Case Study – Final Frame
DRS Nova for Final Frame
When leading New York-based finishing house Final Frame looked to expand its horizons, London, with its established film business and wealth of creative talent, was the obvious choice. Consequently the facility has now established a Covent Garden-based offshoot to provide services to independent film makers including scanning, finishing DCP creation and restoration. One of the first pieces of essential kit to complement its Nucoda grading capabilities was DRS Nova, the latest iteration of film restoration software from MTI, purchased from UK reseller root6.
“We’ve created an excellent offering for independent film makers,”
Explains Final Frame London’s Director of Film Services Simon Marbrook.
“With a collaborative infrastructure between London and New York, we’re able to share resources and talent. We have a wealth of experience in a well rounded team.”
Marbrook is joined at Final Frame London by Senior Colourists Kevin Shaw and former Nucoda Product Manager Susumu Asano.
“Between us we’re familiar with all types of genres and formats from legacy film and video to the latest digital cameras,” Marbrook adds. “We’ll be looking to complement working for independent feature film makers with documentaries and longer form TV.”
No stranger to the powerful restoration toolset from MTI, Marbrook has worked with the system for more than 10 years, originally at Dubs.
“It’s a highly respected restoration solution – and a really powerful tool. I’ve used it on a range of projects from concert recordings to feature films. It’s simple to use and gives clients a very fast turnaround. When I was Head of Restoration for ‘The World at War,’ one of television’s most watched documentary series; we removed more than 3.5 million artifacts. Without the MTI software, this would have taken years to complete.”
