Paddington (2014)

Paddington is the first ever live action film inspired by the 1958 children’s book by Michael Bond.

Shot at Shepperton Studios on T Stage and at the River Ash, Paddington also completed post production work at Pinewood Post Production. This included foley, voice record and re-recording mix.

Starring BAFTA Award-nominee Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Iris, Notting Hill)  as Mr Brown, Academy Award-winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man, Bridget Jones’s Diary) as the voice of Paddington Bear and Academy Award-winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Rabbit Hole, Moulin Rouge) as the evil taxidermist determined to wreak her revenge. The cast are joined by Golden Globe Award-winner Sally Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky, Layer Cake, Made in Dagenham) as Mrs Brown and Academy Award-nominee Julie Walters (Billy Elliot, Educating Rita, Harry Potter) Mrs Bird the housekeeper and Academy award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Harry Potter, The Iron Lady) to play Mr Gruber the owner of the antiques shop.

The story follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is no tall he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck (‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’) and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.
