Filmworkers, Chicago, Dallas & Nashville
With facilities in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville, Filmworkers is one of the leading independent providers of post production services in the United States. Its services run the gamut from editorial through delivery and include high-end colour grading delivered via four Baselight systems.
Filmworkers’ home facility serves Chicago’s booming advertising industry, second only in terms of its size and the quality of its creative output to New York. It is also a valuable asset to the independent film community that has been growing steadily in recent years, spurred by tax incentives offered by several state governments in the region. The company’s Dallas and Nashville offices, similarly, provide producers in their communities with a local source for post production services on par with facilities in New York and Los Angeles.
Filmworkers has recently been broadening the scope of its services by associating itself with a network of boutique-style creative services providers. They include Vitamin, a hybrid design and digital production studio that has done work for Nike, Budweiser and Freschetta, Giannini Creative, a specialist in creative retouching, CGI for character development, animation and print, illustration and pre-media, and Filmworkers Interactive, which produces branded content and viral media. Filmworkers also operates Chicago’s largest film laboratory, Astro Lab, and its most sophisticated digital services bureau, Digigog. Working together in various combinations, the companies in the group can provide a complete solution for almost any type of media project with high efficiency, superb creative execution and competitive pricing.
Baselight occupies a central role in the chain of services offered by Filmworkers and its associates. It provides the creative tools to grade projects of every type and scope, and for every delivery requirement. It also integrates seamlessly into any workflow, allowing the company’s colourists to collaborate organically with all the other artists in the group.
“Our clients are interested in creativity, image quality and speed—and Baselight sets the standard in all three areas,” says Filmworkers senior colourist Michael Mazur. “It allows us to perform the most sophisticated types of colour correction operations quickly and almost effortlessly.”
