Wellington – It took a world first behind the scenes workflow in order for The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey to become the first large-scale wide release feature film to be exhibited in 48 frames per second.
Park Road Post general manager Cameron Harland says, together with SGO Mistika, it took two and a half years of research, development, testing and refinement to create the unique workflow. “From on-set services, grading and exhibiting HFR digital dailies through to the DI online, stereoscopic work and final colour grading, it was a massive undertaking.”
