Mistika was used to finish Fury of a Patient Man (Tarde Para La Ira), which scooped up a plethora of awards at Spain’s Goya Awards, including the award for Best Film.
The 30th Goya® Awards presented in Madrid this month, honoured Spain’s best films of 2015.
Mistika-related projects, post-produced by SGO customers El Colorado, Free Your Mind and Next Lab & New Media were deservedly acknowledged with four prestigious Goya® Awards. Fourteen nominations also went to Antaviana Films, El Colorado and Free Your Mind. SGO congratulates its customers for their outstanding use of Mistika and highly-respected accolades.
Post produced entirely using SGO’s Mistika, suspense thriller Marshland (La Isla Mínima) is Spain’s film of the year, nominated for seventeen Goya Awards. Best Special Effects nominee for his role as colorist and digital effects supervisor, Juan Ventura Pecellín remarked, “Mistika’s impressive capabilities helped us to achieve a 100% realistic look which was nothing less than spectacular.”
Mistika played an integral part throughout the whole filmmaking process of Marshland from pre-production, image-testing, LUTs inspection, ISO, densities through to complete post. Mistika’s technology enabled the team to work at resolutions of 4K, up to 7K of complex aerial scenes for pre-visualisation and colour grading, coupled with intense car chase sequences that involved intricate light elements.
