MPC win tape-to-film transfer contract for Danny Boyle film

Following a pitch against a number of European facilities, the Moving Picture Company (MPC) have been awarded the full length tape-to-film transfer of Twentieth Century Fox’s feature '28 Days Later', which is directed by Danny Boyle ('The Beach', 'Trainspotting').
Prior to transfer onto 35mm film, Danny Boyle graded the DV originated feature over a two-week period with MPC’s top colourist Jean-Clement Soret using the company’s recently acquired Cintel DSX.
'28 Days Later' was shot on DV cam – a medium that is becoming increasingly popular in the industry.
MPC’s ongoing success in its FilmTel Laser division has also led to expansion and recruitment in this area. It has just opened a new FilmTel Suite and taken on two dedicated operators – Richard Etchells and Matt Packham – and a dedicated software engineer – John Frith. Producers Begoña Lopez and Matthew Bristowe continue to oversee the division.
The new, fully calibrated suite comes with updated FilmTel software including its real-time illegal colour corrector, 2d Shake hi-res compositing facilities with a 300 plus render farm and Arri Laser film output.
Tape to film credits for Filmtel Laser have included trailers such as 'Bend It Like Beckham', 'Baise-moi' and 'Mike Basett: England Manager' and commercials for Sony PlayStation, Apple, adidas, Agent Provocateur and Stella Artois. The division is also working on a second feature, an animated film – 'Otherworld' directed by Derek Hayes ('The Miracle Maker').
