THE CLIENT

Bad Wolf, the British TV production company founded in 2015 by former BBC executives, Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter.

THE PROJECT

Gravity Media was engaged to support the post-production work on the Sky Original fantasy series A Discovery of Witches.

THE approach

Gravity Media’s post-production engineers Andrew Emmerson and Jason Bloomfield built four Avid-based edit suites for the Witches production team at Gravity House on Frith Street in London, and continued to provide technical support for the duration of the edit. In addition to the four suites, we also supplied a production office space for the post-production supervisor and their team.

THE OUTCOME

Now in its second series, A Discovery of Witches rates an impressive 8.0 on IMDb. First launched in 2018, this drama/fantasy/romance series is based on the eponymously named novel from the ‘All Souls Trilogy’, written by Deborah Harkness. Teresa Palmer portrays Diana Bishop, a historian who discovers a bewitched manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and as she attempts to unravel the secrets this book holds about magical creatures, she is forced back into the world of magic.

A third series is currently in production.
