1 February 2007

Skyworks is delighted to announce the appointment of Massimo Moretti to the newly created position of Archive Manager.

Massimo joins from Fremantle Archive Sales and will be responsible for managing the licensing of Skyworks’ High Definition aerial footage worldwide and positioning Skyworks as the leading supplier of HD aerial imagery globally.

“Massimo’s significant experience in the sector together with his clear, committed vision for the company’s HD aerial archive makes him a perfect addition to our growing team,” says Damian Keogh, Managing Director of Skyworks. “We are all delighted to have him on board and share his enthusiasm and excitement for the anticipated period of growth ahead.”

"Skyworks are in a strong position to be to be amongst the leaders in the HD footage licensing world,” says Massimo Moretti “their striking imagery with its cutting edge technical quality is perfectly suited for the rapidly evolving digital environment but works beautifully within the traditional production models."

Massimo Moretti is originally from Italy where he graduated in Film Studies. His UK work experience includes the BBC and more recently FremantleMedia Limited.

Notes to Editors:

Skyworks is an independent production company specializing in top end High Definition aerial filming. The company has become one of the world's leading HD aerial archives. On the television side, Skyworks produces a range of factual programmes, varying from series about history, landscape and heritage to observational documentaries.

Skyworks is a world leader in the production and supply of top-end aerial footage. The company has amassed a large international high-definition archive of gyrostablised aerial footage of exceptional quality. The archive is expanding at a great rate, with massive variety already in both subject matter and locations - much of Europe is already well covered with more territories (and subject matter) constantly being added to the collection. All the footage is filmed at the highest quality - 25 frames "progressive" on HDCAM SR at 1080 4:4:4 - and intercuts seamlessly with 35mm film, as well as downconverting perfectly to lesser formats.

Skyworks has produced nearly 100 factual programmes for international broadcasters, including the BBC, ITV and Discovery.
