Full picture and sound postproduction by halo.
The extraordinary and chilling story of career conman Robert Freegard who masqueraded as an MI5 agent and fooled people into going into hiding. But then he scams a quick-witted lawyer – who decides to take him down. Based on a true story. This feature film was fully edited and post-produced at Halo. Here is some of the encouraging and enthusiastic feedback we received from the filmmakers…
“Halo came highly recommended from numerous producers and we soon came to realise why. We were completely blown away by the attentive service and expertise that helped guide us. As with any feature, we were met with many difficult challenges during post – but nothing was too much for the team at halo. Guided by their impervious producer, Marie Valentino, we felt like part of a team that wanted the best for us at every turn. A film’s survival is bound by an energy and togetherness that was in great abundance here. Duncan’s (colourist) grasp of how colour, light and tone shape our understanding of the world has been a great inspiration to me, and made a huge contribution to a film. He’ll be one of the first calls I make for my next film, and I look forward to learning more from him down the road. A special shout out to Jay Price and Simon Hill, who brought a level of genius and creativity akin to magic to the sound; things we could not have imagined alone, and a final cut that stands taller because of their masterful contribution. Halo is a home for those lucky enough to find themselves within it’s walls. We can’t wait to return on our next project”

“We had such a great experience at halo getting ROGUE AGENT completed. With a tight budget and even tighter schedule, everyone worked above and beyond to help get the film delivered on time. Great crew, great facilities and great collaborators. Thanks, halo!”
Gina Carter (producer).
“I recently spent 2 weeks grading a feature with Duncan and found him to be great to work with, easy going and talented. He is experienced enough to be able to handle anything and enthusiastic enough to bring many ideas of his own into the grading theatre. He manages to foster a collaborative, relaxed atmosphere; myself and the director always felt listened to as we offered our opinions. I was impressed also by the prep work he did; pre-setting looks and researching my own back catalogue of films so that we had something to work with right away. Highly recommended.”
