The Moving Picture Company (MPC) has purchased three Inferno version 4.6 upgrades, two Fire v5 upgrades and a v5 Backdraft upgrade. The company has also prepaid for three v5 upgrades for Inferno, which will start shipping later this year.
The trend for investing in HD continues with orders for three HD Flame v7.6 systems placed last week. Two have gone to The Mill's Soho base (with four Stone r36 storage systems) and one to The Farm in Dublin. The latter has also prepaid to upgrade Flame to v8 later this year.
Meanwhile, MPC has recruited Inferno artist François Gilguy. Gilguy, who starts at the end of August, is a highly rated artist from Paris who has worked at Duran, Première Heure, La Maison, Mikros Images and Buf.
