Picture, WB ink deal for 2 ‘Matrix’ sequels

Cyberbiz brief

“The Matrix” is about to get uploaded: TRW’s Picture Pipeline has inked a deal with Warner Bros. to land the next two “Matrix” sequels as clients. Picture Pipeline’s high-speed broadband network will be used to connect the pics’ physical production in Australia to screening rooms on the studio’s Burbank lot for execs to view. The pic’s post production personnel at Burbank-based EON Entertainment, the f/x facility founded by “Matrix” helmers the Wachowski brothers, will also receive footage via Picture Pipeline’s network. Move is expected to help the pic’s producers reduce costs and turnaround time, eliminating the costly need to ship dallies from Oz and receive immediate feedback.

Company’s first client, NBC’s television drama “Third Watch,” uses Picture PipeLine to connect production offices in New York with NBC in Burbank. System was tested on Warners’ “The Perfect Storm,” which linked the production to f/x studio Industrial Light & Magic near San Francisco. Other pics that are using the system include Fox’s “Behind Enemy Lines” and “The First $20 Million.”
