Post House End of Year Round-Up: House Post Production’s Fiona Byrne on 2015
20 Dec 2015 : Seán Brosnan
House have worked on ‘Panti Does 2015’ airing over the Christmas period
Continuing our End of Year Post House Round-Up, we talk to Fiona Byrne of House Post Production.

After a “massive year of growth and expansion for House” we talk to Fiona Byrne exactly one year after she joined Bob Caldwell at the award-winning post production studio.

IFTN: What have been the highlights of 2015 for House Post Production?

Fiona Byrne: ‘2015 has been a massive year of growth and expansion for House. This December will be one year since Fiona Byrne joined forces with Bob Caldwell during which time House has welcomed a full time Edit Assistant, Blaine Sweeney, a junior editor Stephen Conkey and most excitingly, a fab new Grader working on in one of our swankiest suites on Da Vinci Resolve. Aline Biz is Brazilian living in Ireland and has brought her beautiful colorist skills over the water with her. Annie Hayes is also joining the team and proving to be a very talented Edit Assistant.’

‘There have been many highlights including ‘Unemployables’, edited by Bob Caldwell and Derek Holland, (Coco), ‘Exiles’ was cut by Arnaud Rigaud (a favourite and regular in House) and Jordan Montminy (Straywave).

‘Later in the year was the labour of love by David Keoghan, Ruan Magan and Bob Caldwell that is ‘The Long Shot’ which was three years in the making but the end result was a beautifully shot and moving documentary about the highs and lows of horse racing.

More recently we had the pleasure of working with Playmaker Media and their hard hitting two part documentary series ‘Bressie’s Ironmind ‘ cut by Conor Fitzpatrick and another new client Newgrange who made the stunning Designing Ireland (four parts), which was beautifully graded in here by Aline Biz and edited by Bob Caldwell, Derek Holland, Alistair Mayes and helped along by our new protégé Stephen Conkey.

Another project we were deeply involved in is the Reality Bites doc ‘Seconds to Live’ which can be difficult to watch as the rapid response team performs lifesaving roadside surgeries, much of which was captured on their GoPro cams.

House also partnered with Dublin’s first Mediacon, which was a great success. We sponsored a cocktail party (what else?) in Café en Seine and the turnout and feedback was phenomenal.

As we wrap up 2015 and approach 2016 it is not without a sense of anticipation as we plan our expansion, upgrades and all round world domination.

Do you have any programs in the Christmas television schedule?

‘We are delighted to work on ‘Panti Does 2015’ (Coco). Following the great reception this same programme (Totes 2014) received we are delighted to have a look back at 2015 and put together a slice of nostalgic fun for Christmas.’

What’s in store for the first quarter of 2016?

‘We are most excited about the new comedy series Bridget & Eamon, a spin-off of Bernard O’ Shea and Jennifer Maguire’s Republic of Telly characters. Bob is laughing into his Avid and if the rough cuts are anything to go by, it will be Huge!

Anything else of note?

We have been heavily involved in the production of a couple of strong pilot’s that should come to fruition in 2016 – watch this space!
