Duo ink outsourcing deal
SYDNEY — Post facility Omnilab Media and Movie Network Channels have inked a long-term outsourcing deal under which the effects house will build a studio for the channels.
Omnilab handles all post work for Movie Network Channels, which is a joint venture between Village Roadshow, Warner Bros., MGM and Disney/ABC. It has four channels — Movie One, Movie Two, Movie Extra and Movie Greats — on paybox Foxtel.
As part of the pact the post house will build an HD facility at Movie Network Channels HQ.
“This new deal is a significantly different style of service provision with a new post, design and audio facility being installed at our premises with a complete changeover to Final Cut Pro technology, desktop and suites,” said Movie Network Channels topper Tony Forrest.
The facility is scheduled for completion in August.
