Somebody Up There Likes Me

Mike Figgis’s enthralling documentary about the turbulent life and career of Ronnie Wood, legendary rock guitarist and long-time member of The Rolling Stones.

Halo provided full Picture and Sound Post Production.

Line Producer, Melissa Morton Hicks says…
It is a joy to work at Halo – great facilities, very talented creative team and supportive, understanding producers – nothing is ever a problem. Everything, as always, went very smoothly. The whole team are great, fantastic post-production company.

Dubbing Mixer, Simon Hill says…
Mike has a fascinating way of using interviews in long unedited sequences with rare cutaways and no contributor removal – alongside scenes where detailed foley and moving score help paint the emotion behind Ronnie and his artistic talent. One scene, in particular, posed a unique challenge for me. I remember Mike giving me a very Stones-esque rock track he had developed to run with some interviews from the band talking about Ronnie – he gave me the direction “don’t turn the music down”. I’m used to having a primary sonic focus and volume adjustment is the most accessible tool for mixers to impart that focus onto the audience. The end result took some crafting but it really does energise that part of the film and with no sacrifice to intelligibility.” Thanks for that one, Mike!

Colourist, Ross Baker says…
Grading this film was a real pleasure!. The style of the interviews with Ronnie have a real personality to them as they document his personal journey. A warm earth grade felt so right for these, embracing Ronnie’s calm and down to earth philosophy.
