LOS ANGELES — Boutique post production company Shed (https://shed.la), with locations in LA and London, worked on the dailies for Marvel’s latest blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The studio, which specializes in the art of cinematic color grading and image quality, created the feature’s dailies using a Codex system.
“Guardians of the Galaxy is a great franchise, and we were excited to be part of the second film,” says Matt Tomlinson, SVP of imaging science at Shed. “We worked hard to prepare the dailies to help provide the highest quality image continuity from dailies through DI, and make the rest of the teams’ jobs easier. That’s a major mission for us at Shed, and we believe that level of attention to detail results in the best looking films.”
Shed believes that the dailies process is one of the most important stages of film production. Teams frequently travel to sets and build elaborate post workflows remotely, based on the belief that strong dailies make the entire DI process easier and smoother, as well as result in higher quality films. The full set-to-post workflow that Tomlinson and his team used for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 relied on Codex technology to bring in footage from a number of different cameras spanning from GoPros to 8K cinema cameras.
