Our deliverables pipeline is built around custom workflow and job tracking tools that make complex delivery a breeze. Nice Dissolve offers a substantial range of in-house services, and has established relationships with outside providers to cover additional services, making ND a one-stop shop for delivering almost any project, whether destined for the web, broadcast, or the big screen.

With the lower overhead of our Brooklyn location and the efficiency of our pipeline, we can save many films delivering to major US or foreign distributors tens of thousands of dollars over the rates charged by large Manhattan or LA facilities.
