BROOKLYN — The Sim Group (www.simgroup.com), which supplies production and post production equipment and services to the feature and television industry, has expended its offerings into the New York market, where it will offer dailies, offline and finishing services via a new Brooklyn facility. The Bling Digital facility creates a foothold for other Sim Group brands, including Chainsaw, Pixel Underground and Tattersall Sound and Picture.
Bling is home to a Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve color bay and Avid Media Composer and Symphony edit bays. The studio has already provided services for a number of shows, including Mr. Robot, Forever, American Odyssey and Season 3 of The Following. Leo De Wolff is a workflow producer for Bling Digital, New York, and says the studio was able to hire artists from the New York talent pool.
“New York is a vibrant production community, and Sim has the breadth of services to offer unique workflow packages to producers and content creators,” notes James Martin, chief strategy officer at Sim Group.
“With the multitude of studios and productions cropping up in Brooklyn, we saw an immediate need for Bling's services,” adds Chris Parker, CTO, Sim Group. “The response has been overwhelming. The market is hungry for our unique way of offering workflow.”
