Molinare has appointed Tom Woodall as its new head of picture facilities. Woodall joins from Coda Post Production, where he was previously head of operations.
Head of picture facilities is a brand-new role at Molinare and is designed to bring together all video teams and departments in a collaborative and cohesive manner. The role is essential to creating bespoke and robust workflows, overseeing that all projects run smoothly and accurately from the earliest stage of ingest and right through to delivery, and ensuring that clients’ and vendors’ needs and requirements are met throughout.
Woodall brings experience into Molinare with an extensive background in post-production, and joins at a vital time of change, not only for Molinare but also in the industry. Working closely with Darren Woolfson, director of technology and visual services, they aim to bolster and expand Molinare’s in-house and remote picture services in the coming months.
Woolfson commented, “We have created this new position in order to bring together our Online, Grading and VFX departments and I have enormous confidence that Tom’s experience and expertise will bring success to the role.”
Woodall added, “With facility-wide upgrades planned for 2021, strengthening teams to ensure our talent pool is as diverse as possible, and embracing new technologies we plan to be at the forefront of innovative film making. Molinare is set to work on and deliver incredible projects throughout 2021 and beyond.”
Molinare’s post team recently completed post production on the acclaimed four-part docu-series The Life & Trials Of Oscar Pistorius. These include colourist Vicki Matich, online editors Des Murray and Beren Croll, plus George Foulgham, Tom Verstappen, Chad Orororo, Louisa Kearns, Claire Ellis and Zoe Freed, who worked variously on sound, dialogue and foley.
