Samuels reunites with Hackenbacker for The Fear

Director Michael Samuels has once again chosen Hackenbacker’s audio post production team to handle the entire audio post for his new four-part drama series The Fear, which will be screened on terrestrial TV in December. Hackenbacker and Michael Samuels also joined forces during the making of Any Human Heart, a Carnival Films/Masterpiece mini-series. The Fear, which is being made for Channel 4 by World Productions in association with WW Entertainment, stars Peter Mullan. Written by Richard Cottan (Wallander, Hancock & Joan), The Fear also stars Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones, The Iron Lady), Paul Nicholls (The Passion, Clapham Junction) and Anastasia Hille (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Awakening). Commenting on the project, Hackenbacker’s founder Nigel Heath said: “It is always a joy to work with a director such as Michael and we are all extremely proud to have contributed to such a magnificent production. Michael’s distinguished use of sound in this deeply intense series really adds another dimension to the storytelling. By using devices such as the removal of usually expected sonic elements and other techniques, some of which are very subtle, we aim to help involve the audience with Richie’s experiences as heard from his perspective.”
