Oasis Imagery Opens Hollywood Facility

Oasis Imagery has opened the doors of its on-set production and post facility. The company delivers services to both studio and independent communities, supporting feature film, episodic television, commercial and trailer projects.

“In building our facility, we thought about tomorrow’s technology,” says Scot Barbour, chief visionary officer of Oasis Imagery. “For example, the recent resurgence of 3-D has provided a gamut of new technologies from acquisition to delivery. We have positioned ourselves to provide services for these and other new developments on the horizon.”

Oasis Imagery specializes in technologically advanced and cost-effective file-based workflows. The company’s 27,000-square-foot facility includes a 5.1 audio mixing suite, an 1,800-square-foot soundstage, and a THX-, Dolby- and DTS-certified 50-seat 2-D/3-D theater capable of RealD, Dolby 3D and XpanD 3-D projection. Beginning with on-set dailies, Oasis Imagery’s 3-D workflows allow the Final Cut Pro or Avid editor to work in 2-D or 3-D at any time during the editorial process. Multiple 3-D editorial bays also allow editors to work in parallel and check any edit on both local monitors and in the 3-D screening theater.

“We’re really excited about our beautiful theater,” notes Adam Green, Oasis Imagery’s chief technology officer. “Most facilities have one or two formats for 3-D viewing, but we chose to install all three of the most widely used 3-D technologies. This means that a director can view his color grade in RealD one minute and switch to Dolby 3D or XpanD the next.”

Oasis Imagery’s on-set services allow filmmakers greater creative control during production. Streamlined on-set workflows allow a cost-effective transition to the DI. Additional services include 4K/2K/HD DI, color correction, creative and online conform, scanning and recording, visual effects, sound editorial and mixing, duplication, transcoding, and digital cinema packaging.
