“Onsight did a thoroughly professional job under very difficult circumstances. Remote working, fast cuts, complex archive management and a global lockdown are a heady mix.. but you’d never know this was anything other than a beautifully posted film.” - Martin Williams, Director

After two fatalities in just three years, locals believe their sharks behave more aggressively than anywhere else. In search of answers, Dr Craig O’Connell and local abalone diver Marc Payne head out to a nearby chain of islands to find out if the sharks learn to hunt differently here compared to populations in other parts of the world.
They discover a population of highly inquisitive, sub-adult great whites and a network of caves where the sharks learn to hunt in the shadows, revealing themselves as the ultimate stealth hunters. Armed with cutting-edge technology and specially designed camouflage suits the team take on the sharks at their own game as they attempt to out-stealth the ocean’s greatest predator inside this great white lair.

Meeting Gorbachev had a great summer of film festivals this year, it will be distributed by A+E Network and will be available to watch on Sky documentaries on Thursday 2nd July at 22:15 and available now on Amazon Prime.
Feature documentary “Meeting Gorbachev” by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog and Emmy Award winning Director, André Singer.
OnSight were delighted to provide full 4K Post Production for this important feature film.
" Even for Werner Herzog, but especially for me, to tackle one of the greatest figures of the 20th Century for our film "Meeting Gorbachev" was both daunting and challenging. Relying on the skill-set of Onsight for the whole post-production process was not only essential, contributing to the global success of the film, but (hugely important) was enjoyable too. This is a post-production team at the top of their game"
The film is Werner Herzog and Mikhail Gorbachev in a conversation about history, the fall of the Soviet Union and the future of Russia embellished with black Herzogian humour.
Produced by Spring Films and Werner Herzog Film for History Films, A&E Indie Films and MDR/ARTE. Producers are Lucki Stipetic and Svetlana Palmer. It was Directed by André Singer and Werner Herzog and Edited by Michael Ellis. Richard Melman is the Executive Producer, Ulrich Brochhagen is the Executive Producer for MDR/ARTE and Molly Thompson is Executive Producer for History Films.
With his distinctive voice and his penchant for the more absurd sides of humanity, Werner Herzog is an unparalleled narrator. But in Meeting Gorbachev he is in for a fight to the finish. Herzog's conversations with the 87-year-old former head of state is epic in scope, but has a keen eye for history's small details. The greatness and fall of the Soviet Union, the Cold War, the future of Russia the ageing Gorbachev's political insight is as profound as his trust in the individual. We are reminded of how things could have turned out with this vast country. As any good Marxist knows, history is just a byword for struggle and conflict, but Gorbachev looks forward towards a possible future with peace. Herzog himself contributes his own analyses of archive material from the Soviet era, where he with black humour and a sharp eye finds the most interesting details in the midst of all the confusion. And, paradoxically, it is these details that end up being decisive.
