Technicolor-PostWorks New York marked its third collaboration with Darren Aronofsky in providing post-production services for Noah, the director’s epic inspired by the story of Noah in the Old Testament. The facility provided everything from 35mm film processing to editorial conforming and final color grading.
Eugene Riecansky claims it was love at first sight. It was about eight years ago, the visual effects and music industry veteran was working on a video for alternative metal band Deftones and first encountered Autodesk software at a participating post house. A recent project had the team creating tour visuals for international DJ, Skism. After using Maya to help create pristine elements such as Snakes wrapped around neon crosses, huge robotic structures, and pulsating skulls, the Rockstar team was able to move the entire project, including the 3D assets created in Maya, quickly and easily into Smoke to bring everything together and provide animations ready for the DJ to use live on tour
