Danish post-production facility Sonne Film has acquired four Discreet Smoke editing and finishing systems and Flint visual effects and compositing systems running on Linux as part of a facility-wide refurbishment and expansion.
Commercials director, Michael Sonne, established Sonne Film in 1989 originally as an in-house post facility for his production company. After the production arm was sold off, post-production became the company’s sole focus. The facility provides offline and online editing, visual effects, 3-D graphics and sound design for documentaries and feature films as well as commercials.
The purchase is intended to make the facility more competitive in the commercial market and give it the capacity to take on more film work. Shooting in HD is growing in Denmark, and although the new systems are SD, working in HD isn’t a problem because files can be converted. Additionally, the Discreet systems can handle 2K quickly.
