Publish date:

NEW YORK—Technicolor-PostWorks New York colorist Eli Friedman and re-recording mixer Christopher Koch, CAS will join director Marcus Robinson and editor Leo Cullen in a panel discussion on Robinson’s documentary Rebuilding the World Trade Center as part of the CCW+ SATCON conference, November 12th at the Javits Convention  Center in New York. The 1-hour panel discussion, slated for 3:30 p.m. in the Production+Post Theater, will be hosted by Marc Loftus, senior editor/director of web content for Post Magazine.

More than eight years in the making, Rebuilding the World Trade Center documents the reconstruction of the New York City landmark through stunning time-lapse footage and insightful interviews with construction workers, engineers, architects and others involved in day-to-day work on the project. An Irish artist and filmmaker, Robinson positioned cameras around the construction site to record the buildings’ rebirth in inspiring and fascinating detail. Acting in unique creative partnership with Robinson, Technicolor-PostWorks and its team of artists and technicians were involved at every stage in making the film from processing 35mm and 16mm film footage to delivering finished masters.

A winner of a BAFTA Award for Outstanding Photography, Rebuilding the World Trade Center was broadcast in the U.S. on HISTORY and in the U.K. on Channel Four, and has drawn wide praise for its artistry and mesmerizing power. “The film is an allegory or parable about the human spirit,” says Robinson. “The reconstruction of the site, which occurs over many years, is an amazing story, one that’s stirring and inspiring.”

Friedman, whose credits include the HBO series Vice and the new Oxygen series My Crazy Love, color corrected hundreds of hours of time-lapse material. In achieving a consistent look, Friedman overcame considerable challenges caused by variations in light, cloud patterns, weather conditions and other factors.

Koch, whose work includes Eugene Jarecki’s The House I Live In and Tony Kaye’s Detachment, mixed the documentary’s soundtrack, bringing clarity and consistency to material recorded over many years in divergent environments and recording situations.
