Everyone loves a compliment, here are a few we have received.
'Brilliant Attention to Detail '
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.
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
'Nothing was ever a problem'
“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.”
Director-Age before Beauty
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
