Salford television facility dock10 has appointed Ian Dodd as its new head of post production.

Dodd has worked in the industry for over 25 years, and was a founder and joint managing director of The Farm. 

dock10 has also bolstered its post production team with additional appointments.

Joining from The Farm are post producers Kellie Sanders and Kirby Dunlop, and from Chief comes Liz Hird.

Robin Cowap, previously at Flix, joins as dubbing mixer and Rachelle Noel, formerly from Envy, is heading up edit support.

They will work across dock10’s projects including prime-time dramas, popular entertainment shows, children’s animation and tv commercials.

Mark Senior, CEO of dock10, said: "The post production landscape is changing faster than ever, bringing exciting new opportunities for our business. Content is being commissioned by a wider range of international organisations, broadcasters and OTT streaming providers, and is increasingly being created for global audiences across an array of devices and platforms….We are determined to grow further and now need to be looking at opportunities in the wider market – Ian has all the experience, connections and skills we need to drive our ambitions."

Dodd said: "With its unique combination of studios and post production facilities, dock10 is strongly positioned to take advantage of the changes in the market.”

News of Dodd’s appointment comes as The Farm prepares to open a facility in Manchester, headed by former dock10 head of post Paul Austin.
