PostWorks expands DI business, adds Spirit 2K DataCine

As part of its data-centric workflow, New York City-based post-production and digital intermediate (DI) company PostWorks has brought online its newly acquired Grass Valley Spirit 2K DataCine system from Thomson.

The telecine is the third Spirit at PostWorks. The post house also has purchased Grass Valley Bones Linux-based software tools.

The new Grass Valley Spirit 2K system is being used for transferring 35mm film images to HD and SD video for the NBC Universal production of “The Black Donnellys” and for converting Super 16mm film-based footage to 2K data for “Prairie Wind” a new feature directed by Jonathan Demme for Paramount Classics.

PostWorks, New York completed nine DI feature films on the Grass Valley Spirit DataCine in 2005 and expects to produce more than twice that number in 2006. The Grass Valley Spirit 2K DataCine allows PostWorks to scan 2K resolution images at greater speeds, while creating digital dailies for the variety of film projects.

The Spirit 2K DataCine produces both SD and HD transfer from film, as well as a pure data output, which helps film-imaging companies serve a wide variety of clients.
