The Farm’s joint founding directors Nicky Sargent and Vikki Dunn will be presented with a BAFTA Special Award at the BAFTA Craft Awards on 17th July.
The pair are being recognised for their exceptional careers and dedication to the field of television post production.
After initially working together at Molinare and The Television Corporation, Sargent and Dunn founded The Farm Group in 1998. With facilities in London, Bristol and Manchester as well as inside BBC North, UKTV and Fremantle, The Farm works across multiple post production crafts including editing, VFX and colour grading.
Amanda Berry, chief executive of BAFTA, said: “We are thrilled to be awarding Nicky Sargent and Vikki Dunn our prestigious Special Award. From the very beginning, The Farm set themselves apart through covering a wide range of genres, quickly gaining an international reputation for excellence. Their award-winning work is underpinned by an outstanding approach to their creative workforce, and their nurturing of talent. I want to extend my personal thanks for all they have contributed to our industry and my congratulations for this well-deserved award.”
