Timeline TV Delivers For Hacienda Classical

News Image
Timeline Television has delivered full post-production on two versions of a Hacienda Classical documentary for Channel 4 and Sony.

The documentary follows organisers Peter Hook, Mike Pickering and Graeme Park as they attempt to reinvent house music with the Manchester Camerata – a 70-piece classical orchestra.

Stephen Chapman produced the documentary, alongside executive producer Rob McLoughlin OBE and director Chris Cowey. The director of photography was Tighe Grainger and post-production was handled by Timeline North, MediaCityUK. It was edited by David Jackson.

The grade, by DI colourist Trevor Brown, was completed using DaVinci Resolve with the Blackmagic control surface, at Timeline's post facility in MediaCityUK. It involved nine types of camera formats across four varied locations, and two different versions of the show.

The audio was mixed in Avid Pro Tools 11 by dubbing mixers Richard Lee and Dan Piggott. In addition to mixing the broadcast sound, Richard provided the music mix for both documentaries. This offered the production team flexibility, giving them the opportunity to fine-tune the music mix against the final picture cut.

Paul Tovee, Head of Operations at Timeline North, said: "It was a real pleasure to provide full picture and audio post for the Hacienda Classical project. From our first meeting with the producers we knew this would be an exciting yet challenging project. However, the team were superb from ingest through to final delivery. This was a complex project involving a great deal of varied media – yet the offline, online, grade and dub were all seamless."

David Jackson, Editor, added: "Thank you to the Timeline team for looking after us on the Hacienda edit. It was one of the most enjoyable gigs I've worked on, and Timeline was without doubt the nicest place I have edited in. The team there made us feel very welcome."

Hacienda House Orchestra will air on Channel 4 on Thursday, 20 October.
