The prolific film-making team behind the rebooted Star Trek franchise, Bad Robot Productions, has invested in an SGO Mistika conform and stereo 3D system to serve as the centerpiece of its in-house production services operation, Kelvin Optical. The new system is being used to finish the upcoming stereoscopic 3D film, Star Trek Into Darkness.

“Mistika has opened up an entirely new world of workflow efficiency and quality control to us by bringing high-end finishing capabilities inside our facility,” said Bad Robot Productions executive Ben Rosenblatt. “The platform’s versatility has already made it an essential part of every project, of any size, that we make.”

The Mistika system was supplied and supported by local U.S. SGO partner AArmadillo headed by CEO Colin Ritchie. “I am particularly proud of the Bad Robot Mistika,” said Ritchie. “It represents a significant step into new business and creative models for the production company. Their reliance on the outside world has reduced as a result of the installation of the Mistika which should have both creative and positive financial implications for them.”

Star Trek Into Darkness, directed by J.J. Abrams, in co-production with Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions and Bad Robot Productions, is due for release May 17 in the immersive Stereo 3D IMAX format.
