La Sartoria dell'immagine in Florence and 8K Mobile Digital Lab in London have agreed to offer their combined services for editing, remote post production for films & tv series, & on set visual effects. 

 

Both companies have studied and developed highly innovative services that allow working in full resolution immediately from the set, location or studio up to 8k, and even beyond, without using compressed images or proxies. These proven technologies are also designed for remote working.



 Alessio has just finished the post-production of a collective short film directed by 5 directors, produced by DADO Produzioni, shot in 8K RedRaw and entirely managed remotely. Below some still ungraded stills. The camera native files were uploaded directly to the cloud system and immediately shared with the 5 directors of photography, the 5 directors, the production and, Alessio's remote editing room in Florence.





.4 Alberto Parodi's audio post production on location

David writes: I've been professionally stimulated for many years by Alberto Parodi's passion and ability in all that has to do with sound. Especially sound for pictures. He has continued to invest so as to have the best and most efficient technologies for his craft, and he makes it seem so easy to make it all work to the highest levels of quality and efficiency. Its no surprise that he likes the 8k Mobile Digital Lab that I have designed with Mike Connor, and I'm happy to explain to our clients his qualities and skills. I think he adds a winning combination to our image post production. Indeed, he's come up with a brilliant portable sound design unit for audio on location that works very efficiently with the 8k Mobile Digital Lab

Remote Film Post Production - La Sartoria Dell'Immagine & Alessio Focardi


                                                          Statement from founders David Bush and Mike Connor


Stimulated by our long term professional quest of striving to improve continuously processes and techniques in our fields, we decided to design and create the 8K Mobile Digital Lab based on what we believe will become a more efficient and cost effective solution for the area where production and post production are merging ever more into a single process.

 

The Lab that we have created is in essence the tool that we had always dreamt of for ourselves, and, as it offers overall savings to production, and helps shorten that ever important Time to Market, while also offering very useful new creative tools, we think the market will like it too.


The concept has already stimulated three excellent partners to want to work with us:

I've worked with passion and determination for some 45 years in the film and television industries, learning through many mistakes and much experience skills that have stimulated me professionally with a multitude of different roles, ranging from editor, colour grader, visual effects supervisor, 3d supervisor, post facility founder and manager, and, dulcis in fondo, producer. I've also had the priviledge of working with and for many talented film directors, producers and film professionals both for the small and the big screen around the world. Beyond these experiences, this site also showcases a new and innovative 8K Mobile Digital Lab developed through many years of work in visual effects, production and post production with Mike Connor - taking the post facility to the heat of the action.

Film Restoration Laboratory in Rome

“When I met David 20 years ago, then in Rome and at Cinecittà Digital, offering authoring DVDs among the first companies in Italy, I could not foresee that after all this period we would find ourselves collaborating again. David has always been a reference person in the post-production sector and a professional who is continually looking for new technologies and better audiovisual solutions”.

"I'm passionate about film restoration, and I'm convinced that Pixelman have the technology and know how to offer very high resolution scans that the 8K Mobile Digital Lab can edit, process, colour grade and master. Many would say that 4K is enough, but my approach is not to consider "enough", but what can be done to improve the quality benchmark. I'm excited by the sheer pristine quality and clean images that come out of the wetgate Cineric scanner, and with its higher resolution capabilities of both 8K and even 11K I believe that the collaboration of the two companies will prove to make solutions of the highest quality and cost effectiveness for our clients. The ultra high quality results will speak for themselves".

Pixelman hosts the American Cineric Film Restoration Laboratory in Rome, with Loretta, the fourth scanner worldwide. In our studio, we are offering the highest quality digitalization by using Cineric’s worldwide famous wet gate HDR scanner able to digitalize all film formats. Thanks to the ability to scan through the liquid process, we obtain higher quality and much cleaner masters compared to the Dry Gate process. This allows us much shorter digital restoration times and is the best way in Italy to digitize films following FIAF standards.


The scanner has superior characteristics compared to other scanners and is also the only one that allows working using the wet gate process, digitizing 4K, 8K and up to 11K, with True HDR, using CCD sensor, Collimated LED light source with changable wavelegths allowing a perfect fit to the material being scanned.
