“I couldn’t be any more excited or prouder to be joining Twickenham Film Studios during this time of expansion and new era for the business. I have always thought so highly of the multi awarded studios and their legacy of such iconic work as The Italian Job and Bohemian Rhapsody as well as seeing their involvement in the likes of Oscar nominated features – Belfast, House of Gucci and No Time To Die. I look forward to joining the talented team and working on highly acclaimed directed and hugely creative projects so as to further build out the TFS Picture post offering and reputation.”, says Sarah.
Head of Production Cherri Arpino adds:
“We are thrilled to have Sarah join our studios adding to our expanding Post Production Picture team here at TFS.

Established by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Global Movie Day takes place every year on the second Saturday of February every year. This annual celebration aims to give film fans around the world a national day to celebrate their favorite features. This year, Global Movie Day takes place on Saturday 12 February.
Although we enjoy films every day of the year, we thought we’d highlight some of our TFS MD Cara Sheppard‘s top picks on Global Movie Day!
What’s your guilty watch at the moment?
Probably latest season of Ozark or After Life. And I couldn’t possibly confirm or deny if I binge watched all of ‘Emily in Paris’ in 2 days over Christmas!
What do you love most about movies?
The escapism and it takes you to another place. I think that’s something we’ve all needed at times in the past couple of years!
“What’s your favourite scary movie”?
Cape Fear – its brilliant! Both the original and the remake are very well done.
If you had to pick, would you go for a silent, a black and white or a 3D film?
Probably black and white. I used to love old B&W Hollywood Movies – the ‘Maltese Falcon’, ‘Casablanca’, ‘Brief Encounter’ – it was watching those that had a certain old Hollywood glamour to them that made me want to start working in the film industry.
If you could only choose one, what would be one of your favourite films TFS worked on?
The Italian Job – Michael Caine at his finest!
What are you planning to watch on #GlobalMovieDay?
Probably something we have worked on more recently that I haven’t had time to watch yet, like Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Belfast’ or ‘Last Night in Soho’ which are both up for Oscar and Bafta nominations shortly. Very excited to see both of those!
Check our work page for more inspiration on what to watch today.

Throwback to 2016 film Being, written and directed by Devlin Crow which was shot in London and Brighton in the late summer of 2016.
Being tells the story of Buddy, a young boy struggling to have a childhood while being a full-time carer for his mum with Multiple Sclerosis – until a new friend helps him live out an old dream.
Craig Irving mixed the short film, with fellow TFS Re-recording Mixer Wil Miller.
“This was a very special collaboration with Twickenham Film Studios and the TFS team supported me in getting the mix created,” says Devlin “I have wonderful memories of that time and working with Craig and William.”
Since the short was completed, the rock band The Who also supported the short film, for which they provided their music and have endorsed it as a recognised spin off from ‘Quadrophenia’.
