/Secret City

Behind the curtain of Australian politics, Secret City (2016) is a thriller-based television series, produced for Foxtel Australia by Matchbox Pictures.

Amidst rising tensions between China & the United States of America, Senior Political Journalist, Harriet Dunkley (Anna Torv), discovers a ‘secret city’ of interlocked conspiracies, putting innocent lives in danger – including her own. Working closely with Producer Joanna Werner, Director Emma Freeman and Cinematographer Mark Wareham, our post production team provided offline editorial facilities, grade, online, titles design, QC and deliverables.

“Finn Spencer makes exquisite titles that are meaningful, resonant and bear watching over and over”

Showcasing political and investigative drama at it’s finest, Secret City is a beautifully shot and graded series, polished by our Senior Colourist, Dwaine Hyde. Delivering a suspense-filled titles sequence, from Creative Director Finnegan Spencer; our artists elegantly captured the cold, dark & twisted beauty of Canberra. These titles went on to win a PromaxBDA Awards for Best Program Title Design.

Penny Chapman, Secret City’s Producer from Matchbox Pictures notes “Finn Spencer makes exquisite titles that are meaningful, resonant and bear watching over and over. He and the Cutting Edge team are wonderful creative collaborators.”
