The international crime drama Gomorrah has chosen WCPMedia Services for media management.

Gomorrah 28 dec 2017A co-production of Sky, Cattleya and Fandango, the show is using WCPMedia’s cloud-based platform to manage delivery of show assets from its editorial team to showrunners, and to visual effects, sound and post-production service providers.

Now in its third season, Gomorrah is based on the novel by journalist Roberto Saviano, and focuses on mob violence in Naples. With a cast of gangsters, drug dealers and ordinary people, the show paints a gritty portrait of street-level crime and its hierarchical organisation as players struggle for recognition, money and power.

Sky Italia has released two episodes from season three to cinemas, before their television debut, and they promptly shot to No 1 at the Italian box office. Season three is written by Leonardo Fasoli, Maddalena Ravagli and Ludovica Rampoldi, and directed by Francesca Comencini and Claudio Cupellini.

The show’s editorial department is using WCPMedia’s platform to deliver rough cuts and finished scenes to third-party, post-production vendors. Finished cuts are moved from the cutting stage to dubbing studios, visual effects houses and finishing facilities as low-res proxies and uncompressed video, along with other assets. Additionally, series creators, showrunners and producers are able to review work-in-progress via ‘screening rooms’ integrated into the WCPMedia platform.

Cattleya previously used WCPMedia Services to manage media assets for Suburra, the first original Italian television series produced for Netflix.

“We are pleased to reunite with Cattleya and its post-production team on another high-profile project, Gomorrah,” said WCPMedia VP of operations, Giovanni Contri. “Suburra used our platform during more than 12 months of shooting and post. The fact that they selected us again is an honour, and demonstrates the value WCP provides to complex, high quality productions.”
