Ariel Prize Singles Out Mistika Film

A Spanish feature film titled Map of the Sounds of Tokyo (Mapa de los sonidos de Tokio), post-produced at Molinare using Mistika, is a candidate for nomination of the Ariel Prize 2010 awarded by the Mexican Film Academy.
The film was also one of three films selected as finalists by the Spanish Film Academy as potential Oscar nominees to represent Spain in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. Although one of the other films was selected for an Oscar nomination, it is an incredible accolade for the film to be chosen by the Spanish Film Academy as one of Spain's top three films.
The Ariel Prize Award 2010 will take place in Mexico in March next year with nominees being announced in February 2010.
Map of the Sounds of Tokyo, which has also recently won a coveted technical artist Cannes award, was written and directed by internationally acclaimed Director Isabel Coixet and produced by Jaume Roures, Javier Mendez and Bernat Elias. Director of Photography Jean Claude Larrieu shot the film using the RED One Camera in 4K.
Complete post-production of the film was achieved using Mistika at Molinare, which involved conforming; the creation of digital effects; colour grading; Digital Intermediate (DI); as well as the coordination and supervision of the photochemical laboratory through to delivery of the final version.
Mistika's real-time play-out and 4k resolution, especially in relation to RED One camera footage, enabled the Mistika artists to conform; colour grade and post produce directly from the R3D files with no need to convert the RED raw file footage in external tools.
Production Manager Carlos Cervera, who worked on the cinema project at Molinare, confirmed: "Owing to the fact that Mistika enabled us to work directly with the RED raw files meant that our colour grading time was significantly reduced by three weeks and we were way ahead of schedule.
"Mistika, with its versatility and efficiency, delivered the results in our time demanding world of cinema post production."
The post team at Molinare benefited from Mistika's functionality and remarkable speed for this project especially with regard to Mistika's ability to handle RED raw data files in 4K in real-time.
The film is about Ryu, a solitary woman, whose fragile appearance is in stark contrast with the double life she leads, working at a Tokyo fish market at night and sporadically taking on jobs as a hit-woman. Map of the Sounds of Tokyo was released for public viewing on cinema circuits from August 22, 2009.
