SonicPool Opens "Superior" Room for HD Finishing, Including 2K and 4K Capabilities(August 05, 2008)
â€śSuperiorâ€ť has a 16 foot Sony SXRD HD Projection system, a DS Nitris Dual Boot system and 5.1 Surround Sound, with true 4:4:4 technology and 5 terabytes of storage. HD Online Editor Jason Yanuzzi is the lead online editor and colorist for â€śSuperior.â€ť
Initial SonicPool projects which have been HD Finished in â€śSuperiorâ€ť include:
** â€śWonderful World:â€ť This long anticipated film explores interracial romance and stars Matthew Broderick as a bitter, divorced man who marries an African woman. Written and directed by Joshua Goldin.
** â€śFrontiersâ€ť Trailer: For client After Dark Productions, SonicPool did HD finishing for this trailer promoting a horror film about a young woman who looks to escape her abusive life by moving to her family's farm near Atlanta. Unfortunately, she learns her place of supposed comfort offers more terrifying forms of abuse.
** â€śChain Letter:â€ť For writer/producer/director Deon Taylor and his Deon Taylor Enterprises, SonicPool did the audio mix and the HD finish for â€śChain Letter.â€ť The film explores the fact that death, evil and fear have long surrounded the secret history of chain letters, a few of which have stayed alive across time and generations with terrible warnings that force recipients to ask: If I break the chain, will something bad really happen?
** â€śThe Hustle:â€ť Again for Deon Taylor Enterprises, SonicPool worked on this film about a couple of two-bit hustlers who decide they're ready for their next challenge. They stumble upon an idea for the greatest con ever: starting a church so they can rake in all the parishioners' fine money.
