Legend3D, a 2D-to-3D conversion technology and services company, announced that construction is underway for its new Hollywood hub that will feature a review theater by RealD, editorial suites and a technology lab. The spacious office with a mezzanine, 28 foot high ceilings and exposed brick and beams will serve as a prime location for partner and sales meetings.
“One of our primary goals behind breaking new ground in LA is to ensure we are easily accessible for creative collaboration with filmmakers and studio clients and this facility will enhance that accessibility,” said Tom Sinnott, Legend3D chief operating officer.
In addition to office space and meeting rooms, the Legend3D team will leverage the Hollywood hub to host educational events for industry professionals. Executive producer Matt Akey said, “This Hollywood facility will truly be a one-stop shop for 3D conversion work, reviews and editorial conform. We’ll be offering seminars to filmmakers and post-production supervisors on ways to enhance shooting for the 3D aesthetic, and on hybrid conversion/native 3D workflows.”
In 2013, Legend3D opened a 60,000 square-foot facility in Carlsbad, CA, with the capacity to allow more than 400 artists and creative supervisors to collaborate on projects simultaneously. To ensure seamless project workflow between offices, a 10-gigabit pipe connects Legend3D’s LA hub to the Carlsbad facility, allowing for secure, real-time transfer of stereo data.
The Legend3D leadership team based at the LA hub will include Akey and new director of business development, Stephanie Winslow, who previously worked as a stereo production supervisor at Legendary Pictures.
