Goldcrest Post (Goldcrest) has signalled its intention to enter the globally renowned UK Picture Post arena with the appointment of Patrick Malone as Managing Director. The announcement was made today by Chris Quested, who will now serve as CEO of Goldcrest Post.

Based in London, Patrick will oversee the accelerated growth of the company’s Digital Intermediate (D.I.) department in addition to strengthening the executive management of the existing award winning sound facility, home to the Academy Award winning team from Les Misérables.

Malone most recently served as Head of DI at Company 3, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services and a pioneering provider of post production services to all the major studios, where he was responsible for their award winning work on feature films collaborating with some of the most acclaimed filmmakers working today including Ron Howard on Rush, Sam Mendes on Skyfall, Tom Hooper on Les Misérables and with Paul Greengrass on Captain Phillips. 

“All the awards confirm Goldcrest Post has a long and enviable track record for their sound work. This is an incredible opportunity to add London’s premier picture facility to their client offering. I’m thrilled to be joining Chris and the team and I can’t wait to get started” said Malone. 

Chris Quested noted “It is very exciting to have Patrick join us at Goldcrest Post. He has a unique record of achievement in his field… this unrivalled depth of knowledge and expertise will play a key role in our aggressive on-going expansion”.

This news comes at a busy time for the Group as a whole. Goldcrest Films is fully financing and distributing The Autopsy of Jane Doe, director Andre Ovredal’s hotly anticipated English Language follow up to his acclaimed international hit Troll Hunter and they recently announced they will be financing and distributing Brooklyn Bridge to which Daniel Radcliffe is attached to star, starting at the forthcoming European Film Market in Berlin.
