Molinare acquires Notorious DIT, launches new creative group

“The introduction of Molinare Creative Group reflects years of ongoing work to develop, grow, and restructure the Molinare brand," said CEO Nigel Bennett

UK post production facility Molinare is moving into DiT, dailies, and localisation with the launch of The Molinare Creative Group.

The new entity is formed of five companies, including the newly acquired digital dailies and DIT company, Notorious DIT.

Founded by Michael Pentney, Notorious DIT’s credits include The Gentlemen, Peaky Blinders and Heartstopper. Pentney will remain as the company’s managing director and the company will retain its brand, operating as a separate division of the group, said Molinare.

Molinare has also organically launched two brands, Sound Warriors and Voice Molinare, which provide external audio services for the games, advertising, TV and film communities.

Sound Warriors, provides foley, sound editorial, field records and re-recording mixing services for film and TV clients, outside of those undertaking full post production at the facility. Led by chief creative officer and sound supervisor, the company aims to provide authentic audio for all projects, forgoing the use of music libraries, said Molinare. It is already carrying out field records in Finland for an animated feature film.

Voice Molinare (Voice) aims to streamline Molinare’s audio recording services under one brand, delivering ADR, voiceover, dialogue direction, head mounted capture (HMC), performance capture, crowd records and casting across the film, TV and advertising industries.

Voice’s HMC and performance capture services are supported by industry partner, Centroid, out of the purpose-built studio in Molinare’s HQ in central London.

Molinare TV & Film will continue to focus on delivering post production services for the film and scripted and unscripted TV community, including dedicated, offline facilities, picture and audio finishing, QC, mastering and delivery, added the company.

Pip Studios, Molinare’s affiliated audio post production facility, is being brought officially into the group, providing clients with localisation mixing, and services for the film, TV and gaming communities.

Nigel Bennett, CEO, Molinare said, “The introduction of Molinare Creative Group reflects years of ongoing work to develop, grow, and restructure the well-regarded Molinare brand. The new structure allows us to be clearer with what services we provide, the creatives who will be working on them, and where they are rolled out.

“Sound Warriors and Voice are essential for developing a dedicated space for our growing external audio and performance capture output, whilst the additions of Pip and Notorious puts Molinare in the unique position to provide a truly end to end solution to our post production clients. I am very proud to launch the new group and take the next step in Molinare’s ongoing journey.”
