Prime Focus has launched a new Datalab department that will allow it to process and manage data camera assets for delivery within Prime Focus or to other editing houses around the world.

The new facility operation will bring together existing knowledge and equipment from across Prime Focus’ London facilities.

Dean Watkins, who is heading it up, said: “We’ll be managing the process at every stage to ensure maximum efficiency, cost benefits and the management of colour science.

“Clients can drop off their data rushes overnight, have them delivered in the correct format to their offline the following morning and know that we’re already prepared from that moment for their online post.”

“We’re also able to use our global digital pipeline to deliver data anywhere in the world,” he said.

The team will use a range of kit – including Baselight, Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer - depending on job requirements.

A scanning service for film rushes, which can then be combined in the same data workflow, is also being offered.

Meanwhile, the sound editing on Nutopia’s epic series, America The Story of Us (pictured) has received an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Sound Editing for Non-fiction Programming (single or multi-camera) category.

The work was completed by Prime Focus senior dubbing mixer Phitz Hearne.
