The French film laboratory and post-production house Éclair Group chose Firefly Cinema’s digital intermediate system FirePost as part of their advanced digital post-production workflow. Already, several productions have been finished at Éclair using this solution, including three feature films that are part of the official selection of the 68th Festival de Cannes.

Éclair Group was created in 1907 and is one of Europe's most renowned digital post-production facilities for feature films. Thierry Beaumel, director of production at Éclair Group says, "We are very excited that three films finished at Éclair are presented at Cannes this year and we praise our colorists for their hard work and artistry. Our DI solution provider, Firefly Cinema, has definitively contributed to their success. "

Firefly Cinema‘s CEO, Philippe Reinaudo says, "We designed FirePost to support the artists and their vision. We are proud that our solution is enabling Éclair Group and their customers with collaborative tools tailored to the most complex color grading projects."

Firefly Cinema has recently announced that Firefly Cinema’s products, FirePost and digital dailies solution FireDay, are sold in the US by Maxx Digital, a California-based solution and service provider for the post-production industry.
