“We are recognised both internationally and domestically for our exceptional post-production capabilities, consistently high creative standards, excellent technical standards and service that exceeds expectations. “With the help of the Federal and Queensland PDV incentives, our Queensland studio recently completed full picture and sound post as well as (through partner Resin) extensive visual effects on the Singaporean, large-scale action feature Heavens: The Boy and His Robot. Working remotely with the Singaporean-based director, we took the film from edit through to delivery for theatrical release.”
