FotoKem set up networked, mirrored editorial suites in both Hollywood and Pennsylvania for the new series.

An intense psychological thriller executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan, FOX’s Wayward Pines required a custom production path that enabled working from multiple locations, remote viewing environments and collaborative timing.

FotoKem developed a variety of solutions for Wayward Pines, including a secure post pipeline at various locations such as the production site in Vancouver, Shyamalan’s editing suite in Pennsylvania and editorial in Hollywood.

Dailies from Vancouver were delivered to Hollywood and Pennsylvania simultaneously. Because moving the entire post team to Pennsylvania was cost-prohibitive, FotoKem set up networked, mirrored editorial suites in both places. Each location had calibrated monitors that ensured consistency, and the creative teams were connected via unique full-motion, color-critical viewing platforms, allowing them to remotely “sit in” and watch color screens in near real time.
