PostWorks handles dailies for four NYC-based network TV pilots

PostWorks, a New York City-based post facility, announced that it handled dailies for four of the nine network television pilots that have filmed in New York City over the past two months.

Billy Baldwin, PostWorks’ president, said this season represents the largest number of network pilots shooting in New York in the last decade.

PostWorks’ team handled the dailies on “NY-70” for NBC Universal Television, Levinson/Fontana’s “The Bedford Diaries” for the WB, “Love Monkey” for Sony Pictures Television and Paramount Network Television, and “The Prince,” which Matt LeBlanc and Jesse Wigutow executive produced for the WBTV through LeBlanc’s Fort Hill Productions.

For each of these projects, PostWorks said the workflows were carefully designed to accommodate the multiple delivery formats needed and to account for every moment from the instant the negative arrived. Most shot film and transferred to HD with simultaneous SD records to tape.

In addition, content was also encoded to various proxy formats like MPEG2 and Windows Media files and/or digitized as Avid media. To increase its capabilities, PostWorks added Digital Rapids DRC Stream 2500 capture and processing boards to its infrastructure. For each project, PostWorks’ team transferred dailies according to each studio’s varying specs—and rapidly distributed the dailies to executives on both U.S. coasts.
