After two years of holding prices, From the 3rd Story Productions have finally taken the step of repricing our award-nominated post-production services, and as of April 2017 these now cost £4/min. of footage. Alongside producing and promoting our own content, we’ve always provided post-production services to other independent filmmakers. In recent months they have started to receive recognition for their post-production work, with award nominations for both Sound Design, at the Portsmouth International Film Festival, and Best Editing, at The Maverick Movie Awards. In both cases the movie in question, The Hunting of the Snark, also won best animated feature. Editor Saranne Bensusan has a vast amount of experience with both features and shorts, having provided color-grading, and audio services as well as having edited many films.
