European CG animation production studio, KANDOR Graphics, has invested in a Mistika postproduction system. SGO’s Mistika produces high-end animated short and feature films, and one reason KANDOR chose Mistika is its versatility to support animation in 2D and stereo 3D.
“Mistika will be our pipeline’s backbone, in a way that we will be able to conform daily, regardless of the production status of each shot,” director of KANDOR, Juan Molina said.
“The fact that we now have a system at our facility that can handle its own color correction and Stereo 3D, conforming, finishing, DCP creation and even compositing, has made us choose Mistika to be at the center of our projects,” Molina said. “Furthermore, SGO’s immediate after sales support and the access we are given to the development team at SGO, are factors we really appreciate.”
KANDOR is currently using Mistika for the stereo 3D CGI feature film, Justin and the Knights of Valour. Antonio Banderas is a company partner, producer and voice of one of the characters of the new production. The film is a story about the determination of a child to fulfill his dream of becoming a knight.
Soon KANDOR will also collaborate with Granada University to develop a new Master degree course on postproduction, with Mistika as a key tool and value technology for the project.
Features produced by KANDOR include, The Tell Tale Heart, The Missing Lynx and The Lady and the Reaper.
