‘A journey within a journey - A man’s attempt to conquer the Rift Valley. A sons attempt to understand his father.’
OnSight have loved working alongside Louis Devereux to cover full post production on the feature Documentary The Rift, including conform, online, audio, grade and deliverables, with a theatrical finish.
The Writer, Director and Producer for this feature doc is Louis Devereux, with William Honeyball as the Editor, Ludo Brockway as the Cinematographer and James Smith as the Composer.
The Save the Rhino team came up with the idea of walking the Rift Valley, in September 2015 Robert Devereux, father of Louis Devereux adventurer and philanthropist, set out to do it himself, attempting to become the first person in the world to do it in one go!
"The Rift" tells the stories from this unique and wonderful adventure, as well as looking into the developing father and son relationship between Robert and Louis and how it matured while in Africa. The documentary is a deeply personal look into their family life, and how Louis’s parents divorce affected their family. It has a relatable feel promoting conversations, however tricky they might be and showing that expanding your knowledge of a situation can affect a relationship for the positive.
Louis will also be donating 30% of the films profits to The African Arts Trust and Save the Rhino as both are very close to Robert's heart and tackle very serious issues within Africa.

Meeting Gorbachev had a great summer of film festivals this year, it will be distributed by A+E Network.
Feature documentary “Meeting Gorbachev” by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog and Emmy Award winning Director, André Singer.
OnSight were delighted to provide full 4K Post Production for this important feature film.
" Even for Werner Herzog, but especially for me, to tackle one of the greatest figures of the 20th Century for our film "Meeting Gorbachev" was both daunting and challenging. Relying on the skill-set of Onsight for the whole post-production process was not only essential, contributing to the global success of the film, but (hugely important) was enjoyable too. This is a post-production team at the top of their game"
The film is Werner Herzog and Mikhail Gorbachev in a conversation about history, the fall of the Soviet Union and the future of Russia embellished with black Herzogian humour.
Produced by Spring Films and Werner Herzog Film for History Films, A&E Indie Films and MDR/ARTE. Producers are Lucki Stipetic and Svetlana Palmer. It was Directed by André Singer and Werner Herzog and Edited by Michael Ellis. Richard Melman is the Executive Producer, Ulrich Brochhagen is the Executive Producer for MDR/ARTE and Molly Thompson is Executive Producer for History Films.
With his distinctive voice and his penchant for the more absurd sides of humanity, Werner Herzog is an unparalleled narrator. But in Meeting Gorbachev he is in for a fight to the finish. Herzog's conversations with the 87-year-old former head of state is epic in scope, but has a keen eye for history's small details. The greatness and fall of the Soviet Union, the Cold War, the future of Russia the ageing Gorbachev's political insight is as profound as his trust in the individual. We are reminded of how things could have turned out with this vast country. As any good Marxist knows, history is just a byword for struggle and conflict, but Gorbachev looks forward towards a possible future with peace. Herzog himself contributes his own analyses of archive material from the Soviet era, where he with black humour and a sharp eye finds the most interesting details in the midst of all the confusion. And, paradoxically, it is these details that end up being decisive.
