KOJO WRAPS UP FALLEN FOR DIRECTOR SCOTT HICKS



In a busy start to 2016, KOJO’s Executive Director of post-production Marty Pepper headed to LA in early January to hand over the last of the delivery assets for Scott Hicks’ latest film Fallen, to production company Lotus Entertainment.

After almost two years work KOJO wrapped up the international delivery assets shortly after the final DI session was complete. Shot in Budapest during the spring of 2014, Fallen’s post-production team then assembled in KOJO’s studios in Australia to complete the director’s cut, preliminary visual effects and look development for the DI.

With visual effects being completed by Vision Global in Montreal, Marty Pepper worked extensively with Scott to ensure a smooth workflow between Australia, Canada and the U.S. through the post-production process.

“Right from the start it was vital to set up a collaborative work flow that embraced the strength of the various team members but ultimately closed neatly back into KOJO’s DI process.” Marty Pepper said. “We work on films over such a long period, and often in multiple countries, so we need excellent workflows to ensure everyone can focus on the films story, performances and creative vision.”

In addition to data management, editorial and technical supervision for VFX, KOJO also completed the DI on Fallen with Marty grading on KOJO’s Lustre. The film was graded over a 4 week schedule with Scott  viewing the film on a 13 metre cinema screen based at the Adelaide Studios in South Australia.

In addition to Fallen, KOJO is also in final post-production on Greg McLeans’ latest feature film The Darkness for Blumhouse Productions which stars Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell. Watch the trailer.

KOJO is finalising several bids for US based projects set to commence in mid 2016.
