SGO's Mistika has been selected by Digimage Cinema for post production including colour grading of the new film from French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet.
The film is being digitally re-mastered in IMAX 3D format using Mistika, with plans for release on 16 October 2013 across IMAX theatres in France.
The film was shot using ARRI ALEXA cameras in stereoscopic 3D and Director of Photography Thomas Hardmeier used Mistika Live on set for the production.
Mistika is currently being used in post at Digimage for the conforming, colour grading and full post production of the entire project for all the deliverables in multiple resolutions and formats including IMAX 3D.
Stereographer Demetri Portelli is responsible for the depth grading throughout the movie using Mistika, working alongside the team of Mistika artists at Digimage - Hussam Korkut and Caique DeSouza with Mistika Colourist Fabrice Blin.
Digimage Cinema's Technical Manager Francois Dupuy says: "We are using Mistika on this high profile project for all the colour grading, which is achieving stylish results. All the multi format deliverables will be completed using Mistika in HD, 2D, Stereo 3D, and IMAX 3D. Mistika has the perfect toolsets for this mammoth project with its ability to handle giant size formats across all dimensions such as IMAX 3D. Its speed and efficiency is remarkable and a tremendous help to deliver exceptional results for an incredibly high calibre project that needs to meet the highest standards to tight deadlines."
"The French film industry is vibrant and growing with an increasing demand for Mistika owing to its reputation as a reliable, powerful colour grading asset," adds Jose Luis Acha, SGO’s Regional Sales Manager.
"Digimage Cinema invested in Mistika last year where it was put straight to work on their Asterix film project, which was a great success. Digimage have also just installed a Mistika 3D Assist Station from SGO recently and it is incredibly exciting to see Mistika’'s colour grading capabilities being used on yet another world-class film such as this, directed by an acclaimed director like Jean-Pierre Jeunet."
