Aquarium adds depth with acquisition of Soho neighbour Mosaic Pictures

Aquarium, the BAFTA nominated audio post facility in Wardour Street, is acquiring Mosaic Pictures, one of Soho’s longest established and most respected editing houses.
Ben Baird, founder of Aquarium said: “The acquisition is about bringing the best talent in audio and video together under one roof, while staying true to our original ethos; that the money goes onto the screen - programmes and their needs come first. We go the extra mile and Mosaic Pictures has the same mindset – that’s why they make a perfect partner for us.”
At just over seven years old, Aquarium has established itself at the forefront of sound production. From award-winning sound design and mixing for TV dramas and documentaries for clients such as Granada, Talkback and the BBC, through to multimedia, exhibition installations and corporate films, Aquarium were also responsible for the sound on four of the top ten computer games in 2004. Their flexible approach and broad expertise enable them to constantly push the limits of sound production to new heights.
Mosaic Pictures’ experience spans 40 years and a wealth of productions during that time. Their team include BAFTA award-winning film editor Ted Roberts, who became the first recipient of the RTS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000, On-line editor Gary Simms, Dubbing Mixer Peter Hodges and Technical Assistant Scott Hales, who will all join Aquarium.
Colin Luke, Director of Mosaic Pictures added: “Our search for a long-term partner has resulted in a perfect match. Aquarium’s skills dovetail into ours wonderfully and we look forward to growing the business together.”
John Hide, Managing Director of Aquarium said: “Our plan to expand Aquarium’s influence within the postproduction sector takes a big leap forward with this acquisition. The newly enlarged Aquarium team offer such a staggering wealth of expertise and experience, and we see this as crucial to our ability in maintaining the highest standards within tight budgets. We look forward to becoming a major force in postproduction.”
Mosaic Films, the independent production company founded by Colin Luke, remains outside the sale.
