Evolutions Gets Its Teeth Into 'Ocean of Fear'

Evolutions is close to finishing the online edit for 'Ocean of Fear', the opening programme in this year's Shark Week series For Discovery US. The programme has been produced by writer & director Richard Bedser for Brook Lapping Productions and airs on Sunday 29 July at 9pm (EST) across America. A UK transmission date will be confirmed soon.
The programme is a drama-documentary about the USS Indianapolis cruiser, which carried parts for the Hiroshima bomb and was torpedoed in the summer of 1945, killing or stranding her 1200-man crew. A gruesome fate for many of the crew, 'Ocean of Fear' explores how the surviving crew members endured four days and five nights in shark infested water.
Evolutions editor Fred Baillod was given the task of completing the online edit on the Avid Symphony Nitris, with Nick Adams creating the grading on Baselight. The entire footage for the programme was shot on HDCAM. Graham Kirkman then produced the dub in Evolutions Dolby 5.1 surround sound dubbing theatre.
Fred Baillod, Evolutions Online Editor said: "An online editors dream, this job. Beautifully shot and very well produced, running smoothly from conform to completion. Mostly HDCAM source, with very little archive, this project was shot progressive with most of the effects being very subtle, to enhance the stunning live action. Thanks to Pete Miller the offline editor who, as always, shows attention to detail and an understanding of the post process, which is invaluable for this type of work. All in all a fantastic end result and a pleasure to be a part of."
"A combination of discipline, energy, creativity and great teamwork made this programme a real privilege to work on. It was challenging, complicated and could have got messy, but the Evolutions team are at the top of their game and work brilliantly together. I'm very grateful," said Richard Bedser, writer and director.
