Eileen Godoy
Promoted to Head of Post Production
post-production facility Cognition has completed construction of a 4K digital
intermediate theater as part of its ongoing multi-million dollar expansion.
Designed for finishing studio and independent features, the theater is among
the most technically sophisticated in Southern California with an array of
state-of-the-art color grading, editorial, projection and sound features.
Several film projects have already come through the new resource, including A Happening of Monumental Proportions and
Marauders, both finished  using
an ACES workflow.
Cognition has also promoted Eileen Godoy to Head of Post
Production. Formerly Executive Producer, Godoy will oversee post-production operations;
lead sales, business development and marketing; and direct personnel and
recruitment. Godoy is a 20-year veteran of the post-production industry with
previous senior-level experience at NBC/Universal and EFILM. The facility is
currently seeking to expand its sales team.

“We couldn’t be more proud and excited to promote Eileen, a
bright, engaging, and knowledgeable professional who has thrived in a primarily
male-dominated field,” said Cognition CEO Brian Pope. He also added, “As a
company that strives to be a leading provider and developer of post-production
and VR technology, we’re thrilled to now offer  the community our new creative office space
and state-of-the-art theater.”
The 12-seat, 4K theater
features SGO’s Mistika platform, which combines color grading, editing,
finishing, visual effects and other functions. It is also equipped with a Barco
DP4K-P post-production projector and a 21-foot Stewart Filmscreen reference
screen. Additionally, the room has a 7.1 surround sound system and an
acoustical design suitable for feature sound work.
“The theater’s primary function is digital intermediate-style
color grading and finishing, but it is designed to be a multi-function room,”
explains Gustavo Mendes, Cognition’s workflow consultant. “It is an excellent
theater for all types of screenings, and if a production wanted to mix in the
space, it has that capability. We offer filmmakers many options.”
Additionally, Cognition has a smaller theater, also featuring a 4K
Mistika system that is designed for television, documentaries and similar
projects. Its reference display is a Dolby PRM-4220, a flat panel monitor proven
to outperform CRTs for color reproduction. The theater supports grading and
finishing in P3/Rec 709 and XYZ color spaces. Recent projects include The Little Master, an ESPN Films
documentary for its 30 for 30 series.
Cognition’s further expansion plans include an emerging
technologies research center and creative office space. The research center
will house an in-house team that’s doing groundbreaking work in virtual
reality, photogrammetry, augmented reality and other emerging media. The
creative office space is available to film and television productions now on
short and long-term bases and is being repped by Patrick Amos of CBRE. The
overall aim is to build a creative campus that can host projects from
incubation through final delivery.
The project was designed by Pope and architect Rios Clementi Hale Studios. Audio Intervisual Design is handling IT
and systems integration. SoundKinetics is providing acoustical engineering.
Cognition is
located at 900 N Cahuenga Blvd., Suite B, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
