Post-Production Supervisor Franco Casellato and WCPMedia Services on Enabling Long-Distance Collaboration
15th May 2017

The Young Pope

Add widely lauded director Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty, Youth), who has had six films in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, to the list of highbrow auteurs who have been lured to the small screen by its promise of sophisticated longform storytelling. Sorrentino’s 10-episode series, The Young Pope, debuted at the Venice Film Festival before premiering on Sky Atlantic in Italy and making its way stateside via HBO. The project was produced by Wildside, co-produced by Haut et Court and MediaPro, and co-financed by Sky, HBO, and Canal+.

The Young Pope team used WCPMedia Services’ cloud-based collaboration platform, including a virtual screening room, to share media during production and post. Dailies were distributed via WCPMedia Services Screening Room web application, which employs automated transcode and delivery technology to optimize files for secure review. “They wanted to be 100 percent confident in the quality and the look of the material they were sending abroad,” said WCPMedia Services Sales and Operations Manager Luca de Sensi in a prepared statement.

Digital delivery workflow
“We accommodated their video specs and color science into our workflows to deliver a result that was color accurate and consistent across the board.” Production media was stored at a Swiss data center with Tier IV certification, and all access was strictly tracked and controlled, WCP said.

Bent relying on WCPMedia's cloud platform
4th May 2017

WCPMedia Services

ROME, ITALY — Bent is the latest motion picture production to move its media management to the WCPMedia cloud. Augustus Color, the Rome-based post production lab, is using WCPMedia’s platform to deliver dailies and other assets from production locations in Italy to production partners around the globe. Full dailies sets are delivered to the film’s editorial team following each production day. Select raw assets are sent to visual effects providers. Producers and other stakeholders, meanwhile, are able to review dailies media via password-secure WCPMedia Virtual Screening Rooms.

The result is 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.”
