Channel 4 has named the six people taking part in 4 Post Production, its scheme to improve diversity in post and tech.

Harfun Li, Jay Francis, Wayne Urquhart, Heather Andrews, Lorene Dewett and Sophie Larkin will each receive mentoring, skills gap training and shadowing and placement opportunities with indies when the six-month scheme kicks off next month.

Announced in May, the scheme is the first of its kind to be offered by C4, and was developed by C4’s creative designer with dialogue editor, dubbing mixer and inclusion campaigner Emma Butt.

C4 creative diversity lead Neila Butt said the aim was for the scheme to “act as both inspiration and a template for other areas of the industry to use to help boost the careers of people who are under-represented in post-production”. 

Editor Harfun Li’s credits include HullraisersTaskmaster, Great Canal Journeys and Play Your Pets Right, while online editor Jay Francis has worked on Escape to the Country, Embarrassing Bodies, How to Look Good Naked and 10 Years Younger.

Lorene Dewett has edited many drama short films, including two which were funded by the BFI Network Short Film fund, while Sophie Larkin-Tannetta is a broadcast editor currently working on Channel 4  News. 

Wayne Urquhart is a re-recording mixer, who was head of audio at A+E Networks EMEA for six years and has since been freelancing as a dubbing mixer.

Scotland-based Heather Andrews is a sound designer, sound effects editor and dubbing mixer who has worked across high-end television drama, documentaries and feature films.
