ENCORE HOLLYWOOD LAUNCHES DI THEATER

The DI theater features a Kinoton FP30 ECII Studio Series electronic 35mm film projector, a Barco DP100 2K DLP digital projector, and a da Vinci 2K Plus color correction system. A recently added Spirit 2K data scanner supports high-resolution scanning. The facility has also developed a high definition data dailies service based on MTI’s Control Dailies product.The combination of these services allows Encore to work with film clients from start to finish. Directors and cinematographers are able to collaborate with a single DI colorist in establishing their desired look from HD dailies through final delivery. In addition, Encore (www.encorehollywood.com) is able to create a variety of deliverables, including previews, marketing materials, film outs, digital cinema releases, and DVDs from a single high-resolution, color-approved file. “We are utilizing a workflow that spans the post process and makes DI a viable choice for a broad spectrum of film productions,” says Barbara Marshall, Encore Hollywood managing director.Encore Hollywood has expanded its creative team with the addition of colorist Steve Porter. Porter has a broad range of experience in digital intermediate work for features and color correction for episodic television. His DI credits include Racing Stripes for Warner Bros. and The Pink Panther for MGM. His television credits include the ABC series Lost. Most recently at Technicolor, Porter makes his return to Encore, having previously served on staff from 1989 through 2004. Encore is the second Ascent Media company to add feature Digital Intermediate services in the US. Its Company 3, led by Stefan Sonnenfeld, has two DI theaters.Encore has already begun work on its first DI project, Night Watch 2.
