    (Cambridge, Massachusetts--April 4, 2016) Ron Bartlett, an independent re-recording mixer based in LA, earned his stripes with a string of feature films that started with Heat and has expanded to include blockbusters Die Hard, The Fifth Element, Mission: Impossible, Prometheus, The Life of Pi, and several X-Men films. An early adopter of emerging technology, Bartlett has witnessed countless evolutions of audio software fizzle and fade. However, the technology available today for cleaning up production dialogue exceeds anything that has come before.

  • Baselight Ka-booms in Belfast for new BBC broadcast project
    (London, UK--April 4, 2016) Belfast production and post-production facility Ka-boom has installed a Baselight ONE grading suite with Slate control panel to add to its existing Baselight for Avid plugins. Initial grading projects for movies and documentaries led to Ka-boom winning the finish on a major new BBC entertainment show, Can’t Touch This , which called for all the efficiencies as well as the creative power of Baselight and its interaction with Baselight for Avid. Ka-boom was founded in 2010, initially as an audio post company but quickly adding Avid video editing. Recognising that advanced colour grading was an increasingly vital part of post, the company added Baselight Editions to its editing suites early in 2015. Baselight for Avid inserts the full Baselight grading toolset into the Avid environment, allowing the editor to take more creative colour control as well as open up the possibility of a fluid and flexible exchange of grades between editors and colourists.
