SGO expands its European horizons further with the launch of a new office in France which will open its doors next month to serve a thriving creative community. Sergio Ochoa, credited with over 25-years as colourist and post production veteran, has been appointed by SGO to head the new Parisian-based subsidiary. With premises based in central Paris, SGO France will host Mistika colour grading and finishing services and support.

“Strategically, it is of great importance for SGO to have a world-class location in France,” says Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO of SGO. “The new office will benefit our regional customers, and further extend SGO’s global philosophy to provide outstanding customer service. Sergio is an asset to SGO and his experience is an immense advantage, he is the perfect person to head this division.”

Sergio Ochoa, Director of SGO France confirms, “I have known SGO for many years, as a Mistika customer from some of the world’s top post facilities while working on well-known commercials and feature films. Opening “SGO France” is a very exciting development and I regard it as a privilege to be entrusted to manage it. I am very familiar with the French market which has been embracing Mistika for a while now, and the timing is right to set-up a permanent SGO presence in the region. With numerous key studios and post companies from abroad also basing their services in Paris, it is a great opportunity to be established here at such a vibrant and important time in the industry.”

Many leading French post companies have already invested in Mistika to provide creative solutions for film and broadcast productions. Level S3D used Mistika to post produce the Oscar-winning Mr Hublot, whereas cutting-edge visual effects house Digitaline, with Mistika at the helm, works on commercials for major brands such as M&M, Citroen, Playstation, Pepsi, as well as feature films. Furthermore, Mistika was selected at Paris’ Digimage for the entire post production of The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. In addition, Digimage also chose Mistika for the French-language feature film Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty’s Service with Sergio credited as Stereoscopic Post Production Supervisor on the project.
