London – LipSync Post, a Soho postproduction facility, has been awarded the contract to provide full post-production services on the forthcoming UK/South African co-production feature film, Dark Tide. The thriller, directed by John Stockwell (Into The Blue, Blue Crush), stars Halle Berry as a diving instructor who returns to deep waters after a near-fatal encounter with a Great White shark. The film is being produced by Jeanette Buerling, Matthew Chausse and Chris Curling; Curling previously worked with LipSync on Wah Wah and Five Children and It. The film began shooting in South Africa four weeks ago, and the offline edit is expected to start in September, with full post swinging into action at the start of 2011. “We are excited to have won the post contract for Dark Tide, which promises to be an interesting project to work on,” said Kevin Phelan, Head of Post Production, LipSync Post. “While it’s a bit early to reveal details, the film is likely to demand a lot of contrast in the grade between sunny shores and murky depths, as well as some interesting underwater audio work.”
