Traditional post facilities devolve responsibility for your film onto multiple staff members whose names you may never learn, and gate your access to them through account reps or other go-betweens. This structure may have been required 15 years ago, when digital post required a half a dozen narrow specialists and millions of dollars of equipment. Today, however, it's an unnecessary barrier to creative collaboration.
We operate on a very different structure, developed from our experience finishing over 100 feature films. Your Nice Dissolve colorist will serve as the primary point-person for your film. You'll have direct access to a creative professional who takes responsibility for everything from initial conform to final graded master, backed up by the resources of a full-service post facility.
The facility you choose should never limit the talent you have access to, so if you have a freelance colorist you prefer to work with, we can also make all the same resources available to them.
Our DI theater features a 14 foot screen, seats up to 10 people, and has a 2K DCI cinema projector with full support for both Rec. 709 and P3 grading workflows. With over 250 TB of shared storage and a 28-core workstation with multiple NVIDIA TITAN X graphics processors, we can easily handle advanced file-based workflows, including real-time grading with 4K+ native camera raw formats.
When your film is done, we can handle disc and web screener creation and festival DCP authoring and replication.
For final delivery to a distributor or sales agent, our unique Filmflow service can create the myriad of file- and tape-based elements required, and track them — and even paperwork delivery elements like contracts — through every stage of the delivery process, saving days that might otherwise be spent exchanging emails about confusing delivery requirements.
