Halo provided full picture and sound post production
Exec Producer, Helen Collerton says, “I have no doubt that we’ll be able to say thank you properly this summer at some kind of drinks situation, but for now I just wanted to say that halo have been incredible throughout this project. I know what a beast it has been and always a lot of effort and work at the back end of each deliverable, plus no mean feat to be playing out a feature every night for about forty-seven years.
Massive, massive thank you from me to every single member of the team..”
