    Digital Garden Gains Remote Telecine with DaVinci Resolve

    Digital Garden post production company in Japan installed a second DaVinci Resolve system to support its expanding colour correction services that now include remote telecine, as well as a Blackmagic UltraScope for waveform monitoring in the company’s new post production studio.

    Digital Garden is a post production in Tokyo house carrying out video and audio editing, CG work and grading services. As part of its colour correction services, Digital Garden has a creative partnership with Company 3. Through this partnership, Digital Garden offers Remote Telecine services, giving clients an opportunity to have their projects graded by colourists at Company 3 offices around the United States, as well as in the new Tokyo colour correction suites. With the addition of the new DaVinci Resolve suite, Digital Garden’s clients have increased onsite access to Company 3 colourists, as well as Tokyo based artists.

    “The new DaVinci Resolve suite lets our clients communicate better with the colourists, allowing them to understand the customers’ requirements better. This makes it easier for the colourists to grade, and also we can save time for transferring data for the remote telecine,” said Shinichi Futagami, a colourist and online editor at Digital Garden.

    Jaime OBradovich was the most recent Company 3 colourist who graded in Japan as part of the partnership. After working as a CG artist and online editor, he became a colourist and has worked on a number of commercials for clients such as BMW, Google, Twitter and AT&T.

    Because Jaime was mentored by an English colourist, his grading style has more of a European style, which is a bit lower contrast and has more range. He explained the difference between his grading style and Japanese commercials. “I see many differences here by watching Japanese television. The way people perceive bright lights is quite different here. A lot of the time their definition of warm may differ from ours. But that is what’s nice about colour. It’s creative and subjective. I am excited to be in the market and to get work in it. I think they are looking for an opinion or aesthetic that has more of a filmic look, and coming from Company 3 with all the film work we have done, we can provide a different perspective on colour correction.

    “A lot of tools in DaVinci Resolve allow you to be creative and work without having to think too hard about how you are going to do something. You can easily use the control panel, watch the screen and work. I like having a node based colour corrector instead of using layers. The tracker is my favourite, it’s very fast. As I used to be an editor, I’ve used many applications, but their motion trackers did not work as well as the one in DaVinci Resolve. DaVinci Resolve is good because the software and hardware have been designed together,” said Jaime.

    The new DaVinci Resolve system is Windows based, including four Titan cards installed in Digital Garden’s Supermicro hardware, along with DDN storage. “DaVinci Resolve is not really a turn key system, so you can decide what you want your system to be like. We wanted to create a system with the highest performance. It’s fast and stable,” said Futagami.

    “We sometimes use DaVinci Resolve for non grading tasks, such as file conversion. It supports a wide range of formats, and the speed of conversion is fast. I’ve used both online editing systems and DaVinci Resolve, and feel that DaVinci Resolve’s software architecture is simpler and easier to use. I sometimes use DaVinci Resolve only for conforming even though I don’t have to grade as it is easy to use. The software design is very well done. The features we need are placed in exactly the right spot,” he said.
