Boutique post house HIJACK has upped Nic Turton to be its new Director of Digital Production Services, with a remit to develop and grow HIJACK’s on-set services.

Turton is promoted from his role as DIT and Live Colourist.

Turton began his career at Cape Town post house The Video Lounge where he worked on international brand commercials, as well as long-form projects ranging from documentaries to indie short films and feature films. He later co-founded Treehouse Recording Studios and Treehouse Post Production, where he worked with acclaimed South African artists. He also co-founded Post Office Post Production, an award-winning boutique post facility.

As a freelancer, Turton developed a broad skill set that encompasses everything from camera work to the post-production pipeline and final delivery. Since moving to the UK he has worked with HIJACK as a Digital Imaging Technician and Live Colourist for international clients.

In his new role as Director of Digital Production Services, he will oversee the roll-out of new services and ensure that the company’s DITs have access to the best equipment. He will also lead the upgrade of HIJACK’s fleet of independently powered mobile labs.

“I am thrilled to join HIJACK as its Director of Digital Production Services,” said Nic. “HIJACK is such an innovative company, and I am excited to work with the team to deliver cutting-edge digital services to our clients.”

“We are delighted to have Nic on board in his new role” said HIJACK’s Managing Director Rich Simpson. “We have so many plans to expand our Digital Production Services division, and Nic’s vast practical knowledge and experience in the field will help us continue to provide our clients with the highest quality services.”
