Creativity at its best
Starting in 2004, I’ve always focused on providing great technical know-how and exceptional service to filmmakers, clients, and other producers, whether at home or abroad. I’ve worked with a wide range of clients and productions around the globe, in a huge variety of demanding conditions; in the humidity of the jungle or the heat of the arid desert; crossing the Atlantic ocean inside a navy ship, aerial work from helicopters, you name it. With international experience on independent and big-budget films alike, the technical and creative production services I can provide will help make the project go smoothly, without fail.
Producing & project management for projects large & small, from commercials to short films, and with a wide variety of clients and experience, we can help deliver your project on time & on budget.
Digital Imaging (on & offset)
Creating & supporting digital workflows for productions large or small; collaborating with the DP and 3D team to ensure precise, beautiful shots. ONSET work includes providing DIT services with our custom DIT carts, providing almost instant Dailies for the DP and director. It includes using a wide-range of software scripts, tools, tricks and workflow optimizations learnt from almost a decade of Digital Film and 3D experience. OFF-SET, we do the same processing, but at a lower cost for productions: with twice daily pickups, and same-day processing, we stream Dailies to wherever the client is located. Experienced with the Alexa, Epic, One, F55, SI-2K, a variety of DSLR Cameras, and many more, in both 2D or 3D shooting environments.
Providing creative stereography for directors and producers includes advising on a proper 3D workflow, planning, and execution thereof. In pre-production, we will put together a shooting package, design the overal 3d creative narrative, and prep for shooting; on set, I lead the 3D team to ensure the capture of great 3D images; and in Post, I help the director, editor, and DP settle on the best use of 3D for the final film.
Since starting a small production studio on St. Laurent Blvd, it’s expanded to include our Off-set Digital Imaging services, a small editing room, 3D hand-drawn animation software drawing station, a 4K TV and with uncompressed playback systems, 5.1 surround-sound mixing, and a variety of back-end options such as secure backups. We also have a variety of 3D technology and presentation systems that can be rented out on an as-needed basis. See [link here] for more details.

So I've made some progress on the 4K playback server project; the demo is edited. I'm wondering if I should upload it and get feedback from multiple people or just do the 'online' and just get the 4K ready. I'm going to have to move the entire workstation over to the other room so the film director who's working in the edit room won't be disturbed. Ahhh, the joy of having paying clients! I've also started following up again on the Oculus rift Sandde module project; I'd really like to get some content ready to show to the director. Hopefully the programmer will be able to finish at the end of the month, and we'll have a tech demo up and running by mid next month! I wonder what's going to happen with Oculus now that's it's been bought out by
As my second blog post, this one should have some more information. For example, the things I HAVEN'T worked on today include: the 4K Technology Demo, the Oculus Rift exploration, or Karim's
