LOS ANGELES — The 2011 HPA Awards Committee (www.hpaawards.net) will present its Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production to Testronic Labs and Steven J. Scott of Efilm. The Award recognizes companies and individuals who have demonstrated excellence in post production, whether that be in creative storytelling and/or technical innovation. The Awards will be presented at the HPA Awards ceremony on November 10, at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
“The HPA takes pride in recognizing Efilm’s Steven Scott for his role in the creative expression of Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life, and to Testronic for their File Based Laboratory,” notes HPA president, Leon Silverman. “These significant accomplishments represent the best of the deeply creative and innovative process and activities for which our post production community is known and is too rarely recognized. It is the HPA’s great pleasure to be able to honor and celebrate this outstanding work. “
Tree of Life’s creative environment was developed to bring the look of the film to fruition during the DI process. Testronic Labs’ File-Based QC Lab is a third-party facility that implements technology and an automated workflow for QC of the end-to-end file-based post production workflow.
