Mile Studios, a Dubai-based post-production house, recently launched its Studio On Wheels (SOW), which it describes as “the fastest and most reliable dailies service for digital capture” in the region.
The unit (pictured), which is the first of its kind in the region, is for use on location during all types of productions. It is particularly useful for feature films, long formats and any productions with tight turnaround times.
SOW will help reduce overall post production costs by acting as a bridge between production and post. It allows for verification, back-up, colour management and transcoding to take place on location.
The unit, which was custom-made in Spain, includes a calibrated monitor, the latest Apple mac Pro and boasts 32 Tb file storage.
Leo Joseph, co-founder and MD, Mile Studios, said: “The boundaries between production and post can be merged by our SOW services which can perform multiple data back up, audio syncing, dailies creation, on set colour grading and all other related services offered by a post production studio.”
Dan Mitre, co-founder and MD, Mile Studios, said: “Certain things that could not have been done on location before can now be done on location. Producers will be more than happy because they know they will spend less time in the process of post-production.”
