Technicolor-PostWorks New York has acquired finishing studio the Room, whose recent post-production work includes “St. Vincent,” “Her,” “The Giver,” “True Detective,” “Marco Polo,” “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown” and “Years of Living Dangerously.”
The Room, which has been hosted in Technicolor-PostWork’s premises for the last three years, will integrate its staff, equipment and 4K production workflow into PostWorks’ 110 Leroy Street facility. The Room founder Ben Murray will assume the new role of VP, creative services, for Technicolor-PostWorks.
“Ben will be our creative and technical lead, focusing on workflow design, training, talent management and recruiting,” Technicolor-PostWorks COO Rob DeMartin said. “He will work with clients in pre-production, oversee project management, collaborate with our engineering team and assist in overall strategic planning.”
The Room, designed by architect Rafi Segal to service independent films, longform television and documentaries, features three finishing suites, each with its own Autodesk Flame Premium workstation and 4K Christie projector.
