THE POST LOUNGE IS RESIN THE BAR



Award-winning Brisbane-based post-production studio, The Post Lounge has combined forces with VFX powerhouse, Resin.

One of Australia’s most recognised film and television post-production facilities, The Post Lounge (TPL), announced a new partnership with VFX studio, Resin last week. Both companies are renowned in their respective fields for delivering high quality film and television services.

As a part of the new arrangement, TPL’s General Manager Kurt Royan joins Resin as company director and executive producer. Royan will oversee the expansion of Resin into Brisbane and Melbourne.

In 2018, TPL completed post on a number of feature films including Stan’s first original feature film, The Second, acclaimed comedy special for Netflix, Hannah Gadsby: Nanette, as well as TV dramas Safe Harbour and The Family Law Series 3. Resin supervised and produced the VFX on the Netflix Original series Tidelands filmed in Brisbane, as well as on the recent remake of classic Australian feature film Storm Boy, in theatres now.

Both companies are ramping up for combined post and VFX on an exciting new US series, the first production to take advantage of the new alliance. The expansion of Resin into Queensland and Victoria maximises TPL’s service offering to clients providing a wider talent pool of artists across the country and the ability to engage face-to-face with clients in these states.

Each company will continue to operate independently, allowing The Post Lounge to remain focussed on high-quality picture and sound post, with Resin delivering VFX. TPL and Resin will now offer a pipeline between the two companies and across the three states, creating more efficiencies in post and VFX workflows, simplifying communications, whilst each maintaining specialised services.

More rebate opportunities will be available as a result of The Post Lounge and Resin partnership for producers applying for both Australian federal and state incentives in South Australia and Queensland, bringing the rebate to 40% on post and VFX spend in Australia.
