Autodesk Helps Shape Movie Magic
EFILM Digital Laboratories, using its proprietary EWORKS system for the digital intermediate, applied the Autodesk Lustre digital color grading system for some of this season's most celebrated films, including MILK, FROST/NIXON, DEFIANCE, DOUBT, BEDTIME STORIES, FOUR CHRISTMASES and YES MAN. EFILM's graded footage from 4K, 35mm and 16mm movies, as well as from the Genesis camera, and even took its Lustre timing and color grading expertise out into the field on REVOLUTIONARY ROAD. "The software-based Lustre technology really lends itself to location work. Not having to ship a slew of gear, the remote unit retained all the strengths with no compromise," said Michael Cooper, EFILM vice president of business development. "In the digital era, we're really fixated on picture quality. We love Lustre because it gives filmmakers the freedom to tell the story they want and gives EFILM the flexibility to evolve quickly with each new digital technology."
