Executive Producer and founder of Tailfeather, Lucy Van Beek says, “Thank you Halo, Will and all the team who did such a brilliant job on Alexander. It was a joy to work with you all. The care, craft and creativity of the team from grading, sound design to the online was really wonderful and all the back room support was exceptional. Looking forward to the next one…”
Showrunner Tony Mitchell Said… “We had the pleasure and foresight to entrust Halo Post with our new, epic, Netflix series Alexander: The Making of a God. From conception to delivery Halo were heavily involved in helping us navigate the challenges of making this series unforgettable.
They managed all our post requirements from wrangling our 4K data, to providing both remote and in-house offline editing (during Covid), through to creating breathtaking sound effects, skillfully mixing the incredible 7:2 soundscape, to masterfully painting our material in the grade and finally pulling it all together in the online edit which, like everything else Halo oversaw, was managed with an enormous amount of finesse and creativity.
I am hugely grateful to the immensely talented team at Halo for their enthusiasm and expertise – they embraced our series wholeheartedly and everyone went the extra mile to bring our big screen Alexander story to the small screen.”
