Hula Post, Hollywood, has developed an all-in-one workstation for virtual reality content creation. The workstation features stitching, stabilization, editorial, visual effects, titling, color correction, finishing and playback. It is available for lease on a short-term or long-term basis, and comes with the same 24/7/365 technical support and service that Hula provides for editing systems, media storage and networking projects.
Queen Sugar, the new OWN series from Warner Horizon Television and Harpo Productions and executive producers Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay, tells the story of three estranged siblings who, after a family tragedy, reunite to run an 800-acre sugar farm in Louisiana. Based on the bestseller by Natalie Baszile, the show is a rich and deeply moving tale of people overcoming risk and reinventing themselves.
In a project spanning nearly two years, Hula Post provided editorial systems, workflow engineering and technical support to Walt Disney Pictures for the production of The Jungle Book. Hula Post engineers set up and maintained editorial facilities at the studio’s production facility in Playa Vista; at Digital Domain, where motion capture elements were produced; and at Los Angeles Center Studios, where live action elements were captured. Additionally, it supported satellite-editing facilities at Sony Pictures Studios and Skywalker Sound, where sound work was completed.
Hula Post recently provided editorial systems, facilities and support to editor Melissa Kent for her work on Captive, Paramount Pictures’ new thrilling drama. Kent spent six months cutting the film at Hula’s Burbank facility, followed by an additional two weeks on Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood. Hula provided Avid workstations and storage at both sites.
