Los Angeles – The Nucoda Film Master played a crucial role for Final Frame in finishing Academy Award documentary contenders Hell and Back Again and If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front.
Located in Chelsea, New York, Final Frame is a full service post production facility with a history of helping filmmakers create Oscar winning projects, including Inside Job and The Cove.
Director Marshall Curry returns to Final Frame with If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, after working on Sundance competitor Racing Dreams at the facility. The Oscar nominated If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front tells the remarkable story of the rise and fall of an activist cell of the Earth Liberation Front, the environmental activists whose radical tactics are considered domestic terrorism by the US government. The film featured diverse elements including archival footage, digitally acquired shots, and graphical elements. “The DVO image restoration and enhancement tools along with the Nucoda Film Master were invaluable in helping us achieve the look and images that Marshall was hoping to get,” said Will Cox, senior colorist and founder of Final Frame. “It made a crucial contribution to the film and our ability to deliver a beautiful image, flawlessly.” Charlie Rokosny was the colorist on this project.
