Digital Vision has broken new ground in Europe by announcing that its stereoscopic toolset was used to grade the 3D feature film StreetDance. German post production facility, Post Republic graded the film using the Nucoda Film Master. StreetDance 3D, from Vertigo Films, made its U.S. premier at the 3D Film Festival in Hollywood.
Set in London and featuring some of Britain’s top dance talent, the film tells the story of a street dance crew who, in a bid to win the U.K. Street Dance Championships are forced to team up with a group of classical dancers. Shot in 3D, rigs were supplied by Paradise FX who also supplied rigs for major features such as The Hole 3D and My Bloody Valentine.
Based in Berlin, Post Republic’s grading suite boasts a RealD projection system and silver screen display technology, which applies a polarizing filter system in front of the projector lens and passive polarizing glasses for left eye/right eye separation. Michael Reuter, Post Republic’s Managing Director explains, “We upgraded our Film Master specifically for this project and it has worked extremely well. For a reliable calibration in the grading suite we decided to technically replicate the RealD cinema experience. Our graders wore polarized glasses throughout the session watching the grade on the silver screen and finally mastered onto a stereoscopic DCP. We are very pleased with the results.”
Simon Cuff, Digital Vision’s CEO says, “We are extremely proud to be working with Post Republic on the U.K.’s first 3D feature film and congratulate the filmmakers on its U.S. Premier. It was exciting to work on the film and to work closely with our clients and colleagues from Post Republic.”
