Castle Rock, PipeLine pact on delivery

Cyberbiz Brief

Castle Rock Entertainment has inked a deal with TRW’s Picture PipeLine under which it will use the service to digitally deliver dailies from Australia to producers on the Warner Bros. lot during production of its comedy “Down & Under.” Warner Bros. is an investor in the company, which is competing with a slew of other ventures, including IBM-backed NeTunes, Media.net and Wham!Net. “Down & Under” is the second feature film project for Picture PipeLine in Australia and comes after the January launch of the company and the announcement of its first client, NBC’s television drama “Third Watch,” which 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.

“Today’s production community is becoming increasingly more global, and with that growth comes the need to overcome vast distances in order to collaborate creatively,” said Tom Gritzmacher, prexy and chief operating officer of Picture PipeLine.
