What did we do

Picture & Audio Finishing + Delivery


Stuart worked closely with Series Producer, Dan Riley to achieve a fresh and honest grade to highlight the grass roots nature of the film. Additionally due to quite freakish weather conditions whilst filming in April there were challenges in the grade to balance showers and snow with quick contrasts to sunshine.

The Online in Avid Symphony involved a collaboration with the YouTube creators to help unify  to the YouTube Originals spec bring it together to as film. Beth and Maciej also re-created of GFX and titles and comped multiple football archive of Gareth Southgate glory days in Euro 96’ onto TV screen from that period, a retro feel was also added with VHS effects.


Mixed in 5.1 using Pro Tools, Steve’s main challenge was to create a soundtrack that would appeal to the wider You Tube audience while remaining understated. The cut featured audio from a variety of sources, ranging from sports archive to location audio and some You Tuber content, meaning Steve had to work hard to maintain a consistent feel across the mix.
