Post-production on CBBC’s BAFTA award-winning programme The Dumping Ground

The Dumping Ground is a children’s comedy drama that focuses on the lives and experiences of young people growing up in care.

Timeline is proud to provide online, grade, audio dubbing and delivery from its state-of-the-art facilities in MediaCityUK.

Colourist Trevor Brown grades The Dumping Ground using DaVinci Resolve with advanced control panels. The show has always boasted a “warm and safe feel” on screen which Trevor maintains throughout the series.

As well as balancing the quickly changing weather conditions encountered in the North East of England, where The Dumping Ground is shot by DoP Steve Buckland, there is also the matter of matching Arri Amira and GH-5 material, often intercut in the same scene to great effect.

Additionally Dubbing Mixer Dan Piggott completes the audio work, combining production dialogue with ADR recorded on location and in Timeline’s facilities in MediaCityUK and Soho. Piggot also provides sound effects editing and sound design for the live-action and animated elements.

Finally the online, completed by Siôn Roberts, adds the final layer of visual effects and graphics to round off an exceptionally high-standard production.
