London – Soho-based BTV Post is currently using Mistika for the grading, online finishing and digital mastering for all platform deliveries of Shakespeare’s Globe’s fourth season of filmed live theatre performances of The Taming of the Shrew, Henry V and Twelfth Night for an international Shakespeare experience, SGO said in a press release.

Filmed on the traditional open air stage at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, the three engaging plays will be delivered for broadcast, DVD and to Arts Alliance Media for Digital Cinema in 2D HD. Mistika was used in all three films by Mistika VFX artist and colour grader, Ian Grey at BTV Post to cleverly create three distinctly different grading expressions required to convey the comedic and historic elements to match the respective Shakespeare genres.
