BACKUP & TRANSCODE

DATA WRANGLING DONE PROPERLY...

The last thing you want on any production, is to not have your rushes looked after properly.  Too many productions rely on newcomers to take care of their backup, which only leads to unnecessarily vast amounts of money being spent in post, for completely unavoidable mistakes.  Mistakes that can also lead to costly re-shoots.

Data Wranglers are more than just backup monkeys.

With our software and hardware, we log every single clip into our worksheet and check timecode errors, white balance, colour matching, lit & dead pixels, metadata, and anomalies.  All to keep a consistent, smooth workflow.

SOFTWARE

We use a variety of applications depending on the needs of the project, from Pomfort to YoYotta, as well as DaVinci Resolve for transcoding proxies and dailies.

Depending on the camera & audio system, we also use whichever application is best related to that device for checking timecode, colour and metadata.  For example, Catalyst Browse for Sony, Wave Agent for sound reports, etc.

HARDWARE

We use both Mac and PC systems.

An Eizo ColorEdge CG277 grading monitor for QC.

A DIT cart.

A Tangent Wave2 Surface Panel for detailed adjustments.
