Lipsync Posts 34 Versions of New Stuart Little 2 TrailerNew facilities and expertise enable Lipsync to complete major project in-house
|Stuart Little 2 Russian language titles (click image for larger view).|
The trailer contains a sequence where Stuart -- the adopted mouse with the 'can-do' attitude -- flies a plane in a skywriting sequence. Based on style guides and materials supplied from the film's graphic animators, Sony Imageworks, Lipsync Post then recreated the sequence in its many versions. Complex cloud particle animation was achieved through the craft skills in LipSync's Graphics Department, armed with an arsenal of effects software on Mac and NT platforms.
Utilising its two Dolby dubbing theatres, both with DFC digital film consoles, Lipsync was able to complete the project in-house, even to the extent of the final digital output to film -- which was done using the recently acquired Arri Film Recorder.
According to Peter Hampden, Director at Lipsync Post, "A key consideration for our client, Columbia Pictures, was the maintenance of consistently high quality throughout the process, working with a first generation negative. The fact that we were able to fulfill these requirements -- to a stringent deadline -- says as much about the ability of our team as it does about the investment we've made in technology."
