Canadian boutique post-production company Slik has invested in SGO's Mistika post-production system to expand its 4K capabilities and color grading.
Established in Montreal in 2001, Slik offers comprehensive post services for television, film and commercials. Recent credits include TV series such as Infoman, Les gars des vues and commercials such as Boston Pizza directed by Alain Chicoine, co-founder of Slik, and documentaries, which include Légendes Urbaines and Les Coulisses du Bye Bye 2013.
Co-founder and editor, Philippe Fafard, at Slik states, “With its wide variety of tools, we think Mistika will provide us with a tremendously fast and flexible central system with the highest digital image quality. The real-time performance with online, compositing and color grading in a single platform was a very important aspect of our decision with the short turn around we have with our projects. We expect Mistika will open new doors for our clients and team and we look forward to placing it at the centre of our workflow.”
Canadian reseller 3vis president Sylvain Plourde said, “We are extremely happy to have Montreal-based Slik join the SGO family with their recent purchase of Mistika. Slik has a long and successful history as a boutique post-production facility in the Canadian market. With this new technology they will enhance and expand their services through offering 4K+ resolution capabilities and high-end color grading. As with many post-production facilities, Slik’s pipeline is dependent on Avid and Mistika’s support for the AAF format, which was an important aspect of this procurement. We are very excited to see the enthusiasm around the SGO product line and delighted to be working with Slik on their new projects.”
Director of global sales and operations at SGO, Geoff Mills said, “The team at 3vis' energetic passion and commitment to expand the SGO customer-base in Canada is evident. It is great to see a successful and talented post company such as Slik join the ever growing Mistika ranks and we warmly welcome them.”
