EditFest London 2017

June 27, 2017

Darren was invited to talk again at this years EditFest held at the BFI, London. The sold out event had a stellar line up of panelists, William Oswald (Sherlock, Dr. Who), John Smith ACE (Leaving Las Vegas, Sliding Doors and 24 Legacy), Mathilde Bonnefoy ACE (Run Lola Run, Leon: The Professional),  Chris King ACE (Amy, Senna) amongst many other editors who are top of their game. The keynote was a fascinating insight to the world of Hollywood Editing Royalty Pietro Scalia ACE, (JFK, The Doors, Good Will Hunting, Black Hawk Down, Gladiator). The day was inspirational, educational and I was very honoured to be the opening guest speaker at this annual gathering of editors.

Euphoria colour grade complete

June 21, 2011

We have just completed the colour grade on the new film, Euphoria, directed by John Howe. The film was shot entirely on RED. Our DaVinci grading suite once again gave us such flexibility in deciding a look for the film. The VFX shots were uploaded to our server during the grade and inserted in as they become available. Blackmagic design have put Online Creative on their beta test programme and the new software was put through its paces on this job. Some of the new features of the beta V8 software were employed immediately, notably noise reduction and stabilisation. The film will be hitting the festival circuit very soon.
