Committee Films recently called on long-time postproduction partner Splice to collaborate on the new television series In An Instant, a two-hour docudrama premiering on ABC on March 6.
The series focuses on survival stories of people staring death in the face with breathtaking dramatizations and first-person interviews.
The series relies heavily on dramatic re-enactments, including complex visual effects, sound effects and editing hundreds of hours of interviews. Splice’s contribution is the combined effort of over 20 Splice artists, project managers and technicians. By the time the last episode of In An Instant airs, Splice will have been working on the series for more than seven months.
Splice provided all the postproduction work for the series including sound design and mix, visual effects, color grading, edit finishing, preparing each episode to meet ABC’s broadcast standards, mastering for digital delivery to the network and designing the program open and onscreen graphics. Committee Films handled the creative editorial on all episodes except for “Grizzly Attack,” which was edited by Splice’s Chadwick Nelson.
“Committee Films has been a great partner for six years now, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them on In An Instant,'” said Splice partner Barb Condit. “As always, we’ve refined our creative process to realize their vision, and In An Instant gives us a chance to try a few new things. We see this as a ground-breaking project that will allow us to grow, particularly in the VFX area.”
