Post Logic Studios Demystifies Visual Effects and DI for The Mysteries of Pittsburgh

Publish date:

Hollywood, CA (November 28, 2006)-- Post Logic Studios, a leading independent post-production and digital intermediate (DI) service facility, is providing end-to-end post services for the upcoming independent feature film, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh produced by Groundswell Productions.

“More than being a complete pleasure, working with Post Logic Studios has been a very practical choice for us. They are total pros when it comes to feature post, and have an incredible in-house talent base to manage everything from visual effects supervision and dailies to creating effects and DI. It is so nice that one individual vendor can manage so much of our post throughput,” said Michael London, Groundswell Productions.

From the producers of the Academy Award-winning Sideways, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, based on the best-selling novel by Michael Chabon, chronicles the last true summer of Art Bechstein's (played by Jon Foster) youth. Also starring Mena Suvari and Peter Sarsgaard, the film is the first full-length feature for which Post Logic is providing on-set effects supervision in addition to visual effects and DI.

“We have the talent base, equipment, infrastructure and pipeline flexibility to manage whatever digital post production requirements our clients have. We can competently accommodate anything from dailies to CG and final digital color grading for film and television projects in SD, HD, 2K or 4K,” says Larry Birstock, CEO, Post Logic. “With a sweet spot in DI, we are already brining together all of the elements of a film for final color correction, so we‘re well positioned and equipped to deliver any of the digital services needed along the production chain.”

Post Logic‘s Joseph Francis is the film‘s visual effects supervisor. In this role, he is on-set guiding the production's shooting at critical moments in order to make the visual effects creation process more efficient.

“Sometimes a small adjustment during shooting can make a big difference in the quality or cost of an effects shot,” said Francis.

In addition to on-set visual effects supervision, Post Logic‘s visual effects team also provided sky replacements for weather continuity, compositing, green screen, clean up, 3D camera tracking, rig removal, CG element creation, digital matte painting and other stylistic effects as called for in the script. The Mysteries of Pittsburgh will be released in 2007.
