London post house MPC has purchased two FilmLight Baselight stereo grading systems for their Wardour Street facility.  The system will integrate with their existing color grading workflow giving the colorists wider access to 3D stereoscopic technologies.   Director of color grading Jean-Clement Soret says “Thanks to FilmLight’s talented R&D team they have made huge progress in developing their creative toolset and this has improved to give me the best grading features available today. With a nonlinear grading workflow becoming the norm Baselight is fast becoming the industry standard. I work in this way on a mix of both commercials and feature film projects; projects which can be quite challenging and require a lot of processing power as well as complex grading structures Baselight can give me this.” MPC’s senior colorist Paul Harrison also believes the addition of two new Baselight suites will enhance their digital workflow and says “It’s a really positive move for us; it already gives real time stereoscopic grading capability the exact direction the industry is going in.  Being able to grade left and right eye images on the same screen and play them in real time really facilitates both the creative and technical processes.” Harrison is particularly impressed by the open conversation with FilmLight. “They have a great habit of listening to the needs of colorists and of collaborating with us directly to create a fluid and intuitive approach to the color grading process ” he says.  “I know that when I’m looking for something new and radical the extensive Baselight toolkit will have a way to achieve what I am looking for. ” FilmLight MPC
