Sony Pictures Colorworks Opens 4K Post Production Facility

By | Wednesday February 6, 2013 @ 5:15pm PST

The new facility, Colorworks 4K Television is located at the Sony Pictures lot in Culver City, and will provide services for original shows shot in 4K as well as 4K remastering. The facility features two 4K grading suites and one editorial finishing suite, with direct synergy to Sony Pictures Television Backbone. Sony cites what it claims is growing demand for the format after the unveiling of new 4K camera systems, of which Sony produces two. HD broadcasts are not yet universal in US homes, with low power stations still not required to make the transition, but since the 2009 conversion the format has grown in prevalence, even if global shipments of HD televisions declined by 4% in 2012.

Mike Sitrick, Shame On You…

By | Thursday July 12, 2007 @ 5:31pm PDT

sitrick.jpgI’ve known Mike Sitrick for a long time. He’s a PR maven who prides himself on being a family man. Which is why he should be filled with self-loathing for allowing his firm to promote a torture porn pic like Captivity, much less an even more disgusting premiere party whose selling point was its political incorrectness. (Let me make it perfectly clear: I support talent’s right to make the movie, just not business people profiting from it.) Sure, I received all those inane emails announcing the bash, and I did the right thing: I trashed them. Other journalists fell all over themselves covering the event so as to diss it: really, they’re lemmings hurling themselves off the cliff. There is only one way to stop the business of these torture porn movies: by shaming the people who receive money for releasing them, publicizing them, having anything to do with them. So, Mike, how could you? (And how could you, After Dark’s  Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman?) Take that Captivity money and donate it to charity and pledge publicly right now you’ll never get involved with torture porn pics again. Until Mike does, I urge Hollywood and other companies to shun Sitrick and Company because there is such a thing as guilt by association.
