The U.K.-based postproduction facility Evolutions has invested £200,000 ($274,000) in Flame facilities and hired three editors to grow its services offering in the documentary space.
Des Murray, previously head of editing at Molinare, will join Evolutions as a senior Flame artist. He’s worked documentaries such as Netflix’s Don’t F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer and Memories of a Murderer: The Nilson Tapes, as well as BBC’s The Trials of Oscar Pistorius and Football’s Darkest Secret. Murray will be based at Evolutions’ Sheraton Street Facility.
Based out of the Soho facilities, Laurence Thripp, previously senior online editor at Molinare, has joined Evolutions as senior online editor. His portfolio of work includes Amazon Prime Video’s Uprising, BBC’s Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic and Sky Original’s Queen of Speed.
Afzal Ali, who joined in December as an editor, has previously worked on BBC’s Don’t Tell the Bride, MasterChef and TLC’s Most Extreme.
The new Flame facilities will enable Evolutions to further expand into the high-end documentary genre.
Simon Kanjee, CEO of Evolutions, said: “We are thrilled to continue the expansion of our team with these incredible new additions. Our growth in high-end documentaries represents a new era for us at Evolutions, and we are proud to have such a strong lineup of talent to kick-start this for us this year. In addition, our new Flame facilities are demonstrative of our commitment to our new talent and our continued development as an industry-leading force in the post-production space.”
