Sky Production Services (SPS) is delighted to announce two key internal promotions in Post Production. Reporting to Adam Downey (Director of Post Production & Partnerships), these appointments reflect the ever-evolving scope of work, which sees SPS delivering across virtually all of Sky’s production slate and shows SPS’ commitment to producing the best possible content across the board.
Joining Hayley Norris & Megan Johnston as part of SPS Post Production’s senior management team, John Cochrane will be assuming the role of Senior Manager of Finishing and Mick Logue as Senior Manager of Sports Delivery respectively. With the Finishing position focusing on delivering content across Entertainment, Scripted, Documentaries and Creative, and the Sports Delivery position combining technical support & editing on SPS’ full range of Sport projects.
Previously, John has been Team Manager of Audio at SPS for 6 years, overseeing the audio department, including the build of a flagship Dolby certified audio theatre and full ProTools upgrade, and the development of specialisms within the department, tailoring each offering to the different content areas around Sky and overseeing the honing of skillsets. John has a long history of delivering finishing services in the movie industry prior to Sky, with credits including Bond titles ‘Die Another Day’, ‘The World is Not Enough’, and ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’.
While, Mick has managed all of SPS’ systems and driven the department’s move to remote editing during the COVID-19 pandemic, standing up 50 remote edit suites and overseeing the delivery of SPS’ remote editing kits to enable freelancers to continue working seamlessly from home.
Adam Downey, Director of Post Production & Partnerships, Sky Production Services, says “The last 6 years have seen radical change in Post Production at Sky, with a much greater diversity of content, technical solutions and craft specialists. These new roles reflect those changes and allow us to move forward in a more cohesive way. I am thrilled that both John and Mick grabbed these opportunities as they’ve contributed massively to make Post Production at Sky a place of excellence and long may that continue.”
