Filmworkers’ Upgrades Color Correction Resources in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville with a Multi-Million Dollar Investment in FilmLight’s Baselight

Publish date:

CHICAGO—Filmworkers, one of the country’s leading providers of color correction services, has made a multi-million dollar investment in upgrading its color correction suites. The company has purchased four top-of-the-line FilmLight Baselight color grading systems with stereoscopic 3D capability for installation at its facilities in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville. The new Baselight systems will enable Filmworkers to establish complete, non-linear post production workflows at its facilities, with colorists, visual effects artists, editors and others having shared access to data. That will result in better collaboration and a significant boost in efficiency. Additionally, Baselight is an ideal complement to Digigog, Filmworkers’ proprietary digital laboratory, and Astro Lab, its film laboratory, resulting in a complete, one-stop solution for dailies processing for both digital and film media.

“Filmworkers and Digigog will now offer a solution for processing, color correcting and finishing media from any digital or film source that is light years beyond anything else available in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville,� said Filmworkers president Reid Brody. “These new systems give us the ability to work natively with digital files, regardless of format, and carry out post work at the highest level of efficiency and quality. That is what we must do to meet the needs of production companies, editing companies, advertising agencies and movie studios today.� Filmworkers is located at 232 E. Ohio St. Penthouse, Chicago, IL 60611. For more information, call (312) 664-9333 or visit
