Big Pic Media Completes Colour Grading Suite

Big Pic Media has completed a colour grading suite at iGene Media's global headquarters in Chiswick Park, London.

The recently established venture perfectly synchronises with the company’s Chennai and Singapore-based offerings to continue to offer high-end post production facilities.

iGene Media offers a wide range of creative services including visual effects, colour grading, and animation. The company has made significant contributions to Hollywood films and streaming channel content, most recently Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Star Wars: Ashoka, and the live action adaptation of the One Piece anime for Netflix, amongst countless others. Furthermore, with significant studio space in Chennai, India, iGene has a major stake in both South Indian and Bollywood films. Because of its geographical placement and cloud-based seamless workflows, the company is able to offer global support to its clients 24/7. iGene Media’s most recent addition, an Advanced DaVinci Resolve suite in Chiswick Park, continues to build upon the company’s award-winning colour grading capabilities alongside two additional Resolve suites and two Baselight suites already established in Chennai.

"This new colour grading suite forms a part of our development strategy as we expand the London premises from a primarily administrative site into a fully-fledged production and post production centre," said Phillip Covell, Chief Commercial Officer at iGene Media London. "We have commissioned a system which will provide the technical and operational resources needed to handle a wide range of content including commercials, shortform and longform features, plus documentaries as well as social media platforms. The iGene Media client list includes many of the Hollywood majors and large-scale online streaming providers. Our London facility is ideally placed to support customers in Europe and America, supplementing the services of our colleagues in India and Singapore."

"Big Pic Media provided a proposal that we recognised would meet not only our requirements in terms of quality, efficiency and versatility, that we could offer our clients, but would fit in seamlessly to our existing workflows," added Kevin Doogan, iGene's Head of Operations in the UK. "Adam Welsh and his colleagues recommended a solution comprising a Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve plus a Sony BVM-HX310 dual-layer LCD reference monitor and Sony A95K OLED client viewing monitor. They followed up with a detailed demonstration including the Resolve Advanced Panel which confirmed that the system would meet our most demanding expectations. Big Pic Media completed installation into the pre-prepared suite in a single day. A lot of current demand is for 2K in standard dynamic range but an important aspect of our work will be high-end HDR in 2K and 4K for customers keen to maximise the commercial lifetime of their television and digital film creations."
