Mistika Used In Award-Winning Park Road

SGO's Mistika technology was used for all the DI and Stereo 3D post production by industry leading post production company Park Road Post in The Adventures of Tintin.
All digital intermediate work in both 2D and Stereo 3D was achieved using Mistika, which included colour grading, conforming, convergence adjustments and hand-offs between shots. Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, the film is based on the series of books 'The Adventures of Tintin' by Hergé and is also produced by Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, with Ken Kamins, Hergé Estate’s Nick Rodwell and Stephane Sperry as executive producers.
A real highlight of the post process on The Adventures of Tintin, was that the film-makers were able to offer approvals remotely. Mistika's role was an important one, as speed was a crucial factor in making the approval process work fluidly, no matter where the film-makers were in the world. The ability to output ongoing and work-in-progress (WIP's) versions of the film easily and quickly, without actually slowing or stalling the DI process, was key.
Park Road Head of Picture and Senior Colourist, David Hollingsworth explained: "The open structure of the Mistika platform, the speed of its toolset and SAN-based workflow meant that we could be working on shots as soon as they were handed over from Weta Digital and have the 2D and 3D grades working concurrently."
David added: "The flexibility of the system also meant that I could be grading while Senior Online Editor, Rob Gordon could be conforming new shots into to the cut, and at the same time, Stereoscopic artist, Meetal Gokul could continue the convergence hand-offs and other stereo work. All of this happened as we were outputting WIP’s for the Directors approval overseas. I don’t see how any other single-solution DI system could have allowed us such speed and flexibility."
