Loving Miss Hatto

This powerful €2m Victoria Wood-scripted drama is a biopic of reclusive British pianist Joyce Hatto, whose husband was responsible for a notorious musical fraud, passing off dozens of recordings by other artists as his wife’s work.

Produced by Ireland’s Octagon Films and Britain’s Left Bank Films, the film was shot on-location in Dublin and Wicklow. Francesca Annis (The Libertine) plays the eponymous Joyce Hatto, while former Doctor Octopus, Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2), plays her husband Barrie. Other cast members include Rory Kinnear (Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall), who plays young Barrie and Maimie McCoy (Wallander, The Libertine), who plays young Joyce.

Full picture and sound post production on the project took place here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound in 2012 where it was Edited by Alex Mackie with Dermot Grace assisting

Gary Curran supplied the Grade with Warren Dowling Finishing, while John Stevenson was Sound Designer on the project, and Michelle Cuniffe edited the Dialogue.

Final Sound Mix was completed by Garret Farrell in Screen Scene’s Centre Stage 1.

Screen Scene provided all the visual effects for this fascinating story.
