Studio l'Equipe Relies On Mistika For Colour Grading Toolsets

As part of the on-going expansion of digital acquisition, Brussels-based Studio l’Equipe, one of Belgium’s leading post production facilities has invested in SGO's Mistika to meet the demands of a rapidly changing and highly competitive feature film market.
Studio l'Equipe has installed a Mistika 4K system with a Mistika Assist station, to help accelerate the post production process by allowing simultaneous access to Mistika projects for ingest, online functions and the creation of deliverables, without disturbing the master Mistika system. Both Mistikas are connected to a 72TB SAN storage system.
Marking its 50th anniversary this year, Studio l’Equipe is the only full service post production studio in Belgium to offer comprehensive post production facilities at a single site.
The company's various departments consist of state-of-the-art film, rushes and digital labs offering editing, colour grading, sound, subtitling and screening services. There are three branches; one in France and two sites in Belgium. The Film and HD rushes lab provides complete digital dailies solutions that integrate the storage, back-up, transcoding and quality control of rushes.
To keep up with fast-growing industry trends, Studio l’Equipe required a versatile tool that could go well beyond colour grading, and made the decision to invest in Mistika.
CEO of Studio l'Equipe, Philippe Bosman states: "We have literally acquired one of the best colour grading systems around from SGO - the Mistika, as used on high profile international film projects that include Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin; Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy and closer to home Asterix and Obelix: On Her Majesty’s Service." He expands further "The past 5 years have brought a significant change in the industry, with increasingly advanced high-end digital cameras, and the challenges that come with them, which include file capture and colour space formats. Digital projection has also taken over from 35mm at tremendous speed, bringing new exciting developments such as 48 or 60 frames per second and 4K technology, where Mistika leads in this area."
Philippe Bosman adds: "With Mistika, we have a powerful system that has the capability to fulfil many functions that include compositing, DCP creation, exporting video formats, carrying-out out 3D colorimetric and geometric corrections and, above all, handling most capture formats in native form. Mistika is a complete system capable of responding to the current and future changes in our profession and is truly unique."
Jose Luis Acha, Regional Sales Manager at SGO concludes: "We are delighted that Studio l'Equipe has placed Mistika at the centre of their colour grading chain to complete their workflow pipeline. Studio l'Equipe was looking to invest in a post production solution with the additional benefits of first-rate colour grading and the option of stereoscopic 3D functionality, which they found in Mistika. SGO’s technology is ahead of the game in DI and stereoscopic editing and is considered an asset for forward thinking companies such as Studio l'Equipe, that plan ahead."
Films and documentaries currently being post produced using Mistika at Studio l'Equipe include Welcome to Fukushima, Le Prix du Pain, Algerian feature Titi, Chez Nous, C'est 3, Dutch feature Zwarte Zee and short film titled Eliot.
The company has worked on many other feature film projects with titles that include Number Station, A Perdre la Raison; Little Black Spiders; Sammy 2 3D and Maddened by his Absence.
