The Annex ( Post Production)
Established in 2016, the Annex is an exciting addition to the Connect Channel franchise. Our Post Production facility was launched to support the Connect TV shows, but has the capacity to offer post-production support to independent producers. A team of 12 creative and unique editors bring their experience and culturally relevant insights to the variety of genres finished under one roof. We are available to help you out of a deadline jam, edit a series for you, complete a once off job or undertake a fixed term contract. A team of dedicated, deadline driven editors are always willing to go the extra mile.
Our Team is made up of up and coming junior editors and mid level editors who are guided by a team of three senior editors with decades of experience between them. While we currently concentrate on high-end reality TV productions, our team has experience in a variety of short-form and long-form formats including news, sport, business, studio shows, wildlife, children’s programming and commercials.
The Annex has 10 non-linear offline edit suites editing on Premiere Pro CC, three grading suites running DaVinci Resolve 14.0 Studio as well as an ingest and delivery suite, together with 300 terrabytes of storage sitting on a 300mbps fibre network backbone. All suites, subject to availability, are available for dry-hire finished by state of the art grading suites and our passion for perfection. We pride ourselves on the quality of our shows.
