Timeline TV Provides Post-Production For 'Rabbit Punch'

News Image
Timeline Television has provided post-production for the short feature, Rabbit Punch.

The 15-minute film tells the story of a teenager in search of a place to call home. Job, who is 14, has come to Manchester from the Congo as a refugee. However, his search for a new life has come at a price. Brutalised at home and bullied at school, he can't help but lash out at the world around him. When a chance encounter leads him to his local boxing club, his life takes an unexpected turn for the better. Coaches Trav and Dylan are intrigued by this lightning-fast boy and take him under their wing. Has Jon finally found a new home?

Filmed and set in Manchester, Rabbit Punch was completed earlier this year and has since been distributed around a number of international festivals. To date, it has been selected by eight prestigious festivals around the world, winning its first award for best Northwest short at the Bolton Film Festival.

Rabbit Punch was directed by Keith Farrell, written by Hannah Salt and produced by Phil Meachem and Leah Blakaby. Post-production was completed at Timeline North, where it was edited by Siôn Roberts in Avid Symphony. VFX work was integrated into the workflow using Blackmagic's Fusion software and the grade was completed by Stacey Cain in DaVinci Resolve. The 5.1 mix was dubbed by Richard Lee in Pro Tools. Throughout the offline, resolution was kept at a proxy DNxHD codec before being conformed back to 4K for the delivery. Part of the deliverables included a Digital Cinema Package, created internally at Timeline.
