How are we different
Unlike all other facilities in Australia, we offer wet and dry hire of the theatre. What does this mean? This means you are welcome to come in with your own editing and offline/online equipment and plug it into the DCI-quality theatre. We will ensure the colour science and finishing workflow all the way to the DCP. This allows for those critical colour and environmental decisions to be made with equipment and operators you are familiar with. When you need that extra “know-how” we are their to ensure an informed and expedient path to the finish.
Like typical Post houses, we do also offer DaVinci Resolve, Premiere and a list of experienced operators to chose from. Its all your choice, we do not dictate what or who you must use in our Theatre.
