Room. In keeping with bays that have â€œAquatic/Nauticalâ€? themed names, â€œSuperiorâ€? offers its clients Avid DS-HD services for 2K, 4K and HD Finishing. The announcement was made by John Frost and Patrick Bird, co-founders, SonicPool, who said, â€œMany of our clients are finishing their projects in Avid Symphony HD and Final Cut Pro HD already, so we felt now was the time to invest in â€œSuperiorâ€? so we could to continue to fulfill that growing demand.â€?
â€œSuperiorâ€? has a 16 foot Sony SXRD HD Projection system, a DS Nitris Dual Boot system and 5.1 Surround Sound, with true 4:4:4 technology and 5 terabytes of storage. HD Online Editor Jason Yanuzzi is the lead online editor and colorist for â€œSuperior.â€?
Initial SonicPool projects which have been HD Finished in â€œSuperiorâ€? include:
** â€œWonderful World:â€? This long anticipated film explores interracial romance and stars Matthew Broderick as a bitter, divorced man who marries an African woman. Written and directed by Joshua Goldin.
** â€œFrontiersâ€? Trailer: For client After Dark Productions, SonicPool did HD finishing for this trailer promoting a horror film about a young woman who looks to escape her abusive life by moving to her family's farm near Atlanta. Unfortunately, she learns her place of supposed comfort offers more terrifying forms of abuse.
** â€œChain Letter:â€? For writer/producer/director Deon Taylor and his Deon Taylor Enterprises, SonicPool did the audio mix and the HD finish for â€œChain Letter.â€? The film explores the fact that death, evil and fear have long surrounded the secret history of chain letters, a few of which have stayed alive across time and generations with terrible warnings that force recipients to ask: If I break the chain, will something bad really happen?
** â€œThe Hustle:â€? Again for Deon Taylor Enterprises, SonicPool worked on this film about a couple of two-bit hustlers who decide they're ready for their next challenge. They stumble upon an idea for the greatest con ever: starting a church so they can rake in all the parishioners' fine money.
