Technicolor provided full processing and digital lab support for the feature.

Danny Boyle has employed Technicolor’s elite motion picture services for his psychological thriller, Trance.

Technicolor digital manager Dan Mulligan led the deployment of a bespoke lab for the project at Technicolor’s Soho Lexington Street studios.

Mulligan commented: “We designed and built a full custom Lab to support this project. The team received and delivered huge amounts of data daily, in addition to many ‘flavours’ of digital formats. Challenges included turning around 24 hours of rushes for the next day, which we are happy to say we were able to deliver.”

Technicolor provided Trance with full processing and digital lab support for the feature.

Formats included high-quality Alexa ARRIRAW, Canon 5D and IndieCam (CinemaDNG). The production used the ARRIRAW archive to master and clone RAID storage, and ARRIRAW Avid MXF creation with full ALE and 3D LUT applied for offline.

The Technicolor team ensured that full QC reports and data integrity checks were performed with the IndieCam processing to both Avid offline and new master file formats as required. The Canon 5D CR2 file processing was provided on 24p timeline.
