2 Avid Symphony suites with advanced colour correction, Boris Continuum effects and filters, and Adobe Creative Suite.


We can offer DaVinci Resolve or Avid Symphony. DaVinci Resolve also offers 4K grading capability and is fast becoming the choice of drama and commercial colourists. Feel free to talk to us to see which solution is best suited to your production.


Dub 1 and 2 are 5.1 theatres with Avid 32 fader D­Control surfaces, whilst Dub 3 is a smaller prep/mix room, tracklay rooms also available. We have a large ADR (solo and group) studio and we can offer location ADR and Remote Voice Over via ISDN or Source Connect.  


At Core, we are constantly keeping up with the latest software releases and technological advances. We only roll these out once they are fully tested and we’re happy that they are stable for use on your project.

  • For me, the downside of working at Core Post was the constant struggle to prise my director and editor away from the pool table. The upside was that the team and the facility are all absolutely first class. We were looked after royally from start to finish and had a hugely enjoyable time working there. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Margot GavanDuffy-Producer 'Boy Meets Girl' Tiger Aspect
  • “When you walk into CORE you immediately sense a calm environment. It is a relaxed and tastefully designed space and a wonderful place to complete your programme. The team are very organised and talented with good feedback and clear channels of communication. The sound design in particular would be hard to beat. From off-line edit to delivery the process was a pleasure and the price was very competitive. It takes many years of experience to create such a good and reliable post-production facility. I would certainly recommend taking your project to CORE”

    Dominic Macdonald-Producer CBBC 4'OClock Club
  • “We had a very positive experience at Core – we were producing a big Daytime series which was up against transmission, the team were incredibly dedicated, flexible and creative with a brilliant attention to detail – always felt confident they could make things work and deliver.”

    Karen Stockton-Production Executive ITV
  • “It’s been a long time since I personally have been so impressed with a Post House.
    Producers and directors, including myself in the past, constantly bark on about various Soho facilities and how good they are . . . . well I can honestly say Core can compete. Being able to deal with a small group of people who are at the top of their game in a relaxing environment is what you need after an demanding shoot, and Core delivered that. Nothing was ever a problem. Little things that can sometimes hold you up in the fine cut, like waiting for a music track . . . never happened. All our requirements were there in place before we needed them.”

    Paul Walker-Director 'Boy Meets Girl' Tiger Aspect

  • “We chose to edit at Core because not only are the team incredibly experienced and professional but they were also the most competitive on costs. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Core for post production
