Nice Biscuits are an established production house offering an end to end service, tailor made to your individual needs. We offer creative development, full production services, offline editing, colour grading, CG animation, post production and visual effects, as well as clearance management and playouts, making us a complete one stop shop. This year we celebrate our 12th anniversary and during the past decade Nice Biscuits has acquired an enviable reputation for not only our nice biscuits but our nice people too. We offer a high quality and personal service which sets us apart from our larger rivals. We will always go that extra mile to accommodate our clients whilst still providing cutting edge technology operated by highly talented and experienced professionals. In these challenging times we understand that budgets aren’t always what we would like them to be and we will work with you to come up with solutions to achieve your desired results.
We are not just a service provider but aim to be an extension to your business. Our partnership approach enables the client to be hands on throughout the process and we work closely with you to drive your business objectives.
We operate Avid Adrenaline, Premiere and Final Cut Pro for offline editing. As well as their excellent skills and passion for cutting our editors are able to interpret the client’s creative vision as well as contributing ideas of their own.
We have recently upgraded our Da Vinci Resolve non linear grading system to version 12.5. The extremely powerful configuration has the capability to grade several layers of 4K Red footage in real time. We can work with all the major camera formats; Arri, Phantom, Red, C300-500-700, BMCC, 1D, 5D etc. and unlike other facilities we grade directly from the raw files meaning your images don’t lose any quality in transfer and will always have the utmost clarity and detail.
We are fully networked between our suites meaning we can grade in one suite whilst the on line is being undertaken in another suite feeding through in stages. This makes for a speedier and more efficient way of completing the post production process as everything can be done in one place, whilst still maintaining the highest standards.
With a dedicated and highly skilled team of VFX artists we can provide a suitable operator for all your visual effects requirements from a basic conform through to a 6 Flame operator masterpiece! Our equipment is continuously being upgraded and replaced so that it’s always at the forefront of technology. You won’t need to spend hours waiting for things to render as we use the very latest 2017 software; Flame Premium, Flame Assist, Flare and Nuke.
On location or in client studio packages are also available. Call for more information.
