One of the best recognised Online Editors on the UK post scene has joined Residence Pictures. Owen Hulme joins as Online Editor & partner from The Farm Group where he started his career.
Owen has more than 18 years’ experience working in scripted drama. In that time he’s developed close working relationships with leading directors including Shane Meadows, Hugo Blick, Marc Munden and Tom Shankland and built an impressive credit list finishing ground-breaking episodic series including Utopia and more recently The Serpent and I May Destroy You.
Owen said: “I’m really looking forward to joining such a progressive facility as Residence Pictures and bringing my experience in scripted to the exciting roster of projects already on our slate.”
Residence Pictures launched in the Spring with a sole focus on picture finishing in high-end episodics and features. Forming part of the Coffee & TV group, the service offering comprises end to end workflow planning and execution, colour grading, online, QC and delivery with invisible and specialist visual effects provided by Coffee & TV who are building up an impressive slate of VFX credits in episodics and features.
Passionate about levelling up the playing field, Residence Pictures is also establishing a training academy to offer practical training for under-represented and marginalised communities within the UK post and VFX industry. The aim of the scheme which is currently in development is to make every single graduate employable and legitimately build a pathway that enables a diverse representation of backgrounds, cultures and lived experiences not just into the Coffee & TV Group business but to the industry overall. A pilot for the scheme is scheduled to roll out in early 2023.
Hulme joins a quartet of industry-leading elite talent that came together as Co-Founders to launch Residence Pictures. Harriet Dale, Paul Harrison and Julian Nelson were each headhunted by Managing Director Cara Kotschy.
Cara Kotschy said: “Owen’s experience, reputation and pedigree as an online editor is perfectly placed to help us launch Residence Pictures in its inaugural year. His ability to ensure clients leave happy and return to work with him time and again is second to none and I’m delighted to have him on board.”
