The Hollywood Post Alliance’s HPA Judges Award for creativity and innovation in post-production will go to Testronic Labs and Steven J. Scott of EFilm.
Testronic Labs is a leader in quality-control technologies that run the gamut from mastering to consumer deliverables. The company recently opened a new file-based lab in Burbank that offers an automated workflow for QC of the entire post production workflow.
Scott, a senior colorist and creative director at EFilm, was instrumental to post-production on Terrence Malik’s “Tree of Life.” He worked with the helmer, d.p. Emmanuel Lubezki and visual effects supervisor Dan Glass so that the film’s unique look could be brought to screens. In the process he created proprietary Look Up Tables (LUTs), which allow for the greatest range of information latitude possible.
Award honors companies or individuals who have shown excellence in post production. The achievement can be in creative storytelling and/or technical innovation. The award can also be given to any unique creative project or other type of content, a workflow, proprietary technical innovation, hardware, software or creative approach.
The HPA Awards take place Nov. 10 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
