Post-production facility Blue Post has expanded its team with the appointment of industry veteran Dave Hollingsworth as director of post-production.

Hollingsworth’s appointment marks his return to Australia after 14 years working overseas with some of the world’s best directors, including Peter Jackson, Guillermo Del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Taika Waititi and Neill Blomkamp.

Blue Post managing director Peter Millington said: Hollingsworth will be responsible for the development and deployment of all technical and creative services provided by the company and for extending those services into new markets.

“The role will draw upon Dave’s 25 years of experience as an executive-level post and VFX manager, as well as his expertise as a supervising colourist,” he said.

“The knowledge he’s gained at renowned facilities such as Park Road Post Production, where he was a key part of the award-winning team that designed, built and implemented the High Frame Rate 3D pipeline for The Hobbit, will compliment the investment we’re making in new infrastructure.

Millington said with the emergence of highly complex 4K and HDR post-production pipelines, connectivity between Blue Post’s facilities and its local and international clientele is more crucial than ever.

“We’ve just moved into a purpose-built facility in Port Melbourne and have added new SAN storage in our offices in Sydney and Melbourne,” he said.

“We’re providing services for productions in every state and are connecting them all with dark fibre technology. We’re fortunate to have someone like Dave come on board to oversee these developments.”

Commenting on his new role, Hollingsworth said: “After working for 14 years in three different international film and TV markets, it’s an absolute pleasure to take up such a great role in Australia among the best in the business.

“Blue Post has a fantastic reputation, gaining respect from clients in Australia and abroad for its high-quality work, technical innovation and excellent client service over the past 15 years.

“I am really excited to be joining the team in Sydney to help build on that reputation and grow the business into the future.”
