Former Director of Scripted Sales at The Farm, Harriet Dale, is joining Coffee & TV’s longform offshoot, Residence Pictures, as Commercial Director and Co-founder.

Recently, former Freefolk colourist, Paul Harrison, and ex Fifty Fifty Head of Picture, Julian Nelson, were announced as founding partners of Residence Pictures that will launch in the Spring with Cara Kotschy as MD.

Dale has over 30 years experience in production and post production for both TV & Film. She started her career in short form production before moving to the drama department at the BBC where she spent 7 years as a Production coordinator and Production Manager. She then moved into Post Production as a Post Supervisor before joining St Anne’s Post, now part of Company 3, where she remained for 11 years as Head of Production.

Most recently Dale was responsible for growing the scripted department at The Farm by securing and post producing major episodic series including I May Destroy You, All Creatures Great and Small and The Split.

Harriet Dale said: “I’m really looking forward to launching this new and exciting company and helping to shape the future of post”

Residence Pictures will launch in the Spring with a sole focus on picture finishing in the high-end episodic, feature and drama markets. Forming part of the Coffee & TV group of companies, the service offering will comprise end to end workflow planning and execution, colour grading, online, QC and delivery with invisible and specialist visual effects provided by Coffee and TV.

Residence Pictures will also establish a training academy to offer practical training for young people who are under-represented and marginalised within the industry.

Cara Kotschy said: ‘Harriet’s experience spanning 30 years making premium content is second to none. She is incredibly knowledgeable, very well loved in the industry and extremely well connected. She is the perfect co-founder to help us launch residence with success and I’m delighted to be working with her.’
