"Over the last few years, our Sundance slate has leaned
toward documentary - including Eugene Jarecki's 2005 Grand Jury Prize winner Why
We Fight and Jonathan Demme's 2006 Heart
of Gold, among many others," notes
PostWorks' COO Rob DeMartin. "In contrast, 2007 finds us supporting a record
number of narrative features."
The company's support varied from project to project. Padre
Nuestro, from writer/director Christopher
Zalla, was edited with Avid's DNxHD codec and finished using a 4:4:4 HDCAM SR
workflow. Writer/director Tom DiCillo's Delirious and writer/director David Gordon Green's Snow
Angels were both given 2K DI finishes. For
writer/director Gina Kim's Never Forever - which was finished photochemically - the company provided lab
services and editorial support. On the sound side, supervising sound editor and
re-recording mixer Patrick Donahue worked on Delirious and Waitress.
This year PostWorks joins The New York State Governor's
Office for Motion Picture & Television in sponsoring Park City's New York
Lounge at this year's festival. The State Governor's Office for Motion Picture
and TV Development offers a number of incentives designed to attract
productions to New York.
