Halo Post almost doubled in size last year after acquiring Spirit Studios in Margaret Street. It means Halo now operates out of two central London locations. Managing director John Rogerson says Halo is eyeing further “expansion in production hotspots through acquisition and partnership.” Some 75% of Halo’s work comes from the broadcast market, with 10% from commercials and some in corporate, film and promos. Halo employs 24 full-time staff, making it – in the words of Rogerson – “small enough to care, big enough to handle large projects.” The company owners are also operators. Halo has ploughed £200k into kit upgrades over the last year, and plans a £100k-plus spend this year.

Michael Peatfield, md of The Station, which concentrates mainly on broadcast work as well as corporate, comments that the recession has led to an “Increased incidence of undercutting from the larger facilities. We work hard to ensure that our clients receive and appreciate the added value that The Station gives to every project.” The company put its investment energies into upgrading its edit suites as well as “storage and asset management solutions” and “Ingest and transcoding stations.” It picked up work across various genres including Dispatches docs, Bill Bailey’s Birdwatching Bonanza for Fever Media and’s ITV weather sponsorship and hopes next year to be “developing new areas of business and increasing market share.”
