Production & Post

Project requirements

Academy Award® winner Bobby Moresco (“Crash”, “Million Dollar Baby”) directed the film from a screenplay he wrote himself, based on characters created by Joseph O’Donnell. AMBI Media Group.

Augustus Color, the Rome-based post production lab, needed to deliver dailies and other assets from production locations in Italy to production partners (e.g. editors, visual effects providers, producers) around the globe.

WCPMedia Services’ role

Thanks to WCPMedia Services full dailies sets has been delivered to the film’s editorial team following each production day. Select raw assets were sent to visual effects providers. Producers and other stakeholders, meanwhile, were able to review dailies media via password-secure WcpMedia Virtual Screening Rooms.

Moreover Augustus Color used WCPMedia throughout the post-production process to store and share assets, including rough cuts and high-resolution media from visual effects and color grading sessions.

The result was significant time and cost savings, and improved security over the delivery of physical assets.

“WCPMedia streamlines the production workflow by reducing transfer times compared with standard courier delivery—and does so with top level security,” explains Alessandro Pelliccia, general manager in Augustus Color and technical supervisor for this project.
“With the same unique upload, we can feed the editorial team and the virtual screening room simultaneously. It’s a beautiful collaboration tool that allows editors and producers to review content and work together as a team from any location.”
