The Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) has honored SGO's Mistika with the prized 2016 HPA Engineering Excellence Awards at the prestigious HPA Awards in Los Angeles, California.

Geoff Mills, managing director at SGO, said: "We are thrilled to have our unique post-production solution Mistika recognized by the HPA and the industry at-large. To be recognized by the HPA for Engineering Excellence, validates the years of research and development that our team has dedicated — and continues to dedicate — to Mistika to ensure it is the industry's best finishing toolset, ready to work with the most demanding and sophisticated productions."

In addition to the Engineering Excellence Awards, the HPA Awards recognized excellence in 12 craft categories that include color grading, editing, sound, and visual effects. SGO congratulates Herb Dow on receiving the HPA 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award and Michelle Munson as recipient of The Charles S. Swartz Award.
