Seville, Spain – The complete post-production of Director Alberto Rodríguez’s latest film Grupo 7 was achieved using SGO’s Mistika. The film has been nominated to win 16 Spanish Academy Goya Awards, for categories that include “Best Visual Effects” and “Best Photography”. The Mistika system was selected for its advanced toolsets for the entire visual effects process, which included colour grading, compositing, as well as mastering and DCP creation.
Grupo 7 (Unit 7) was filmed using various high-end digital cameras with majority of the footage captured on two Red One Mysterium X cameras at 4K. Car interior scenes and action-packed car chases were shot using the Canon 5D and 7D cameras. The Optocopter shots utilised a Panasonic HD camera. “Due to a wide range of formatted material, Mistika was a huge help in matching different shots from various formats, and giving them a consistent look throughout the film.”says Juan Ventura, Colourist and FX Supervisor.
