ever happens, at least not until the dusk of one summer’s day, when a zone of Midwich suddenly fall to their feet. The people lose consciousness. And yet, nobody knows why, nobody knows how, and with no knowledge of the looming horror soon to come. This mysterious haze seems short-term with those affected awakening. But then, a sudden realisation occurs. Every woman of child-bearing age inside the area has unexplainably fallen pregnant. As the women give birth, they soon realise, these children are unlike any other. Watch the exclusive interview and uncover how the electrifying soundscape was specifically crafted to revolve around the panic of Midwich. Only in Dolby Atmos. Interview includes Howard Bargroff, re-recording mixer at Sonorous Trident and Alice Troughton, Director and Executive Producer of “The Midwich Cuckoos.”

Icon UK Film Channel OTT Trailers

A new round of trailers in early 2021 for the Icon label.
To get catalogue trailers delivered to OTT services can often require ‘invisible’ editing. Cutting for modern all – ages viewing, localising legal, video formats and ratios, audio levels and re-formatting or replacing titles and graphics for a new distributor.

Muse Of Fire

MUSE OF FIRE is an 83-minute feature documentary produced by actors Giles Terera (Hamilton) and Dan Poole (Dungeons & Dragons), (Peterloo) in 2013. At GVFilm we helped sculpt the narrative via sizzle reels and sales trailers, before assisting in the edit of the film and a special BBC version – as well as also providing Trailers and promotional material. To this day it is still racking up new international sales across a huge variety of formats.
It is a testament to creating materials that will sell a film and can be delivered to global platforms.

GV Film were commissioned to polish trailer assets from Icon’s vast library for 2021 OTT distribution which included updating PAL and NTSC assets to HD, censor cuts and new graphic elements. Titles included Austin Powers International Man Of Mystery, Mullholland Falls, The Getaway and Enigma.

We also created a few original trailers when assets were not available such as for the blockbuster 90’s thriller ‘Shattered’.
