MUMBAI, INDIA - Post production and rental studio, FutureWorks Media (https://futureworks.in), has launched a new “look studio” that combines its color and rental expertise. With over a decade of dedicated development in imaging, the studio’s primary objective is to support cinematographers and directors in realizing their visions through the latest color and post production services.
Uniting its color services and camera rental division, the team at FutureWorks has streamlined its ability to deliver color-balanced dallies to editorial through its DIT services – inclusive of on-set monitoring of both HDR and SDR simultaneously. Building on this, the new Look Studio is housed within its color facility and serves as a creative hub, where solutions are tested, integrated and perfected before being deployed on location.
The studio features a 35-by-20-foot overall production space, with a 14-foot-high ceiling grid. The studio is equipped with live grading carts and data management setups, connected to the facility’s main color grading suites. Cinematographers can test cameras and lenses, and build looks and LUTs alongside FutureWorks colorists. They can also review their captured tests on DCI projection, HDR and SDR broadcast monitors via Baselight color grading suites. This facility can ensures thorough testing of the entire color workflow, covering capture, data, conform, grade and final delivery, as well as mastering and QC.
“Our commitment to investing in the training and deployment of colorists alongside cinematographers, along with trained imaging technicians on location, has yielded positive results for FutureWorks,” says co-founder, Gaurav Gupta. “We're continually pushing the boundaries of imaging, providing comprehensive solutions that seamlessly blend technical excellence with creative freedom.”
