TALKING SHOP: French documentary maker Clarke, Costelle & Co has made its name for remastering archive footage in both colour and HD. In this edition of Talking Shop president Louis Vaudeville talks about the company's two forthcoming projects.
CC&C has already produced Apocalypse: Second World War and is now working on Apocalypse: The Rise of Hitler for France Télévisions, TV5 in Canada and National Geographic International channels. Vaudeville is now working on Apocalypse: World War One for the same broadcasters and exclusively revealed to Talking Shop that plans are already in place for Apocalypse: Cold War, which should be ready by 2016.
“We have completed the research for Apocalypse: World War One; we have 400 hours of footage to edit to four hours. The quality is not so bad, so we can do HD from this archive. I think the quality will be very impressive. We are looking for US broadcasters and are already working on the research for the following one. We are preparing a series on the Cold War, from 1945 to 1990, which will be for 2016 or 2017."
