Inside the KKK

Barcroft Productions Channel 4 23.07.15

Full post production on 1x60’ observational documentary

In their first broadcast commission for Channel 4, Barcroft Productions has secured exclusive access to the ‘Traditionalist American Knights’- a Missouri-based modern-day faction of the notorious Ku Klux Klan- at a time when, following the Ferguson Riots, they are actively attempting to recruit a broader and younger membership.

The film will hear from and challenge the normally reticent KKK members. Offering a unique insight into an extreme organisation that many believe disbanded generations ago, the film will question the involvement in a movement that has received widespread condemnation for deplorable acts.

Perry Gibbs graded the one-off documentary with the Nucoda Film Master, using a combination of overlay and brightness contrast to give a specific texture to programme. Gibbs’ objective was to achieve high contrast whilst maintaining highlight details for a print-like look.

Nick Fry mixed the audio with Pro Tools 11 and Mark Redfern completed the online with avid symphony
