New York post-production
facility is currently using Cortex to process dailies for the sit-coms “Louie”
and “Broad City.”

HOLLYWOOD—Running Man, a full-service New
York post production facility, has selected MTI Film’s CORTEX Dailies as the
centerpiece of its dailies processing workflow for television, feature films,
documentaries and other projects. Cortex’s innovative  technology streamlines dailies processing,
enabling Running Man to quickly deliver media to editorial teams, generate
review media accessible across a variety of platforms, and lay the groundwork
for efficient color grading and other finishing processes.

“We were
looking for an advanced dailies solution for our episodic work,” says Running
Man principal colorist Troy Thompson. “A lot of inefficiencies arise when shows
lack a proper dailies workflow. Editorial systems don’t handle all of the
metadata and a lack of metadata can cause problems during the finishing
process.”
“Cortex
offers a ton of benefits,” he adds. “The shows get a better looking image to
work with throughout the offline process, and we get the metadata we need to do
the conforms.”

Additionally, Cortex results in significant time and cost
savings for Running Man’s production company clients. It automates dailies
processes that formerly required an additional technician. “Typically shows
will hire an extra assistant to handle transcoding and syncing, Cortex removes
the need for this, and handles the processing of dailies much faster. This
makes the entire post process more efficient” Thompson observes. “Dailies have
become very complicated. Producers want to see dailies online; they want custom
burn-ins and overlays. All that is achievable with other systems, but nowhere
near as fast as with Cortex.”
“Cortex
enables us to turn over shows very quickly,” he adds. “With today’s deadlines
and budgets, the more efficient we can be the better. We are benefiting
throughout the entire pipeline.”
Running Man is currently using Cortex to process dailies for
the fourth season of FX Network’s Louie
and the debut season of Comedy Central’s Broad
City.
The facility is currently processing in excess of seven hours of
footage for the two shows each production day, and is able to deliver dailies
media to the editorial teams by late the same day.
“We pride
ourselves on being a company that understands workflows,” says Thompson, “and
we don’t cut corners. So it’s important to me to have reliable tools.  Simply put, Cortex works.”
