Yellowmoon Brings The Past To Life With Channel 4's Ancient Tracks

Northern Ireland-based film and television post-production house, Yellowmoon, has announced that its team of post-production experts recently completed work on Doubleband's three-part series, Britain's Ancient Tracks with Tony Robinson.

Currently being aired on Channel 4 on Saturdays at 8pm, the series explores the mysteries and legends behind Britain's network of ancient trackways.

Yellowmoon was tasked with creating a televisual experience that made the viewer feel like they were travelling alongside Tony on his journeys. Every episode had to capture in detail the beauty and essence of each remarkable route, and show-off the outstanding landscapes of some of the oldest roads in the country.

Using Avid Pro Tools 12.5 software and S6 Console control surface in Yellowmoon's newly refurbished Dolby theatre, dubbing audio mixers Paul Maynes and Aaron O'Neill worked hard to stir the viewer's imagination by bringing the past alive. Grading artist, Scott Ferguson, also used DaVinci Resolve to heighten the beauty of Great Britain's various landscapes while keeping the look realistic and grounded.

Greg Darby, Managing Director at Yellowmoon, said: "We wanted to make sure that our work supported the stunning scenery captured by DoubleBand during filming. It also had to pull the viewer in to believe they were walking with Tony Robinson to make them feel connected with the story. Working closely with director, Brian Henry Martin and producer, Ben O'Loan, we were able to bring their work to life by creating a series that would tell the many tales of Britain's ancient trackways."

Yellowmoon's recent credits include Disney's The Lodge, Game of Thrones, The Fall, Line of Duty, The Secret plus many more.
