ERIC CLAPTON: THE LADY IN THE BALCONY: LOCKDOWN SESSIONS

15th November, 2021

Eric Clapton has returned with a remarkable new release, “The Lady In The Balcony: Lockdown Sessions”

Available via Mercury Studios on multiple formats, the 17 songs find Eric Clapton and longtime bandmates Nathan East (Bass and Vocals), Steve Gadd (Drums) and Chris Stainton (Keyboards) performing acoustic renditions of Clapton standards and an assortment of other numbers encompassing blues, country and rarified originals.

OnSight are proud to have provided the post production for this live recording of Eric Clapton’s performance, with Andy Lee performing the SDR & HDR grade on both the ‘The Lady in the Balcony’ and ‘The Lockdown Sessions’, Adam Sample as Online Editor and Jess Netley-Verrinder as Post Producer.

Overseen by Eric Clapton's legendary longtime Grammy-winning producer Russ Titelman (James Taylor, George Harrison, Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Rickie Lee Jones) and recorded live at Cowdray House in West Sussex, England, the performance finds Clapton and company revisiting such timeless classics as “After Midnight,” “Layla,” “Bell Bottom Blues,” “Tears in Heaven,” “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” and “Key to the Highway.” In addition to revisiting some of Eric Clapton’s best-loved selections from his own extensive repertoire, Eric Clapton and crew also offer their own versions of songs that had a profound effect on his career and those of his contemporaries including the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac tracks “Black Magic Woman” and “Man of the World.”

The Colour Room

12th November, 2021

Catch Phoebe Dynevor, star of hit Netflix series Bridgerton, in her feature film debut - Sky Original’s The Colour Room. She stars opposite Matthew Goode, with director Claire McCarthy and DOP Denson Baker. The film has been released in the UK on Sky Cinema and across selected cinemas from Friday, Nov. 12.

The Colour Room is co-produced by Sky, the UK’s Caspian Films, and Creative England. It is written by Claire Peate, who won the Bafta Rocliffe film award for her script in 2016.

Dynevor plays the real-life figure of Clarice Cliff, a factory worker in the industrial British midlands of the 1920s who revolutionized the 20th century workplace, designed the unprecedented Art Deco ‘Bizarre’ range and became one of the eminent ceramic artists of her time.

Alongside Goode - as eccentric factory owner Colley Shorter - and Dynevor, the cast also includes David Morrissey, Darci Shaw, Kerry Fox and Luke Norris.

Thembisa Cochrane and Georgie Paget produced for Caspian Films, in association with Denaire Motion Picture Poetry and co-producer Neil Jones. Executive producers are Laura Grange and Jasmin Morrison for Sky, Paul Ashton for Creative England’s West Midlands Production Fund and David Gilbert, Charlie Dorfman and Marlon Vogelgesang for Media Finance Capital in association with OnSight.

“The introduction of colour is a running theme throughout the Colour Room as was Clarice Cliff's ambition with her pottery,” said Andy Lee, Senior Colourist. “Denson’s creative approach to lighting enabled the grade to highlight warm and cool elements throughout the film and not shy away from creating a colourful palette which lifts the film out of a 1920's period look and into the word of colour that Clarice was creating through her art.”

Arsène Wenger: Invincible

11th November, 2021

‘Arsène Wenger: Invincible’, the definitive portrait of one of the greatest managers of all time.

Available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download from November 22 and now on the big screen.

Courtesy of Noah Media Group, the creators of some of the most acclaimed feature-length sports documentaries of recent years (Finding Jack Charlton, Bobby Robson: More than a Manager, The Edge, Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans), comes the very first documentary about Wenger, as told in his own words.

OnSight provided full post production for ‘Arsène Wenger: Invincible’ with Adam Sample as Online Editor, Max Horton providing the grade with Jess Netley-Verrinder as Post Producer. 

A genius, visionary and obsessive, what Wenger achieved with Arsènal changed the landscape of the English game and shaped football worldwide.

Featuring remarkable access and previously unseen archive footage, directors Gabriel Clarke (Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager, Finding Jack Charlton) and Christian Jeanpierre draw back the veil on a truly enigmatic figure who discusses, for the first time, the football ‘addiction’ that was both his driving force and his 'fatal flaw’. 

Shot on location in England, France and Arsène’s home village of Duttlenheim, Arsène Wenger: Invicible is a compelling, intimate insight into a football figure like no other.

BOARDERS

08th November, 2021

‘Working with OnSight has been an absolute pleasure. They have supported the project from the very beginning and we couldn’t have made the film without them. They truly worked with us, we felt truly supported by OnSight throughout.’  Jasmin Morrison - Producer

Boarders available on Amazon Prime as part of your subscription, captures the rich culture of the British skate scene. Told through the lives of four British skateboarders as they aim to qualify for the Tokyo Games, where skateboarding made its debut as an Olympic sport.

With director Annika Ranin, Sean Fee and produced by Annika Ranin and Jasmin Morrison from UnMannered Limited. Boarders premiered at Genesis Cinema on July 16th London with International Sales by Urban Distribution International and Reservoir Docs. The film is being distributed by Bohemia Media in the UK, it is now available on iTunes, Sky Store and the Bohemia Euphoria platform.

Filmed over a period of 12 months, Boarders documents a historical moment in time with skateboarding heading to the Olympics and looks under the surface to discuss what it is like to be a professional skateboarder; with bigger competitions and more money entering the sport, the stakes are higher for everyone involved.

Boarders is a character focused film digging deep into the journeys of a group of British skateboarders who are vying for a spot to represent their country at the pivotal arena of elite sportsmanship, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, where skateboarding will make its debut as a competition sport. Starring: Sam Beckett, Alex Hallford, Jordan Thackeray, Alex deCunha

However, a key talking point within the skateboarding community has been whether the Olympics and the influx of commercial interest it brings will dilute the core values of the culture. With archive footage covering 6 decades of British skateboarding, Boarders looks at the various waves of popularity that skateboarding has undergone and introduces a strong look and feel of what skate culture is in the UK. 

Boarders is visual and distinct in its style - after all skateboarding’s rise to the timeless status could not have happened without photography and film.

Antarctica - OnSight takes a deep dive into the unknown with BBC Earth

06th October, 2021

Antarctica was shortlisted for 4 Jackson Wild Awards and won Best Cinematography!

Check out this beautiful giant screen film at London’s Science Museum! 

“OnSight has been a trusted and valued partner for BBC Earth on our Giant Screen films.  On large screen formats, there is nowhere for mistakes to hide and OnSight with their OPR workflow has consistently delivered a premium service quality that has allowed the visuals, audio and storytelling of our natural history films to shine with audiences worldwide.” - Jill Kellie, Commercial Director BBC Earth

Antarctica is a land of mystery and yet what happens here affects every single one of us. With never-before seen footage, the story brings audiences to the farthest reaches of this wild and majestic continent. It is the coldest driest and windiest place on Earth with the roughest oceans and yet, weird and wonderful creatures thrive here in astounding abundance.

Lead by OnSight’s Senior Colourist Andy Lee, OnSight’s creative team enjoyed working alongside BBC Studios Natural History Unit providing full post for this visually stunning feature, using our unique OPR (OnSight Picture Remastering) service. Covering full 6K picture post, 2D to 3D conversion, visual effects, shot extensions, bespoke giant screen deliverables and colour grading for both xenon and laser projection.

The film is directed by Fredi Devas, who worked on Planet Earth II and Frozen Planet. With Production Managers Caroline Cox and Nicola Kowalski, Producer Jonny Keeling, Executive Producer Jonathan Williams and supervising Producer Myles Connolly, who has a wealth of giant screen & IMAX films in his slate.

“In our industry of giant screen filmmaking, quality is the key to success.  With laser projection and screens as big as 90’ x 120’, there’s nowhere to hide. Even the most minute issue is suddenly and glaringly apparent. 

For much of my nearly 30 years in this business, 70mm film was the gold standard for resolution and our ability to manipulate the cleanest image through the photo-chemical pipeline.  But now, with OnSight and their OPR workflow, we have the ability to choose the very best digital tools and create images that not only rival but surpass the very best quality that’s come before.  We now have more filmmaking option, more tools in our toolbox.  This process has helped us succeed on projects like BBC Earth’s “Oceans:  Our Blue Planet” and, more recently “Antarctica 3D”.  Audiences see the quality and come back wanting more.

This industry isn’t for the faint of heart and I’m hugely grateful to Onsight for developing this groundbreaking workflow and helping our films look their best."  - Myles Connolly, Producer for IMAX, Large Format documentaries, 3D and 4k digital production.
