Press Release from AlphaDogs
BURBANK, CA, May 27, 2009 -- "Extreme high-speed filming techniques present certain challenges in post, but we also get to work with really great footage that we would never see otherwise," says editor Herrianne Cayabyab of leading post house AlphaDogs, which is now on its second season of the Discovery Channel series TIME WARP.
In the show, MIT scientist and teacher Jeff Lieberman -- along with digital-imaging expert Matt Kearney -- uses the latest in high-speed photography to turn events both usual and unusual into a thing of both beauty and learning.
AlphaDogs was chosen to handle the series due to their reputation for high quality workmanship and attention to detail. AlphaDogs' efforts for the project include up-resing, finalizing effects, creating titles, making deliverable -- captures, importing, rendering, and color correction.
"This is a really fun show, and it's all about the visuals, so it takes some work to get to the finished image," Cayabyab explains of the entirely-HD program. "Whether it's drop-outs that need to be fixed, stuttering in the frame, or adjustments in saturation, in the end our goal is to capture the beauty of the action and help Jeff convey the scientific lesson in the episode."
TIME WARP airs Wednesdays, at 8PM ET/PT.
