NAB Colorworks, Sony Pictures Entertainments’ DI facility, is working with
several service providers to offer 4K workflow support for Sony’s F65
CineAlta digital motion picture camera.
|Colour management and colour grading developer FilmLight, camera supplier Otto Nemenz, production services company The Creative-Cartel and post production services provider Technicolor are involved in the effort, whose aim is to support productions using the F65 from the camera to the screen. The companies have developed a workflow based on the ACES format utilizing their complementary services and encompassing such processes as data recording and backup, on-set and near-set dailies processing, post production deliverables and digital intermediate colour grading and finishing.|
|The F65 workflow is being used in the latest film from the production company Overbrook Entertainment and Blinding Edge Pictures’ director M. Night Shyamalan, ‘After Earth’, which is being shot in Costa Rica and in Philadelphia. The workflow is focused on on-set recording of camera data and metadata, near-set dailies processing and post production digital intermediate services. ‘After Earth’ is the first theatrical feature to be captured with the F65.|
|Colorworks has been developing F65 workflows for more than a year. It provided dailies processing and colour grading services for ‘The Arrival’, a short film produced to show the capabilities of the F65 to NAB visitors last April. Colorworks has also been involved in an F65 training program for directors, cinematographers and producers, ongoing on the Sony Pictures Studios lot. www.sonypictures.com http://pro.sony.com.au|
