Running Man Chooses Cortex Dailies for Dailies Processing on Louie and Broad City


LR-RunningMan_LouieRunning Man, a New York postproduction facility, has selected MTI Film’s Cortex Dailies as the centerpiece of its dailies processing workflow for television, feature films, documentaries and other projects. Cortex streamlines dailies processing, enabling Running Man to quickly deliver media to editorial teams, generate review media accessible across a variety of platforms, and lay the groundwork for color grading and other finishing processes.

“We were looking for an advanced dailies solution for our episodic work,” said Running Man principal colorist Troy Thompson. “A lot of inefficiencies arise when shows lack a proper dailies workflow. Editorial systems don’t handle all of the metadata and a lack of metadata can cause problems during the finishing process.” Thompson added that with Cortex, “The shows get a better looking image to work with throughout the offline process, and we get the metadata we need to do the conforms.”

Additionally, Cortex results in time and cost savings for Running Man’s production clients. It automates dailies processes that formerly required an additional technician. “Typically, shows will hire an extra assistant to handle transcoding and syncing, Cortex removes the need for this, and handles the processing of dailies much faster. This makes the entire post process more efficient” said Thompson.

LR-RunningMan_BroadCityRunning Man is currently using Cortex to process dailies for the fourth season of FX Network’s Louie and the debut season of Comedy Central’s Broad City. The facility is currently processing more than seven hours of footage for the two shows each production day, and is able to deliver dailies media to the editorial teams within the same day.
