WCPMedia Services provided strong media exchange to speed Gomorra’s third season to completion.

Production & Post

Project requirements

Gomorrah, a gritty and violent depiction of the reality of Italian Mafia, has reached its third season on Sky Italia.

Produced by Cattleya (ITV) for Sky Italia, the series follows major critical success both of the book, by journalist Roberto Saviano, and the 2008 feature film by Matteo Garrone.

Production assets, raw materials, edited scenes and full episodes, needed to be distributed to and shared with a wide range of facilities and vendors. At the same time, the core writing team and producers needed an online viewing platform.

All of this in order to fullfill the requirements of an high profile commitment now on its third season.

WCPMedia Services’ role

WCPMedia Services has been instrumental in keeping a low overhead and full control on all media exchange among selected facilities and vendors.

Augustus Color, the Rome-based post production lab, jointly managed all of these activities with Cattleya.

Specific shots and scenes were moved through WCP from Augustus Color to Vfx houses either in full Raw or as reference files.

Completed episodes, in Avid ready DnxHd format and raw audio files, were shared by the editing team with audio post houses for dialog sweetening, adr and final mix.

The same process was also applied to provide grading, finishing and close captioning facilities, with reference video assets and EDLs straight from editorial.

Concurrently all of the producers, writers and directors could review the various iterations of each episode through our our virtual Screening Rooms.
