Roger Wedlake

Technical Director – Post-Production, Gravity Media - UK

As Technical Director – Post-Production at Gravity Media based at Southwood, Roger manages the company’s development in the supply of location post-production facilities for high-profile broadcast events.

Since supplying BBC Sport with its entire London Olympics 2012 post facility in Stratford, as HyperActive Broadcast, Gravity Media’s reputation for delivering complex post-production projects has grown. Technical Director Roger Wedlake was the driving force behind that success, and he continues to oversee Gravity Media’s support of high-profile broadcast events.  

Sponsored at university by the MoD, Roger has a Masters Degree in Engineering from Cambridge University. Having then trained at the BBC, Roger travelled extensively for BBC TV News working as a VT Editor. His move to Finepoint in 1989 brought considerable outside broadcast experience, and whilst he was its Chief Engineer, the company’s broadcast dry hire business grew threefold, driven by a reputation for technical excellence.

Roger joined Gravity Media in 2008, bringing with him a deep understanding of tapeless post-production for both film and TV. He has been instrumental in winning and fulfilling facilities contracts for many well-known prime-time TV shows, sporting events, feature films and major outside broadcasts.

“Roger leads a dedicated, hard-working and professional engineering team and I am immensely grateful for the support that he and his colleagues have provided since we started this project.”
