Post house, Evolutions, is expanding its offering for high-end documentary with new investment and hires.

The company has invested £200,000 in Flame facilities and hired three new editors following the recent expansion of its flagship Sheraton Street facility.

Des Murray, previously Head of Editing at Molinare will join Evolutions on January 18th as a Senior Flame Artist heading up work on the Flames. Murray’s experience includes recent hit documentaries such as Netflix’s “Don’t F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer” and “Memories of a Murderer: The Nilson Tapes”, as well as BBC’s “The Trials of Oscar Pistorius” and “Football’s Darkest Secret”. Murray will be based in the Sheraton Street Facility.

Based out of the Soho facilities, Laurence Thripp, previously Senior Online Editor at Molinare has joined as a Senior Online Editor. Thripp’s portfolio of work includes Amazon Prime Videos’ “Uprising”, BBC’s “Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic” and Sky Original’s “Queen of Speed”.

Afzal Ali also joined in December last year as an Editor. Ali’s experience includes popular titles such as BBC’s “Don’t Tell The Bride”, “MasterChef” and TLC’s “Most Extreme”, and prior to being freelance, Ali worked at Molinare.

The new Flame facilities will enable Evolutions to “further expand into the high-end documentary genre,” following projects including BBC One’s “Serengeti”, BBC America’s “Meerkat Manor” and Sky’s “Gangs of Baboon Falls”.

Simon Kanjee, CEO of Evolutions: “We are thrilled to continue the expansion of our team with these incredible new additions. Our growth in high-end documentaries represents a new era for us at Evolutions, and we are proud to have such a strong line up of talent to kick-start this for us this year. In addition, our new Flame facilities are demonstrative of our commitment to our new talent and our continued development as an industry leading force in the post-production space.”
