Picture post production on the 6 x 60 minute (Summer & Winter segments) drama for HBO & Sky Atlantic, plus audio premix on three episodes.

Jude Law, Naomie Harris, Katherine Waterston, Emily Watson and Paddy Considine star in The Third Day, a unique story told three separate but interconnected parts: Summer, Autumn and Winter.

‘Summer’ sees Sam (Law), drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast. Isolated from the mainland, Sam is unable to leave the idyllic and dangerously enchanting world he has discovered, and the secretive rituals of its inhabitants bring him to grapple with experiences of loss hidden in his past through a distorted lens of the present. As boundaries between fantasy and reality fragment, his quest to unlock the truth leads the islanders to reveal a shocking secret.

Viewers will then be immersed in ‘Autumn’– an as live broadcast event created by theatrical innovators Punch Drunk shown on Sky Arts and online. ‘Autumn’ will take place over a single day, featuring cast members including Jude Law and Katherine Waterstone. Florence Welch will also feature in an acting role. Capturing events in one continuous take, this cinematic broadcast will invite viewers deeper into the mysterious world of Osea and will blur and distort the lines between what’s real and what’s not.

‘Winter’ follows Helen (Harris) who is a headstrong outsider who finds herself inextricably drawn to the island in her pursuit to seek answers. As the lines between fantasy and fact are distorted, Helen and her family are caught between the island’s splintered forces, which gives rise to a fractious battle to decide its fate.
