FotoKem has expanded its postproduction services in New Orleans, and moved into a new space at Second Line Stages, a production hub for the local filmmaking community in the heart of the Lower Garden District.
Previously situated downtown near the French Quarter, FotoKem has been supporting local productions and providing quick deployment of its on-set and near-set nextLAB systems since 2011. As part of the expansion, FotoKem has added a dedicated Mac-based Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve suite to allow for conform and color services. The facility’s offerings in the region include file-based dailies, offline editorial systems, media management and global file delivery.
FotoKem’s new space offers 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps and SDI routing capabilities to the dailies rooms. FotoKem clients will also have access to Second Line Stage’s 2K Christie theater, with direct SDI signal routing to and from the FotoKem suites in the near future.
“FotoKem’s presence in Louisiana has been a great experience for our entire team,” said FotoKem’s Peter Santoro, VP of feature and commercial services. “We’ve worked on 50-plus projects with more in the queue, and, in the process, developed long-standing relationships and built new ones.”
Productions shooting in New Orleans that have relied on FotoKem include Into the Badlands, Astronaut’s Wives Club, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The D Train and 99 Homes.
